January 2022 Holidays for the Workplace

While this is just after the holiday season and the start of the new year, as workers get closer to the end of January, the weather can start to get them down. Perking them up by celebrating National Compliment Day on the 24th or Have Fun at Work Day on the 25th can go a long way toward getting over those winter blues.

The new year has begun, and we kick off the month with Motivation & Inspiration Day on January 2nd. When everyone is back to work play some trivia at work to get everyone's minds in gear. But our favorite workplace holidays are "Show & Tell at Work Day" on January 8th and International Fun at Work Day on January 28th.

If you are looking for a holiday gift for employees, look no further than Successories.
