#5GoldenThings

With only 20 working days in December, it’s easy to burn out in the run up to Christmas – especially with all the social engagements and end of year deadlines!

#5GoldenThings brings together the top five tips from our work/life balance ambassadors to help you survive the festive season.

And we’re starting with tips from our own employees...

Perkbox’s Golden Things

Tom, Sales Development Rep

"For me, surviving the lead up to Christmas at work is eating your body weight at lunch with your friends and colleagues. Lunch filled with laughter and good food doesn’t get more festive!"

Maddie, Employee Experience Lead

"December is a short month, so don't stress yourself out by trying to see absolutely everyone. Make it easier by organising a Christmas tree decorating party at yours and invite everyone you want to see. That way, there's no stress to meet them all separately!"

Maddie, Employee Experience Lead

Mohsin, Financial Controller

"Teamwork is key for me. It’s impossible for one person to do everything during this time of year so making sure the whole team understands what everyone is doing and why can make life a lot easier."

Harvey, Product Manager

"Delete your instant messaging and email apps when on holiday! People will call if it’s really urgent. And only worry when it’s about something you can control."

Rahat, Client Success Team Manager

"The Christmas period is the perfect time of year to take stock and look back on all the wins you've had over the past year. Write a letter to yourself to say thanks for all of the great stuff you’ve done in 2019, and list the top three things you’re most proud of. Then enjoy the festive break and get yourself ready to kickstart the new year!"
