End of Financial Year (EOFY) is a busy and vital time for all businesses and often comes with added pressures and deadlines. The obvious one is the finalisation of financial accounts for the year. However EOFY may also be a peak time for performance analysis, strategic planning and retail sales.
Whatever your reason, the months from May to August will be important for your business and will likely bring additional demand upon your operations and staff. Multiple competing demands can often lead to heightened stress in the workplace so it’s important to find ways to support your team to cope during these often-testing times.
Firstly, its worth mentioning how important is to cover the basics like employee wellbeing. This includes:
- Eating well
- Taking regular breaks
Another way to support your team and boost team morale is to balance your fast paced environment with a celebration. As a specialist in this area, we have identified two ‘stand out’ objectives for companies treating their staff to some ‘time out’ during the EOFY period.
- To invigorate your team in advance of a peak business period over EOFY
- To reward your team for its results and contribution over the past financial year
It’s a win win!!
But with so many incredible team experiences available what is the best solution for your team members? Well, we have taken out the hours of hard work and broken it down into 7 team events that will help you make an informed decision and ultimately see your team culture thrive through another EOFY! (Your welcome!)
