Diwali is a festival that is celebrated at every workplace. Decorations with marigold flowers and lights are almost mandatory without really being so. All employees look forward to the Distribution of Gifts and sweets and are almost heard guessing what’s going to be in the sweets box this year.

Many offices perform Diwali puja which the employees attend with great gusto. Ethnic is generally the dress code for the day and the staff looks forward to dressing up for Diwali in their beautiful ethnic outfits. There is even a prize for the best dressed.

All employers make sure that there’s at least one diya/candle which is lit in the office area on Diwali day even if the office is closed that day to welcome Goddess Laxmi into their workspace. Most offices have a separate budget for Diwali every year.

Hoppingo approached Anand Rao, a business owner, who told us how he celebrates Diwali in his office. Their office is closed on Diwali and the celebrations happen a day before with a low workload so that the employees go home happy and get to spend Diwali with their families. The stress is on Diwali, gifting, flowers, and decorations.

The HR department in Anand’s office starts the Diwali preparations a week in advance. They plan the gifts for each employee, decorations, themes, etc. so as to involve everyone. Ethnic is the theme for the day and the employees put a lot of effort into the dress code in a healthy competitive way. The office is decorated with flowers and employees are encouraged to decorate their desks and workstations.

Anand’s office provides the decoration materials and it’s interesting to see everyone’s decorating skills. The HR department makes an effort to find a new sweet maker for sweets every year with the stress being on homemade kinds of sweets.

Hear what Anand has to say.
