During the current pandemic situation, most of the companies cannot conduct their traditional get-togethers where the team gathers around to welcome new members and get involved in fun activities. Such events work as great team-building exercises for the teams. It improves human interaction and allows team members to know their colleagues better. Since the real team gatherings are on hold, the corporate event management teams need to look for alternate ideas to create team interactions and fun activities. Here are some fresh virtual event ideas that can do great in online team meetings.
Virtual conferences can be conducted for the team members that share similar ideas. The event management team can send invitations to attend or take part in the conferences. It is a unique approach for teams that are looking for productive events to help the teams learn about new technology and opportunities in the field. The management can also offer incentives to the members who attend and present at the conference to encourage more people for informative group sessions.
Online workshops can also be an encouraging platform for team members to learn new things from professionals. A usual workshop can last from an hour to a three-hour session. The workshops can include quizzes, presentations, and introducing new tools to the team members with a session provided by the tool provider. Workshop sessions are a great way to share knowledge with new members and also engage them in active learning sessions that are live and fun.
Work from home for the employees should not stop them from enjoying some time together, listening to good music, or a hilarious stand-up comedy session. There are event management agencies today that are providing online events with different artists. These sessions take place on online video conferences where the artist performs live while being connected to the team through a video call. There are some other entertainment options like scavenger hunts, live stream theatre performances, and games like bingo where everyone can participate.
Health and wellbeings sessions
During the present work from home routine, we may forget to take care of our health. It is important that the entire team is taking care of their physical and mental wellbeing. The management can conduct wellbeing sessions to check on the stress and anxiety problems that the team may feel while being isolated at their homes.
