Employee Treats – Not Tricks! Ideas For Celebrating Halloween 2022

What is Halloween really about? The candy? The costumes? No!

Halloween is about people. It is the only holiday where we open our doors to strangers. The only celebration that does not remain confined to living rooms or backyards. Instead, it pours out onto the streets – wild and egalitarian.

Make this Halloween about your people – your team. Celebrating holidays as a team helps build relationships and trust between employees. It’s also an opportunity for your team to bond while having a great time.

Even if you may not be in the office, you can still get your team into the frightfully spooky Halloween spirit.

Treat Your Employees to Some Fun! No Tricks Found Here.

Check out these fun Halloween-themed activities that your team is sure to enjoy! Pumpkins, candy, and more. What’s not to love?

1. Pumpkin Carving

A pumpkin carving contest is a great way to bring your employees together for some face-to-face engagement, connection, and conversation. Participants will have to be creative, though. Winning the award for the spookiest pumpkin isn’t easy. And if you can’t meet face-to-face, send your team a pumpkin carving kit and do it virtually!

Are you wondering what to do with the pumpkin seeds after carving? Fret not; we’ve got you covered. Provide each team member with a recipe card for roasted pumpkin seeds so they can make a wonderful, seasonal treat. Click here for ours!

2. Halloween Treats!

Halloween isn’t Halloween without the candy. After all, it’s a guilt-free excuse to indulge in your favorite sugar-filled delights.

Have team members send Halloween goodie bags with candy to a random, assigned co-worker. Nothing gets the juices flowing like receiving Halloween candy apples in the mail. It’s also a great way to connect and strengthen relationships.

3. Virtual Murder Mystery

Who doesn’t love a good (virtual) murder mystery? The suspense of the crime. The twists in the story. The thrill of catching the suspect. Sign me up!

Play this Halloween game online to meet some of the most eccentric and intriguing personalities you’ve ever seen. Motives will emerge, clues will be unearthed, and — a murder will take place. And that’s when the real fun begins. You will have the opportunity to question suspects and solve the crime. So, get your detective hats on. You’ll need them.

You can even choose between a customized, corporate murder mystery or a Halloween-themed one. And if you’re looking for an in person murder mystery, we have that too! There is something for every team.

4. Around the (Virtual) Campfire

Nothing builds a team like an experience around the (virtual) campfire.

You’ll enjoy live music, interactive tales, unique quizzes, and entertaining performances. Each member also gets a s’mores kit that includes a portioned bar of the best couverture chocolate, four vanilla-bean marshmallows, and eight freshly baked honey vanilla graham crackers.

It’s a recipe for a truly memorable experience, whether you’re outside or indoors. Prepare to create some unforgettable Halloween memories with your team.

5. Halloween Happy Hour – Team Mixology

How Retro 80s Video Games Can Build Modern Teams

Have we found the newest, hottest team building game in the USA? This week we brought together our facilitators, event team, and sales team and we learned and played a new collaborative team building game called Synergyk. This game was created in Barcelona Spain by a team of team building experts and boy was it fun. To those of us that lived in the ‘80s, it brought back memories of the game Simon and other early video games. It was fun, competitive, collaborative, and challenging. The game boxes that were created were impressive, the ai robot was fun and funny, the music was appropriate, and the overall event is unique to anything we’ve ever seen or played.
