We’ve done all the research for you and narrowed down the list of daily and monthly holidays and observances to find the ones that are either 1.) relevant for work or 2.) just light-hearted, engaging ways to spruce up your newsletter.

Note: Some of these days hold special cultural and/or religious significance or are observances of sensitive topics, so if you choose to refer to them in your employee newsletters, remember to be thoughtful, intentional, and considerate.

Seasonal topics and themes for employee newsletters in July
July is a perfect month to celebrate summer and really bring the community together: think picnics, cookouts, block parties, concerts, outdoor weddings, fireworks, music in the park, farmer’s markets, you name it.
Here are a few ideas of things we like to add to our July newsletters:
- Local outdoor events: Find a calendar of local events and spotlight one or two for the team; bonus points if they’re family-oriented, since often the kids are still enjoying their summer vacations!
- Recipes: It can be fun to have your employees share their favorite potluck/picnic recipe…after all, we know we’re all scrambling last-minute for something to bring to all the seasonal festivities.
- Summer intern spotlight: If you’ve hired interns for the summer, spotlight a few of the key projects they’re working on or showcase a day in the life!
- What’s new at/in the office: Your team might be enjoying the great outdoors and taking advantage of those vacation days (as they should!), so it’s nice to give the entire team a look at a particular office location, show off a new in-office amenity, or share photos from the latest company barbecue.
- Q3 goals and OKRs: July marks the beginning of the third quarter, so it’s time to set the course for a truly great season! Keep your employees updated with communication about what’s to come for Q3, or use your newsletter as a way to course-correct if the company isn’t quite on track (after all, we’re now more than halfway through it).
- Marketing offers or new items: If your company is launching something new or running a summer sale, keep your team in the loop on the details of the offer and/or the latest and greatest goods/services.
- Team-building events and activities: Don’t let employee engagement fall off during the summer months; take the opportunity to surprise and delight your team with lighthearted activities and remote events. (We’re particularly intrigued by some of the virtual classes that Confetti offers here!)
- Community efforts, causes, businesses, etc.: This is the perfect time to get out and support your local community, whether it’s attending a local event, sponsoring a company lunch at a local restaurant, or getting the team to spend a day volunteering for a really great cause. (And if you need help segmenting your employee newsletters by specific locations, we can help with that!)
