It’s the start of the weekend so as some are winding down, keep the activities lighthearted and fun. Here are a few suggestions.
Jazz up your Headset Day
Tools required: none – just some crazy ideas!
Time away from the phones: not applicable
Offer a prize for the best dressed headset! Make sure they are still functional though. Many thanks to VADS BPO in Malaysia for this neat idea – see image above.
Tools required: Printed bingo tickets and numbers
Cost: Nil – unless you want to offer a prize
Time away from phones: negligible
Give each employee a paper bingo ticket. Everyday someone can pick a number out of a hat, this continues until someone gets the designated objective (i.e. full house, one line, an X, a T, etc.). The person who gets bingo first is the winner!
An Appreciation Breakfast/Luncheon
Tools required: everyone to bring in some food
Time away from the phones: nil – done during lunch or before you start the work day or shift
Have everyone bring in something for the morning whether it be a bowl of fruit, some sandwiches, bottles of water, salad, etc. Make it a potluck (everyone brings something for the group to share out) and enjoy each other’s company for a short breakfast or lunch!
Tools required: room with space to lay down, stretch out
Cost: cost of instructor
Time away from the phones: nil – if you do it during lunchtimes
This is a great way to get your staff relaxed, and rejuvenated! Invite everyone to take part in a short (or lengthy) yoga class, and introduce them to a new, fun and beneficial way to relax and clear away any stress of the day.
Charity Car Wash
Tools required: buckets, car washing tools and chamois cloths
Cost: $20-50 for car wash liquid, buckets
Time away from the phones: nil – can done as a charity event during lunchtime
Get your center noticed by offering to wash the cars of employees including company execs! Do it during lunch hour and have some fun as well as raising funds by having everyone who wants their vehicle washed donate some money to your favorite charity
