November Bulletin Boards
NOVEMBER BULLETIN BOARDS
Bulletin board themes for the workplace November bulletin boards could run from Thanksgiving through to Harvest. The division between the two can be preplanned then executed flawlessly by removing the one display then allowing the next one to be highlighted against yellow or gold backgrounds. This highlighting will basically announce to everyone that another year end is approaching and there is another chance for great change.
Thanksgiving bulletin boards ideas could include decorating the board with a tall, leafless tree made out of brown paper. Each staff member cuts out a leaf shape from autumnal colored paper and writes down something that they are thankful or grateful for. The bare branches of the tree can then be covered by the leaves, creating an autumnal feel. November bulletin boards are the perfect workplace communication tools, methods and techniques catalysts for everyone getting involved with thinking up creative November bulletin boards decorating ideas together.
Use a thanksgiving theme for a November bulletin board. This could be shared between thanksgiving, harvesting and politics. The first thanksgiving can be recreated with cutouts of Native Americans, pilgrims, Indian corn, pumpkins, scarecrows and thanksgiving recipes. The border of the bulletin board could be made out of colours that are typical of fall such as oranges, reds, browns and yellows.
Other fun and interesting ideas for bulletin boards could include:
Any color that gets attention will work for the background here. This is a very important topic in the workplace. There are times when work can get hectic or stressful. It's at these times that people can say things they don't mean to their teammates or let things upset them that would not normally upset them. Then, when the stress is resolved there is this rift in the team. There is an uneasiness or worse a silence or embarrassment to rectify and get the team functioning again. This board would need to give ideas on how to resolve the conflicts and the procedures to take, whether they involve the supervisor, etc. Something needs to be in effect, because it's unavoidable. The border can be filled with words like "Why don't we try this?" or "I'm sorry". The title could be "Resolutions" or "Let's Make This Right." What are posted on the board would be problems that Human Resources or the Supervisors deal with most often with their teams and the best possible resolutions for those problems. Each office is different, which means it depends on what the office deals with and the personalities in it as to what needs to be on this board. Keeping the title "Resolutions" might be a good choice.
Who Needs Insurance?
This is more important in our society today than people know. It is important that everyone gets the right type of coverage as well. They need to realize that "term" insurance may not be there for them when they retire. Those that live in apartments need to realize that if there is property theft or damage, the apartments are only insured for the structure and land and not the items in people's apartments, so renter's insurance is a necessity here. They need explanations of dependent and non-dependents (where do one's dependent parents fall?) so they really understand who is insurable. They need to know the difference between death and Dismemberment and Accident Insurance. They need to know if their Life insurance provides burial and/or built up cash value. You could put on the board the different types of insurance, the possible ways of saving and how not to duplicate coverage. Make a green border, since it has a lot to do with money and/or add a house, car and dollar signs on it. The title for the top could be, "Who Needs Insurance?"
This will be a fun board to decorate, since dreams are not limited by our perception of the world as we know it. The background can be a soothing light blue, purple or teal. Next, the border can be decorated with snakes (a common reptile in dreams), unicorns, clouds, etc. Borrow a book from the library or co-worker. Someone usually has one that interprets what certain symbols stand for. For instance a tornado might mean you're facing some sort of challenge or that you're soaring in a new direction. Search a dream dictionary for common items people dream about and their meanings. Title this board "Dream a Little Dream..." or "What Dreams Can Mean." Depending on what a person is struggling with or going through or happy about in life these symbols can vary. Put pictures of the most common items on the board, listing under them the things they can stand for. Put stress on what the word can mean, so that we do not freak anyone out. We want everybody to have good dreams!
