How to Create a Spirit Week to Engage Your Employees

One of my favorite activities to plan is our annual C.A. Short Company Spirit Week. Sure, it may sound childish, but creating a Spirit Week for your employees has big benefits! Similar to a Spirit Week that is often held at high school's surrounding Homecoming festivities, our take on Spirit Week allows our employees to amp up their creativity, raise awareness regarding causes that C.A. Short Company is proud to support, and strengthen the bond of our employees. More, we tie our Spirit Week with an exciting, company-wide event. In 2015, our event was tied to our fundraising for the Relay for Life - Cleveland County Shelby for 2016.
