Right now, the Coronavirus crisis has impacted all of the core team culture practices that Human Resources and managers have been working to perfect. These are unprecedented times, and it is now more important than ever to shift team-building practices to fit the current climate.
Managers have to be more mindful about going out of their way to virtually recognize their employees and team as a whole. It’s critical that employees are recognized for their hard work during these times, even if that recognition has to be virtual. At TeamBonding, we have developed programs that are designed for giving recognition to virtual teams and employees. The following 5 programs are effective at recognizing virtual employees, bringing virtual employees together, and strengthening the virtual team culture.
Reward your virtual team with a Virtual Casino Night! This virtual event is ideal for teams that want to bring their virtual employees and treat them to a fun night. We work with you, the client, to set up the casino night and make sure you have the right combination of tables for the best experience. Block off an afternoon to give your employees a fun and memorable experience that will make them feel appreciated.
Show your team you recognize their hard work by treating them to a Virtual Happy Hour with a cocktail kit sent to the virtual employees’ home! Our cocktail kits include everything your virtual employees will need to mix up the cocktail or mocktail of their choice. This event is perfect for energizing remote teams that deserve a reward for their hard work over the past few months.
Don’t have the time for a virtual happy hour event? You can always send your remote team our cocktail kits a la carte!
What could be a better reward than chocolate? TeamBonding’s Online Chocolate Tasting event brings an artisanal experience to the comfort of your team members’ individual homes. The guided tasting is complemented by chocolate games, all sure to bring a bit of joy to your employees’ days! A bit of sweetness is the best way to show your appreciation for your team’s hard work.
It may be difficult to host summertime outings this year, but Around the Virtual Campfire brings the best of summer to your employees! Each participant will receive an artisan s’mores kit to join in the fun. This event will bring your team members together with live music, memory-making conversations, and of course, the best tastes of summer. This event is sure to provide a relaxing and entertaining break between their busy workdays.
Nothing relaxes and revitalizes your mind like creating art! In our Virtual Team Painting activity, your team members will get the opportunity to work with one another in a low-stress, high-reward setting. With a few necessary materials and a world of creativity at their disposal, team members will feel rewarded for their hard work and resilience navigating the virtual workplace!
If you don’t have the time for a team-building event to recognize your team’s hard work, our DIY employee appreciation kits are available to send to team members all over! From s’mores kits to candy kits, these gifts are the perfect way to show your team you appreciate them.
A successful team building activity will surely mean a more comfortable, successful workplace environment for any company, large or small.
