Employee Treats – Not Tricks! Ideas For Celebrating Halloween 2023

What is Halloween really about? The candy? The costumes? No! Halloween treats for your employees!

Halloween is about people. It is the only holiday where we open our doors to strangers. The only celebration that does not remain confined to living rooms or backyards. Instead, it pours out onto the streets – wild and egalitarian.

Make this Halloween about your people – your team. Celebrating holidays as a team helps build relationships and trust between employees. It’s also an opportunity for your team to bond while having a great time.

Even if you may not be in the office, you can still get your team into the frightfully spooky Halloween spirit.

Treat Your Employees to Some Fun! No Tricks Found Here.

Check out these fun Halloween treats for your employees or coworkers that your team is sure to enjoy! Pumpkins, candy, and more. What’s not to love?

1. Pumpkin Carving

A pumpkin carving contest is a great way to bring your employees together for some face-to-face engagement, connection, and conversation. Participants will have to be creative, though. Winning the award for the spookiest pumpkin isn’t easy. And if you can’t meet face-to-face, send your team a pumpkin carving kit and do it virtually!

Are you wondering what to do with the pumpkin seeds after carving? Fret not; we’ve got you covered. Provide each team member with a recipe card for roasted pumpkin seeds so they can make a wonderful, seasonal treat. Click here for ours!
