Work Hard, Play Hard, right? Even research shows that taking small breaks in your work day helps to increase focus, reduce stress and stimulate the brain. That’s why SERVUS! has recently implemented the Sunshine Committee! This committee is made up of rotating SERVUS! members, who work together to create fun activities to get our team away from their desks and interacting with one another. The activities are usually short, 20 minute breaks, but they are exciting and rewarding. So far, we have celebrated Cinco de Mayo; complete with chips, salsa and festive music, National Recess at Work Day; with corn hole, sidewalk chalk and wiffle ball, and most recently we had a “Sunshine at the Stadium” night where SERVUS! office members and their families gathered at the ball field to watch an exciting DC Bombers game!
Since implementing the Sunshine Committee, everyone has been extremely appreciative, and spirits around the office have been lifted. Spreading a little bit of sunshine has gone a long way in showing our office team how much they are appreciated!
