Host on an Even Playing Field
It’s no secret that with every group of workers, there’s a few key individuals that will take the focus in a social situation. Different personalities are what makes a team tick! However, make sure the platform you host on is an even playing field for all participants so everyone can get involved.
Suggestion – We’d suggest a main game or task that each person needs to get involved with at least once.
A Christmas Movie Watch Party
If an interactive activity might be too much to handle, try a virtual watch party where one person shares their screen. Then, have a talking session after to discuss what everyone thought of the film.
Suggestion – Create a voting poll beforehand so everyone can have a say on the festive film that’s picked.
A Tangible Element
Virtual usually means remote, and remote usually means all online. To help remote workers feel connected over the holiday period, send them a gift or box full of goodies. This could be used for the 2021 virtual Christmas party or just to show your appreciation with some treats!
Suggestion – We offer activities like Virtual Cocktail Making Classes that include make your own cocktails sent to each participants remote location.
