It's official. The holidays are here. And the staff at Synergy Marketing Consultants couldn't be happier!
Not that we don't love interacting with business owners all throughout the year in an effort to generate greater business for both their companies and our own. But there is no better time to unwind, relax and enjoy your family and friends than this time of year. That, and events offering all of the food and drink you can fill yourself with are now taking place.
Synergy will be enjoying its annual holiday party this weekend. Our only problem is that we can't figure out what we like best. The music, the food, the drink or the company of our fellow associates who have grown into one big family over the past year?
While the true answer is ?all the above?, it cannot go unmentioned that the Synergy staff truly has a good time together. We believe that the general upbeat attitude of our team members is what keeps our business successful year round. We have mentioned before on our blog, the importance of maintaining a valued, happy and energetic staff. And each year, at our holiday party, it is proven true as our team really shows that they can party!
Never underestimate the strength of a work gathering. The cameraderie shared between co-workers in an environment outside of the normal workplace really helps set the tone for the new year. Sometimes, even though individuals have worked in the same place for months, they may not become friends until such a party.
Most importantly, these parties show that you cherish your staff. Without them, where would your business be? Be sure that your team enjoys a fun and safe event to wrap up the year and let them know they are a valued part of your company.
Sometimes these parties can include award ceremonies of some kind where, even in a joking fashion, employees are handed out certificates to commemorate their contributions or even their personalities. This individual recognition shows that you pay attention and truly care about the members of your team.
So enjoy the party Synergy! And to the rest of Canada, have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
