The holidays are a special time of the year for a lot of people. Some celebrate religious traditions they hold dear. Others use this time to gather with friends and family, often involving lots of travel from far-flung locales. Still others rely on the various memories and rituals to give meaning to this time of the year.

And, the combination of the two factors can lead to a dramatic decrease in productivity for nearly all employees.

Of course, that decline in productivity can have a real impact on a business’ bottom line, which is why it’s important to think about rewards that help employees push through creatively through this time of the year. This graphic offers some ideas.
