In recognition of this, we have come up with 10 spooktacular ways to celebrate Halloween at work:
1. Pumpkin Carving Contest
You can get in the spooky spirit by hosting a pumpkin carving contest either individually or in groups. A good idea would be to split your staff into groups and then have them pick a design out of a hat. You could also make it extra fun by giving them a specific time frame to complete it by. Specific awards can be given out to those who have the most scariest, creative or inventive pumpkins.
