Good Habits in the Workplace for 2018

January and February provide companies and their employees with a fresh start. This time of year is often a crucial period for business, so it’s important to adopt good habits in the workplace in order to start as you mean to go on.

Long-term goals

The day in the life of an employee is packed with short-term goals; however, the new year is a chance to map out what you want to achieve on a personal level in your career. What have you achieved in the last 12 months, and where do you want to be in the 12 months ahead? Company managers and directors can do the same regarding predicted revenue, marketing reach, productivity, staff retention and company expansion.

Recycling

In 2017, research suggested that only 19% of British workers actually recycle in the workplace. In fact, most people are more likely to recycle at home than in the office. Companies should make sure that recycle bins are stationed all around the premises. Purchasing secondhand equipment is also an effective method of being kind to the environment whilst saving a little cash.

CSR activity

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is hugely important for many companies but can often be overlooked in the day-to-day running of a business. It is essentially a management concept by which companies have a responsibility for their social and environmental impacts on society. Have a think about which initiatives can be introduced in order to improve the impact your business has on the world.

Team bonding

A happy office breeds productivity and success. There are numerous team building exercises that can be utilised in order to create a platform for employees to interact with each other more positively. Organising a team lunch or evening activity once a month is a great way for colleagues to spend time with each other in a relaxed environment. Also, move the seating around every 2-3 months to refresh the office dynamic and give people a chance to work closely with new people.

Cycling and walking to work

Studies tell us that only a very small percentage of people actually cycle to work, whereas around 36% of people still drive to work. Do you walk or cycle each day? If the answer is no, it’s worth considering doing so. If your job permits it, why not ditch your car for a bike this year? There are obvious financial, environmental and health benefits. Old habits die hard but 2018 provides you with a chance to start anew.

I have run several car park ticket advertising campaigns with AdsOnTickets to promote my Subway Stores, and each time have seen a five-fold return.

We have used this method of advertising to promote sales and to get our name known to a wider audience, for the last 2 years...it works nicely for us.

Car park ticket advertising has been most effective, we've seen a real drive in volume and redemption from our target audience.

This has the potential to reach those people that are paying for ad-hoc parking and so are potentially more likely to change travel behaviour.
