June: A Great Month for Employee Engagement

Updated: Jun 3

“When people go to work, they shouldn’t have to leave their hearts at home.” - Betty Bender

Welcome to June, a month filled with opportunities to boost employee engagement and create a vibrant workplace culture. From donuts to picnics, there's something for everyone to enjoy. Here at AllProfit HR, we’re excited to share a calendar full of fun and engaging activities that can bring your team closer together and enhance overall morale.

World Environment Day – June 5

World Environment Day is a fantastic opportunity to focus on sustainability in the workplace. Consider organizing a green initiative, such as a clean-up event or a recycling drive. Encourage employees to bring reusable containers for their snacks and drinks. To prevent food waste, communicate planned initiatives to garner participant counts and coordinate who will provide donuts or other treats for upcoming events this month.

National Donut Day – June 7

Kick-off June with a sweet treat! National Donut Day falls on the first Friday of June, and it’s the perfect occasion to bring a box of assorted donuts to the office. Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme usually offer free donuts, so check their social media or website for details. Use this day to gather your team, share some delicious treats, and discuss what makes your workplace enjoyable.

"Always treat your employees exactly as you want them to treat your best customers." - Stephen R. Covey

Family Health & Fitness Day – June 8

Family Health & Fitness Day is celebrated on the second Saturday in June. This day highlights the importance of parks and recreation in keeping communities healthy and active. Organize a family-friendly event in a local park or set up virtual fitness sessions that families can enjoy together. According to the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), participating in physical activities is a great way to promote work-life balance and demonstrate that the health and well-being of employees and their families are a priority.

International Picnic Day – June 18

Celebrate International Picnic Day by organizing an eco-friendly company picnic. This event can be held at a local park or your organization’s premises. Encourage employees to bring their favorite picnic dishes and enjoy a meal outdoors. This simple activity can help colleagues relax, bond, and appreciate the beauty of eating under the sky. It’s an excellent way to build a more robust culture and reinforce the importance of work-life balance. If funds permit, support a local small business and have your picnic day event catered. 

Tips for Enhancing Employee Engagement

Here are some additional tips to help create a culture of engagement within your organization:

  1. Recognize and Appreciate: Regularly acknowledge and celebrate your employees' diverse talents and contributions. A simple "thank you" can go a long way.

  2. Open Communication: Foster an environment that encourages open and honest communication. Let employees know their voices are heard and valued.

  3. Professional Development: Offer opportunities for growth and development. Employees who see a clear path to advancement are more likely to stay motivated and engaged.

  4. Work-Life Balance: Promote a healthy work-life balance. Flexible working hours, remote work options, and wellness programs can help employees manage stress and maintain a positive attitude.

  5. Team-Building Activities: To strengthen team bonds, organize fun and engaging activities, such as team lunches, off-site retreats, or even virtual games.
