Before I go ahead, let me tell you, this is not a post that tells you how you should be productive on a working weekend by working yourself to the bone. It is a post to tell that, you can be productive on a working-weekend even without working! How cool is that!?
The term productivity seems to be overrated and has been constantly attached to work-life (I mean the actual work-work!). But productivity has a much wider definition. Productivity also means the time taken to think, research, build ideas and share knowledge. Additionally, it means giving your mind a break – do you agree with me on this? Well, you should!
Unless you give your mind a break, how are you going be productive?
Statistics show that when employees engage in team bonding activities, they are more efficient and productive in all ways, and not to mention, they are even more attentive and innovative.
Here are 5 ways to have a super productive working weekend:
1. Team Lunch
Socializing with your colleagues is the key to forming a collaborative culture at work and getting to know your team. Going out together for lunch is a great way to socialize. Make it a point to go out on a team lunch every working-weekend.
2. Conduct interactive sessions
Interactive sessions are a great way of sharing knowledge, generating ideas and resolving deadlocks. This also helps in team bonding and each one can narrate the experience they had during the entire week.
3. Get involved in creativity
Organise small activities that involve showcasing employee talents. This is the best weekend activity that can be carried out and works as a great stress buster.
4. Games and fun
Who doesn’t love games? Come up with some games that you can conduct at your working space and try to create a fun, relaxing environment. Hint: Beer Pong! 😉
5. Appreciation day
This day, your team lead can have small giveaways as tokens of appreciation to employees who have achieved specific goals during the week or have done something that is commendable. This boosts the employee’s morale as well as that of the other employees.
All ready to make your working weekend super productive?
