Halloween: Most ODs Enjoyed a Scary Good Time

After some years of quarantine-o-ween, most ODs and practices brought back the Halloween spirit.

In a recent WO Poll, more than 40 percent of respondents report loving Halloween and getting festive for the holiday. It’s a fun, team-oriented day in the office—maybe not the most productive, but good for team morale and mental health, said almost half of those who celebrate. Worth it!

More than 75 percent of respondents say their staff has the option to dress up in costumes or accessories if they want to, and their offices got decked out in Halloween décor. Another 15 percent say they decorate with seasonal displays, but costumes aren’t involved. About six percent of respondents set candy out with a few small decorations, but nothing major—still spreading the spooky spirit, though.

More than a quarter of respondents say that everyone in the office gets involved with a certain theme for the big day. About six percent say staff members get involved with small accessories or t-shirts.

Not everyone is a fan of the celebration, though. Twelve percent of respondents discourage costumes in the office, and almost 10 percent wish they could avoid the office altogether.

More than half, 56 percent, of respondents for this poll were female ODs, and 15 percent were male ODs. Twenty-nine percent were non-OD females.
