Halloween ideas for your place of work

Looking for some workplace ideas for Halloween?

OK sure, for many of us you probably aren’t even allowed in your office thanks to COVID but that still doesn’t prevent you from having some Halloween fun!

And if you’re working remotely it’s even better – you can still dress up and not have to worry about those weird looks on public transport or driving in your car!

If you are lucky enough to still be working onsite, as you already know, call centres love any excuse to decorate the workplace and dress up like crazy people!

And whilst traditionally Halloween has largely been an American thing, it’s been steadily gaining traction in Australia.

Just visit your local Woolworths or Coles in October and you’ll now notice a heap of Halloween products available.

Whilst this year (2021) October 31 is on a Sunday, you can still have a heap of fun and make your dress-up day on the Friday prior or Monday.

So if you are looking for some inspiration on workplace ideas for Halloween you’ve definitely come to the right place!

Thanks to our thousands of followers on the Call Centre Legends Facebook Page who have sent in their photos, we’ve got plenty of examples below of workplace ideas for Halloween to ensure terror reigns supreme this Halloween.

3 Great workplace ideas for Halloween

1. Dress up Contests

Having spent years working in a call centre, without fail Halloween was always the best time to be at work!

From vampires, Dracula or even a scary nurse – there is a way for everyone to get involved.

For those that really go the extra mile, have a prize for the best-dressed individual or team and reward the extra effort!



2. Decorate the workplace (either at home or at work)

It doesn’t take much to turn your workplace into the dungeons of hell (you’ve probably imagined it that way anyway!!!)  so now is your chance to bring it to life.

From fake cobwebs and plastic spiders,  gravestones, pumpkins and the odd skeleton, you will have your call centre resembling a horror movie in no time!

Why not make it a competition and give out prizes for the best workstation or team area?

3. Halloween Themed Food

Bring out the true food creatives and budding MasterChefs amongst us to design some scary looking (and great tasting!) food.

Final thoughts

Don’t leave your planning to the last minute!

To ensure you get maximum engagement, plan early.

It’s the same date every year so it’s not like you won’t know when the next Halloween is coming…

And if you’re a manager – lead by example and make sure you are the best dressed in the centre or on Zoom.

So there you have it, some workplace ideas for Halloween that that won’t cost a fortune and will still enable everyone to get into the Halloween spirit.
