Mail a gift: It can be small and doesn’t have to be expensive, but a small gift can have a big impact on how an employee feels. Maybe a Moscow Mule kit or maybe some super fun holiday socks. Be creative and find a way to put a smile on their faces.
Bring in entertainment: The pandemic has been raging for months now and there are those who specialize in entertaining and running fun team building workshops on the virtual platform. At Knuckleball Comedy, that is what we do best. Learn more about the ways we work with businesses HERE. Don’t be weary of spending a few bucks to have a professional come in to entertain, your employees will thank you for it. *This combined with a mailed gift would really hit the nail on the head.
Give out awards: If you have ever seen Michael Scott perform at the Dundies, you know an awards banquet can be the most memorable experience a company can ever have. Feel free to host yourself or hire a professional like the ones we have at Knuckleball Comedy.
Play games: You can find heaps of trivia or ice breaker type games all over the place. Do your research though and make sure to try out the games yourself first before putting it all on the line at the event itself.
Scavenger Hunt: Send your employees on a wild goose chase. Ask them to find things around their house, find things online and find their fellow peers that meet certain categories (ie. Find the person on the team who speaks fluent Portuguese). Everyone learns more about each other while laughing and having a good time.
There are many options to choose from but remember, it can be done. It just takes a little creativity!
