How to bring coffee shop vibes to your workspace

There’s something to be said about spending a few hours working from the local coffee shop.

Managing your 2020 budget

Imagine you’re looking at last year’s company-wide spend report.


At the top of the list are necessary expenses like employee salaries, healthcare costs, rent/utilities. Other major expenses, like software subscriptions essential to each department and marketing expenditures, can take up a hefty portion of budget, too. 


These categories tend to be top of mind and are deeply analyzed on an annual if not monthly basis. They often represent 80% of overall spend and are critical to the company’s mission.

The Perks of Office Puzzles

If you follow us on Instagram, you’ve seen by now that OfficeLuv has taken up a new hobby this season – puzzling. It started as a casual lunchtime conversation about cozy winter activities which grew into the realization that our team is full of avid puzzlers. A coworker brought in a few puzzles that she received in her Puzzle-of-the-Month Club, and soon the extra table in the lunchroom became the puzzle station.


With the completion of our first puzzle last week, we thought we’d take some time and reflect on the perks that puzzling has brought to our office. Here’s why we’d recommend it as a breakroom activity for any office.

Thanksgiving used to be one day long. 

 

Now the season for giving thanks gives us a whole month of celebrating gratitude, hosting Friendsgivings, and kick-starting the holiday season. 

 

In the office, however, with end-of-year goals sneaking up and holiday party planning in the works, it can be easily missed. This often raises the question: Given everything else going on, is it worth the trouble of planning an office potluck for Thanksgiving? Will my colleagues still be excited, post photos to Instagram, and enjoy the celebration, or will the meal be rushed as everyone is preoccupied with other stressors?

 

Here are a few ideas to help you decide 1) Is it worth having and 2) If so, how you can organize this event without sacrificing too much of your time.

Managing your Office Holiday Spend

Halloween has come and gone and all that remains in the office candy bowl are a few Tootsie Rolls, Circus peanuts, and a handful of candy corn that no one has the heart to throw away.

 

While businesses aren’t going bankrupt over the annual Halloween candy run, or the upcoming holiday happy hours, all of this Holiday-related spend is a source of ambiguity that leaves office managers with questions like: How much did we spend? What did we order last year? What should our budget be for next year?

 

Tracking this manually is a tedious process. And it also kind of ruins the holiday spirit. As an office manager, you want to enjoy the season too, not be running a Post-It note tally of the egg nog vs. antler headband spend
