How to celebrate women’s day in office?
Take a look at following 5 great ideas to celebrate women empowerment.
1. Organize a family day at the office
Ask employees (both male and female) to bring an important “female” family member to the office. This person could either be daughter, sister, mother or grandmother. This initiative will help your “employer brand” gain employees’ trust and quality goodwill.
2. Inbox the gift vouchers

And this is a perfect fit for all women on the planet. Another way to celebrate women’s day 2017 at your office is to inbox a perfect “Gift Voucher” to all your female employees. You can choose anything from Amazon to iTunes.
For senior level gifting a holiday package or may be a weekend getaway is also a significant gift to appreciate their talent and hard work.
3. Make some noise on social media
Who does not like to be acknowledged loudly and boldly on social platforms especially when their employers do it? Launch a photography campaign creating “Wall of Fame” where every female employee of your office will be appreciated in what they do best. You can use the titles like “Ingenious,” “Team Player,” “The Yes Woman,” or “Market Maven.”
Beside this, you can even launch Women’s Week campaign associating your brand with a local cause. These initiatives will showcase your organization in an entirely new light.
4. A visit to a local women shelter or NGO
It is an excellent opportunity to spend a day for a cause. Almost every year on women’s day we hear gender equality and women empowerment speeches. However, if this year you are planning to do something different put these powerful words into action and pay a visit to an NGO or women shelter.
Plan a whole day or few hours trip for your female employees or may be an entire office to an NGO and celebrate the day. You can also buy gifts or can organise lunch for them.
5. Arrange a Yoga class
Health and Wellness factor is always an integral part of every organisation’s HR policy. Take this policy to a new level on this women’s day 2017 by organising a two hour Yoga workshop in the office. It is an excellent opportunity to spread a word on “working women health.”
These are a few of the ideas that organizations can use to celebrate the day with great enthusiasm and show their support to women empowerment.
