Diversity is a great thing in the workplace. According to our culture it can hold the key to new ways of thinking, and help you reach out to a wider range of customers in order to grow your business.
However, despite the fact that we live in a massively multicultural society, it seems that the way we celebrate Christmas at work takes priority over every other religious or cultural celebration throughout the year.
As soon as December shows its face, we see tinsel strewn across desks, wreaths hanging on the walls, and colleagues giving out gifts to names they’ve pulled from a hat.
There’s nothing quite like Christmas. The lights, the snow, the presents. The stories passed down generation to generation in front of a cozy fire, blankets wrapped tight and cocoa piping hot. Feelings of warmth and togetherness, and most of all, the feeling of giving. Carols, classic films, and treasured family favorites are shared throughout the holiday season.
Every family, every culture, every person sees Christmas through a unique lens of wonder and splendor. Oh, what a wonderful time of year!
