It’s 1st December and many of us will be dusting off those Christmas jumpers or finding a new way to decorate the office with those old decorations!
Right now, all over the world, parents are scratching their heads to think of new and inventive ways to reintroduce their Elf on the Shelf for their little ones. The purpose of the elf is quite simple; he causes mischief deliberately to encourage children to be on their best behaviour before Santa visits at Christmas. It’s a bit of fun and helps generate excitement leading up to the big day.
But it’s not all fun and games for the parents; there is a committed requirement for creativity, hard work and most of all effort, so what is in it for the adults I hear you cry?! It is simply to see the joy of their children faces (and for them to go to bed on time!).
Spreading joy this time of year can be difficult, so I have given HR Acts of Kindness a festive makeover for advent, for no other reason but to spread joy to all the HR folk from far and wide!
Every day, I will be posting a daily task right here on the blog, they will run from today until Christmas Eve. The concept is simple, to brighten someone’s day, that’s it.
As a thank you, I will be sending the most creative person a beautiful gift so do make sure you share with me what you get up to by commenting on my blog, sending me an email or just a quick tweet on Twitter. Don’t forget to share the task online via Twitter #HRElfOnTheShelf and on Linked In.
So join in with some festive fun, it costs absolutely nothing but your time, you never know, you might just make someone’s day!
Task one: Tell someone in your network the qualities that you admire about them.
