Top of our company’s core values is to be “personable”.

We want all of our clients and colleagues to enjoy working with us and there is no better time to “delight and excite” than during the festive season!

When there is a healthy dose of fun injected into the working day, productivity increases and everyone is prepared to go the extra mile to overcome whatever challenges their roles may bring.

Traditions abound at holiday time so here’s our rundown of the playful things our team enjoys at Christmas…

  1. Decorating the office

    Everyone can get involved and everyone has a view of what goes on top of the Christmas tree – fairy or star? Our office manager says: “More is more when it comes to office Christmas decorations!” so we’re expecting to be knee-high in tinsel by the time you read this.

  2. Secret Santa

    Having your CEO dress up to hand out the gifts is optional but the exchange of some thoughtful, low-cost presents is a great way to bond and enjoy the gift of giving. One variation on this classic is to add the “trade-in” option whereby the second person to open a gift can change it for what the first person opened and so on. The ideal draw is to go last and have your pick of anything!

  3. Christmas gifts from the management

    Whether it’s a bonus in your pay packet, a hamper of delicious treats or a bottle of festive cheer, everyone feels appreciated when they receive a gift from their manager!

  4. The office Christmas party

    Enjoy responsibly! No snogging anyone you shouldn’t and please don’t photocopy any body parts. But enjoy! Your to-do list can wait until tomorrow so take the opportunity to get to know your colleagues a bit better and socialise over drinks or a meal.

  5. Giving back

    To give makes someone else’s day brighter and this is surely a true gift of Christmas. Whether it’s a present, a card or a heartfelt few words of appreciation, giving what you can is a win for all concerned.

… and on the subject of giving back, we have an idea!

Share with us your ideas for #FestiveFun in the workplace by tagging @TopSource Worldwide in your LinkedIn post on the subject.

We will pick our favourite in the first week of January and do our bit of giving back with a £250 charitable donation to the winner’s charity of choice.
