Summer tends to bring out a bit of the adventurer in all of us, which can create challenges when trying to keep your business productive and running amid the distraction.
With vacation absences high and schedules changing to accommodate extracurricular activities, what can you do to keep the focus on the work at hand? Try these tips!
1. Bring the sunshine indoors.
Invite your team to decorate the office or their workspaces in a summer theme. By brightening up your surroundings, your team will be basking in the cheerfulness they created instead of staring out the window all day!
2. Take your team outdoors.
Create or designate a picnic space outside, so lunches and breaks can be enjoyed in the sun. The fresh air will energize them and break them out of that cooped up feeling. You can even take it a step further and offer outdoor activities, like a basketball net or a bean bag toss.
3. Schedule some free time.

4 . Cool off with sweet treats.
Stock your refrigerator with frozen snacks to keep everyone refreshed. An afternoon pick-me-up (with a little sugar rush added!) can do wonders for everyone's spirits.
5. Make camaraderie a team sport with Team Shirts™.
At Baudville, we get a big charge out of wearing our Team Shirts
. The matching custom t-shirts build our connections with each other, and they make great conversation pieces when we're out in the wild. With more than 300 designs to choose from, you're sure to find one that represents your winning team—no ball field needed!
