Easter In The Workplace - The Opportunity For Renewal

I have a garden that over the last few weeks has burst into life with buds, blooms and blossoms - all beginning to embrace the warmer (and wetter!) weather that happens at this time of year as Spring officially makes itself at home before the arrival of Summer.

I have a garden that over the last few weeks has burst into life with buds, blooms and blossoms -  all beginning to embrace the warmer (and wetter!) weather that happens at this time of year as Spring officially makes itself at home before the arrival of Summer.

This year, Easter is celebrated at the end of March. Good Friday (29th) is when according to the Christian religion, Jesus was crucified and Easter Sunday (on the 31st) is when Jesus rose from the dead. Easter is at different times each year and interestingly, this is due to Easter being on the first Sunday after the first ‘ecclesiastical’ full moon that follows the Spring equinox.

Traditionally celebrated in religious contexts, Easter’s themes of new beginnings and of rejuvenation can also be fully embraced in the workplace which can help to create a positive and productive environment.

Easter time serves as a reminder to reflect on the past and set intentions for the future. In the workplace, this can translate into taking stock of accomplishments and challenges while staying firmly committed to growth and improvement - both professionally and personally. Whether this is via regular performance reviews, feedback, constructive criticism, appraisals, team meetings or simply from personal reflection, this time of year provides an opportunity for both employees and employees to assess their progress and aspirations which lead towards success and contentment.

Easter time can also encourage a spirit of collaboration and unity among co workers and just as many communities come together to celebrate Easter, those in the workplace can use this time to strengthen bonds among colleagues, creating a supportive culture with a real sense of camaraderie.

Team building exercises, charity initiatives and shared meals or even grouping together for a tea break can all act as a platform for colleagues to connect with one another through mutual support. Of course, the religious aspect of Easter time is one of personal choice. It is observed as the holiest day by both Christians and Orthodox Christians and is marked in approximately ninety five countries worldwide. Many people who are of other religions or no religion still celebrate by offering and exchanging eggs as gifts. These are often beautifully decorated and represent life, rebirth and fertility and here in the UK, often made of chocolate!

Workplaces can celebrate Easter in a way which embraces diversity, respects different beliefs and backgrounds while remaining in a safe and inclusive environment where all employees feel fully valued and respected.
