    5 ways to ensure your dental staff has a great holiday season

    From throwing a holiday party to giving your employees some well-deserved time off, here are some tips to keep your staff in the holiday spirit.



    3. A holiday party

    This one depends on who you’re talking to. Some people really enjoy their work family, while others want to get away from their coworkers as quickly as possible. There’s a value to having social functions where you can enjoy each other without the pressure of the office. Those events can provide a tremendous amount of good relationship building and a chance to resolve any issues. The ugly part is if alcohol becomes a problem. It’s up to you to decide whether or not to serve alcohol, but your staff might not come without it. People getting drunk and making inappropriate remarks can cause serious challenges. Perhaps schedule a party for January or February when all the holidays are over so that you can enjoy your staff when they are more relaxed and at ease.
