Look after your staff
Happy New Year to you and your colleagues. Back to the grindstone, however, most of us are happy to get back into some type of routine, and certainly away from the evil cheese!
Might be time to get the daily fruit basket out again for your staff to get them healthy and bug free. Try and be ahead of the game by reducing time of sick. No better time to re-think those bad habits! Change the tea to herbal and the biscuit tin to health bars and make the most of the winter months make immune-boosting soups Packed full of vitamins and minerals from delicious ingredients like turmeric, kale and bok choy and to bring in to work for lunch.
Cut up some lemons have serve hot lemon to your colleagues instead of coffee. Did you know, a glass of lemon juice contains less than 25 calories. It is a rich source of nutrients like calcium, potassium, vitamin C and pectin fibre. So, make it a part of your daily routine and enjoy its health benefits. It’s great to sooth a sore throat as well.
Take a look around your office and see if you can move things around a bit to give people a different view or even a new desk completely. Get everyone to have a desk clear-out and sort out filing cabinets and cupboards. A clean desk, clean mind is what they say so try and start the year as you mean to go on.
Promoting good hygiene with tissues and hand sanitisers accessible can massively support a healthy environment for all. Having said not all bugs are eliminated with hand gels, therefore the most effective way to get rid of all germs is good old hand washing with soap and hot water. Make sure you have plenty of liquid soap in the bathrooms and send memo’s round to encourage people to be hygienic.
One simple solution would be to organise for a really good commercial cleaning company in to make sure everything has a deep clean is a great place to start.
Things to do: Buy lemons, extra soap, hand sanitisers, tissues, fruit and maybe even plan a social event for everyone to look forward to.
Stay warm, stay clean, have a great month.
