Where do we spend the maximum time of our routine? Well, the answer is the office! Therefore, We call it as our second home, which requires decorations and enhancements whenever the need arises. As Diwali is around the corner, we cannot leave our office spaces to look dull and boring. Can you? We bet not.
Decorating the office environment just as we do for our homes can bring in the positive festive flavor. Some brightness with diyas, few colors with rangolis, subtle fragrances with flowers and the office space is set to sparkle for the festive season!
Diwali is one of the biggest festivals in India; however, not all offices go on a vacation. There is only a day or a two given as off, and rest are working days. Instead of feeling lousy and thinking about how others are celebrating the Diwali week at home, it is much better to engage in office decoration and create a shining space around the workaholics.
This way, the spirit of the festival stays alive and the employees can prove to be productive as well. That’s a win-win for both employees and employers, right?
