Being productive during the holiday season can be tricky, especially when you're about to take vacation - and ensuring that your office remains productive during your absence is equally challenging.  

Jordan Cohen, expert in employee productivity at PA Consulting Group, provides ways for your office to continue to be productive during the holiday season.   

Jordan recommends taking a dry run.

"Ask your team to operate as if you are on vacation for a couple of days. Then, hold a meeting after the dry run to see how it went. Discuss the obstacles and install procedures to address them," he says in the article.  

“Dry runs let you show your team (not just tell them) how to operate without you, and it gives them the confidence to follow through on the plans in place.”
