Want a more creative office environment? Then celebrate the diversity and differences among co-workers. Try bringing people together socially during cultural heritage months and holidays.

The Mexican holiday Cinco de Mayo, for example, is one such opportunity. Organize a late-afternoon gathering around the event, and you encourage co-workers to consider the contributions of Mexican-Americans. And who wouldn’t want to attend a breakroom fiesta with authentic Mexican-American foods like quesadillas, black beans and salsa cruda?
