Take Time to Celebrate the Small Wins at Work

team celebrating

We live in a society that loves to celebrate. We celebrate birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, holidays, etc., but what about work celebrations? Of course we have the boss’s birthday, promotions, and end of year celebrations, but what about celebrating the small wins, achieved goals, and team successes? Below are a couple reasons why we should take the time to celebrate the “small wins” during your next meeting and throughout the year.

Celebrating boosts team engagement and morale: Any time there’s a celebration it brings the team closer together and boosts morale, so why wait for the end result? There are always small accomplishments along the way and acknowledging these small wins with team celebration activities boosts confidence, productivity, and the teams overall mood.

Celebrating boosts team motivation: Who doesn’t love to celebrate a company success? It’s important to remember that the wins need to be celebrated when they actually happen, but it’s also important to keep in mind how to celebrate success at work. Don’t wait a month or two to give recognition, do it immediately. This way the team stays motivated, they know what they are celebrating, and they continue down the path of success. Each team success brings the team closer to their end result, which keeps them motivated!

Celebrating encourages a culture of camaraderie: When everyone gets to celebrate a company success it makes them feel like they were part of that success. Having an environment that is positive and promotes cheering each other on will only bring the team closer and unified towards the end goal.

Remember, celebrations are often the first thing to go during budget cuts, but that can be detrimental to the teams engagement, motivation, and overall morale. Continuing the celebrations even through the tough times shows there is trust and confidence in the team’s ability to get beyond the tough times.
