DECEMBER 2nd – OPENED – Top Tip
When was the last time you checked your work email? Many of us find ourselves dipping into our inboxes during the evenings, or over the weekend. Even if you love your job, it’s important to make time for yourself. TIP: If you really can’t stay away from your inbox, limit the amount of time you’re spending on work emails when you’re out of the office. Set yourself a time (say 7pm) as a ‘cut off’….and stick to it!

Use the christmas baubles to remind you of ways you can engage your employees. Miss it on December 3rd? You can still download it here.

DECEMBER 5th – OPENED – Top Tip
At the beginning of January, many of us reflect on our day-to-day practice and habits – including our approach to work. Instead of waiting until next month, why not get started today? Whether it’s something you want to do more of in 2018, or something you want to change for the better, making plans now will ensure you’ll be prepared when the new year arrives. TIP: Take five minutes out every day in December to reflect on this – you could keep a journal, make quick notes on your phone, or send yourself daily emails.

DECEMBER 9th – OPENED – Top Tip!
When was the last time you thanked a colleague for their input, help or ideas? As the year draws to a close, the festive period is a time when many of us reflect on the last 12 months. Who have you worked closely with this year, and what did you achieve together? How did your team mates impact the success of a particular project? TIP: Remember to say thank you! Take some time out this December, to reflect on how your colleagues have been involved in what you do, and how you’ve worked together to achieve your goals. Send them an email or note to show your appreciation – you might just make their day!
DECEMBER 11th – OPENED – Top Tip!
As planning season continues, the lead up to the Christmas break can be a hectic time for many organisations. If you’re a people manager or leader, this period can be especially busy as you plan for the year ahead with your team. TIP: Sit down with each member of your team, and have an informal chat about what they hope the coming year will bring. How can you support each other in 2018? What would they like to see more of from you, as a leader – and what can you give to them? Make a note and reflect on your progress at the end of Q1.
DECEMBER 12th – OPENED – Employee Engagement Health Check
Complete these few questions and we will create you a free report, helping you to understand the health of employee engagement in your organisation and review how you’re performing against each of the enablers. Take the health check.
