Friday Ideas for Office Managers

As an office manager, you may be tired of reviewing copier leases and looking for a more fun project to work on.  Everyone knows that coworkers who have a sense of camaraderie tend to work more productively together. Here are some ideas to create a little more fun in the office:


1. Raffle!

Who doesn’t like winning prizes?  At your company’s next meeting, pass out raffles tickets to everyone so they can win an array of awesome to weird prizes.


2. Sundae Monday

Give everyone something to look forward to so they don’t suffer from a Case of the Mondays.  Pick up ice cream, fudge sauce, whipped cream, and sprinkles before the weekend in preparation.


3. Hire someone to draw your coworkers

Google your local caricaturists and have employees bond over their cartoon figures.


4. A Performance can be a shared experience

Hire a improv troupe or dance group for a surprise Friday performance.


5. Mini-golf – In the office.

Use the cubicles to create a maze and stairwells for extra challenges.  Order scoresheets from Amazon and let the competition begin!


6. Teammate Trivia

 Ask every employee to write down a few interesting facts about themselves and see who in the office can match the employee to the fact.
