  • Jingle All the Way: 7 Interesting Ways to Engage Your Employees at Work this Christmas

    This is the season of giving and receiving, of plum cakes and wine and of celebrating the birth of Christ; why then should you not treat your employees to a little holiday cheer at work. Keep them motivated for the next year that would arrive in a week, and show them who the big daddy is? The big daddy cares, and hence a little fun at work with these seven fun activities can do wonders!

    Seven best ideas to choose from

    They aren’t only ideas for fun, but ideas that would help employees think out of the box and help with marketing promos and ideas for your companies’ products and services too. The idea is to treat each employee as a customer; internal customers kept happy, and they would bring in more customers from outside!

    Play Sign up

    Begin now and speak to your IT team at work to set up a small portal (intranet enabled) for the office staff only. Open up a page of HACKS, which educates your employees about the products and services your company makes, and how it could help them shop, save and enjoy a better Christmas. Throw in daily deals and alerts, and encourage them to sign up too. Announce freebies and coupons at the end of the season, and let the rest keep waiting with baited breath for the bumper prize on Christmas.

    Hide Christmas stockings around nooks and corners

    Not a word to mention, but do get your housekeeping team to fill in stockings with notes (small chits which has prizes quoted on them). Hang these precious stockings in various colours across the workplace- at lunch when most are unaware and for 5 minutes only, announce a competition where the employees would have to find a note which says “Santa Claus is coming to town”- the team that finds the stocking first, gets the bumper prize.

    Wrapping lines

    Form two teams at work and make them stand in two snakes lines each. Place two tables for each team. The idea is to watch team work and to encourage team building. Place scissors, glue, paper and marbles on each table. Give each team 20 seconds (per person) to create a paper box with the props given, in which they would fill in 10 marbles (seems impossible). Each box with marbles needs to be delivered to the boss’s cubicle. The box with less than ten marbles would be rejected!

    Play word find

    Use Christmassy tags around the work place- some too big, some too small and some very tiny- place them around the cubicle, the workstation, the cafeteria and the water-drinking area too. Now send out an email with a subtle hint to what you want them to find. The team or individual who gets all ten right, wins a hamper.

    Pose like a diva

    Organize a photo session or a photo booth and ask your team to use props like temporary tattoos and to pose with them. The most creative, whackiest and funniest snapshot goes live and wins a hamper!

    Christmas memory game

    Divide the office into as many teams as possible and ask them to chant out the number of products or services impromptu your company brought out to the market, acquired or is in the pipeline for 2015! Give them no time to prepare!

    Bake a plum cake game

    Organize two teams and ask them to bake two large enough plum cakes at work (raw materials and resources provided by you) emulating the company’s products and services. The winning team gets a hamper!

    It is but a jolly good season to be engaged and to engage others around in a little pokey fun! While doing so, remember you not only would keep your staff motivated, but would help them think out of the box and market your brand too!

  • 5 Interesting Ways You Can Enchant Your Office Colleagues

    fun-at-work-ideas Photo Credit: kenexa.com

    ‘FUN AT WORK’, who wouldn’t want their little dose of witticisms and plenty of laughter around, while crunching numbers and meeting deadlines! Every self-respecting employee across the world would raise their hands to this idea. And with that being said, as an owner of a prestigious venture or a boss leading a team, keeping your sheep happy, brings in more wool. Here are five funny games that you could play at work, which resonate with team building and interpersonal relationships at work. Read and apply dear boss!

    Who stole my sheep?

    fun_party_games_at_office

    This is a fairly relative new game which has just started doing the rounds, where there would be two teams respectively. The aim is to create team building while enjoying a BBQ on the office terrace one Friday evening after work- helps bond employees closer. Grab a box of woolen bales, glue sticks and accessories for the eyes, the nose and the tail. Each team in less than five minutes would have to create as many sheep as possible (they are allowed to rob from the other team a finished sheep too) and submit it at the customers’ corner (the boss’s table). Since the woolen bales would be of the same colour, even when robbed there is no telling who robbed how many. The aim is to coordinate and count while production happens, and keep an eye on the miscreant competitor’s ways too.

    Haute couture at work

    Divide the office staff into three or four teams, and hand out old newspaper sheets, cardboard boxes, glue sticks, pins and colorful ribbons. The aim is to dole out stylish gowns to the boss for his daughters first prom. Each team would have a gown each made from the props given and submitted in ten minutes to the boss. Believe us when we say, this is one team building exercise that wouldn’t want to stop.

    Bake a mud cake

    For this you would need plenty of nursery mud, a few earthen pots, plastic hand-shovels and a couple of colorful leaves made from plastic to use as embellishments. Think it is easy to make a mud cake; no it isn’t! Not when it is DRY MUD. The challenge here is to make a DRY MUD CAKE, sans moisture in it and with colorful toppings. Seems impossible but the client’s demands have to be met!

    Play bridal doll up

    Divide the office staff in groups of four, and hand over a box of skin-friendly cosmetic paints to them. Show them four to five exotic bridal make-up photographs of your choice from ethnic pages online and across the world. The models would only be the women in the team, while the challenge falls on the men, and without a word spoken and the women blindfolded, the women would guide the men with hand gestures on applying the motifs and makeup on their face. Time limit would be five minutes per team- impress the boss.

    Lady GaGa at work

    While the party is on, set a theme to that of Lady GaGa and ask every team to speak and communicate with the customer (the boss) only in a song chosen by him or her. Whatever they wish to tell you or ask from you, should be in a line or two from the song chosen by you (only Lady GaGa songs). The idea is to communicate effectively, even though a real-life client may not understand jargons and yet needs your services.

    Here were five funny games that haven’t been played before but would become hits for sure, when everyone indulges in them. The winning team obviously would be honoured with gifts and prizes; mementos galore. And when all is well and happy, there is more productivity too! Have fun!

  • Cricket Temporary Tattoos- Building Up The Sporty Atmosphere In Style

    Hollywood and Bollywood for now can take a back seat; the upcoming Cricket World Cup fever is already catching up – wild and strong. Media shutterbugs are talking a lot about their favourite teams, players and yes, their fascination to get inked; just as their favourite cricketers have in the past. If you are a cricket buff – just getting to the stadium to watch a match live, doesn’t prove your ‘loyalty’. Build up the momentum that leads to the big game – temporary tattoos sporting cricket motifs, legions, players and more should now be on your mind.

    For hardcore cricket fans wanting to be associated with the upcoming World Cup Cricket saga, getting inked temporarily is one of the best ways to show their loyalty. In addition to cheer sticks, glow sticks, foam hands and luxe sporty wear and apparel – the quaint yet bold and very vibrant temporary cricket tattoos are now a rage.

    Fans across the nation and in other parts of the world are making beelines outside tattoo parlours – however, if you wish not to be inked for life; temporary designer tattoos are the way to go.

    Build a community atmosphere

    One of the best ways to build up to the game and create a sporty aura around would be with temporary tattoos. Get as wacky and wild with them; it is all about creativity and innovation – the right certified and trained experts would be best to advise and help on the same.

    Honestly speaking, there wouldn’t be a better way to show your crazy-fan-wildness towards your favourite teams – even at work your boss wouldn’t mind you sporting the body art. A special cricket tattoo is a must, and flaunting them around would burn your rivals – envy and jealous ones especially.

  • Gumtoo in Kids India trade fair

    India is the land of surprises, even for an Indian. Kids India was Gumtoo’s second professional B2B trade fair in Asia. It took us a while to understand that trade fairs (the good ones) are the best place to meet new distributors/ retailers in a market, but on retrospect we think it is also essential that a company should reach a stage of maturity in terms of its product development before any trade fair can truly generate meaningful business leads.

    Bombay Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC) Bombay Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC)

    We flew into Mumbai on 17th September the day before the fair opens its door to visitors and first surprise began when we reached Bombay Convention & Exhibition Centre at 1400 Hrs to take ownership of our booth to set it up with our display. The place was a kaleidoscope of workers, wood, display pieces, dust and chaos. Well, we knew India generally pulls off the last minute transformation (the great Indian wedding syndrome), but we truly believed its mission impossible to get the place ready in time for the start of the trade fair on 18th Sep 10am. But slowly but steadily the work progressed and by 6 pm we were hopeful that they might just pull it off. And they did in spectacular manner!

    The next surprise was witnessing the flexibility in the Indian project management system. Well, we had asked for wooden display stands in our booth and the lighting in the booth did not actually suit the product display on them. So we gently inquired if we can replace the wooden stands with glass ones? The display contractor shook his head (which actually is a yes) and it was done in a whisker.  We were happily surprised with the ease of getting through this last minute change request!

    The morning of 18th Sept was when we were surprised to see the complete transformation of the venue. It was unbelievable; no one could have imagined what the place looked like a day earlier! The trade fair was a very successful one for Gumtoo. We were pleasantly surprised to get lots of footprints in our booth and we practically interacted with potential retailers, distributors and collaborators through out the trade fair without a break!

    Kids India 2014 was organized by Spielwarenmesse eG, who are one of the most professional and experienced trade fair organizers in the world. In our conversation with them, we understood that they also have accepted “The Indian Way”. All in all, it was a memorable experience and we would love to visit Kids India again sometime in Future!
