Why is Christmas Lighting imperative for your 2023 budget?I could sit here and tell you how Christmas Lighting or an extravagant Christmas Display could increase profits and revenue, or I can share with you what I believe is the most valuable, your employees morale!
Today, in a world where it is really tough to keep and/or hire good people, we need a focus on company culture and making our team’s place of employment that much better and inviting. For some readers, this may be hard to hear, and you may feel what you do is sufficient! However, I can assure you that if you don’t have a Christmas budget, it’s hurting your company! Having happy employees is extremely important for the survival and performance of any organization.
The Facts of Christmas Lighting
According to Warwick Business School, they find that “Human happiness has large and positive causal effects on productivity,” the team said. “Positive emotions appear to invigorate human beings, while negative emotions have the opposite effect.” Additionally, that “happier workers, our research found, were 12% more productive. Unhappier workers were 10% less productive.” Exterior Christmas decor does exactly that. Trees, wreaths, lights all make a more joyous place of employment and somewhere people can be proud to work.
Employee happiness is essential
If you’re a business owner reading this, you might think “How the heck can Christmas Decor impact my employee morale?” First, Christmas lights will spike dopamine, a feel-good hormone that produces happiness – improving office morale, employee efficiencies, as well as getting everyone (including your customer’s) in the spirit for the Holiday Season! Secondly, for most, we associate the twinkling lights with past childhood memories. For me, that was when my father would use a ladder from our roof to our tree to hang a giant homemade 5’ star on our biggest tree. I do not advise doing this, but it is one of my favorite childhood memories that I will always cherish around the Holiday!
So, if you take anything from this I hope it’s that we as humans love bright lights around the Holiday! Don’t be a grinch this year, stand out and start to be the difference in your company’s culture!
