Spring is Coming! How to Host a Safe Live Event in 2021 COVID-19 has dominated our lives for more than a year now, but, along with warmer weather and blooming flowers, the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel has appeared. Vaccinations are rolling out more quickly across the country, and people are — cautiously — starting to look at what the “new normal” will look like. One of those decisions is whether to stick with virtual events for a bit longer, or whether it’s finally safe to get together in person once more for live events.
There’s no denying that America — and frankly the entire world — is ready to get back to live events. After a year of quarantine, social distancing, virtual parties, and Zoom calls, there is a strong desire to connect with other people in person again. And with vaccinations picking up steam, that desire for live interaction is only getting stronger.
The words work and fun don’t always go hand in hand. Enjoying your work can become tricky when you feel as though you have been doing the same thing day in and day out for years. Especially with the recent remote culture, our work tasks seem to have become more mundane than ever. Since we spend so much of our time at work it is important to have fun and enjoy ourselves every once in a while. International Fun at Work Day on April 1st is the perfect day to break away from the monotony of everyday office tasks and enjoy your time with your colleagues.
Holidays are always a great excuse to get the team together and lift everyone’s spirits, especially while working remotely. St Patrick’s Day is no exception! The famous holiday, celebrated annually on March 17th, is typically a day of merriment, dancing, feasting, and drinking. This St. Patrick’s Day TeamBonding has got the perfect plan. Pull out your best green attire and get ready to party your shamrocks off. Here are the best activities and events to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day virtually with your team.
It’s a common problem, especially in today’s world with so many demands coming at us from so many directions — you know what needs to get done, you know how it needs to get done, but for some reason, you’re struggling to “just do it” already.
When we feel connected to one another, we get more done: that is basic human behavior. But in this day and age, connecting with co-workers can be difficult to do in person, leaving the online route as the only path forward. But just because you can’t be together physically doesn’t mean your employees, peers, or fellow office dwellers can’t have that same sense of camaraderie and connection.
Daily routines and consistent habits provide structure and discipline to everyday life. Having a set wake-up time, lunch, and after-work routine can help reduce stress and anxiety and increase our overall health and wellness. However, the remote work phenomenon has caused many people to have to adapt to new work environments and routines. As a result, some people have developed unhealthy work from home habits. After months of remote work, staying healthy while working from home can seem like a difficult task. Learn how to maintain a work-life balance and develop healthy habits to keep remote work sustainable with these tips for staying healthy while working from home.
The first day of spring is March 20th, but depending on where you live it might be here sooner than you think! It’s never too early to start planning something to look forward to, especially in today’s time. Although last spring threw us through a whole whirlwind of changes and emotions, this year we have the opportunity to do it right and safely. Whether your team is remote, in-person, or anything in between there is a plethora of activities and ideas to take advantage of this spring to bring everyone together. Let’s list some ideas and key dates to keep an eye out for.
Casino games are a fun past time for many, and the variety makes them appealing to a lot of different people. In fact, players often have different reasons for playing each game. Roulette, for example, is quite popular because it requires no skill. It’s for people who don’t necessarily know how to gamble and just want to have fun. Blackjack, on the other hand, is all about math. Players need to understand the game and be able to add up their hands.
It’s a new year. And while some of you may have set expectations for the year, there may be some of those that didn’t set goals at all. Instead, you’d like to move through the motions and do as you wish throughout the year. Regardless of the goal-setting strategy of your choice, you most likely have a few dreams you consistently imagine yourself doing as time passes. Goals that may seem too impossible to reach.
The COVID-19 pandemic has upended nearly every aspect of our daily lives; from the way we spend our leisure time down to our work routine. To prevent the spread of the disease, many non-essential businesses have embraced the shift to remote work. Though this is great for enforcing social distancing measures and reducing exposure, working from home is not without its pitfalls.
Coming back to work after the holidays can be arduous, we can understand. But just because the holiday season has come to an end doesn’t mean the holiday spirit has to go with it. Keeping employees engaged and motivated year-round is vital to the success of all companies regardless of size. Improving engagement, showing appreciation, encouraging creativity, and effective communication all go hand-in-hand when motivating employees.
Black History Month, observed each February, is a time to celebrate the lives and accomplishments of all those in the African American community. While we should all celebrate Black History every month, this dedicated time allows everyone to share, remember, and embrace the influence of African American heritage and culture. To celebrate, we chose 10 inspiring poems to explore the rich tradition of African American poetry. Although these poems serve as just the tip of the iceberg of what needs to be commemorated, the lasting inspiration of literature allows for the injustices, accomplishments, and thoughts of the black community to always shine and be expressed. Be sure to check out some inspiring Black History Month poems below!
