Will celebrating Halloween affect the team’s effectiveness?

Workplace friendships satisfy the psychological need to belong. Employees who have good relationships with their co-workers are satisfied with their work and less susceptible to burnout. In return, the organization receives creativity, efficiency, fantastic results, and higher retention. Sounds like a fairy tale?

Let’s make it a Halloween nightmare today 😈

Integration is one of the ways to build community and spirit in the team. Friendships at work are formed under certain conditions that employers can create. Characterized by fear and Halloween horror, group play is a great way to bond and connect with co-workers. Research suggests that this type of bonding is linked to oxytocin, which is released in terrifying situations. This hormone helps build a sense of closeness between group members.

It’s time to put that knowledge to the test with a spooky night. If you are reading this, it means you have the courage to look at photos from the corporate Halloween. Boo hoo! 🕷 🎃
