Your Guide to Virtual Events If you want to end the year on a good note, then a virtual team building event could be just what you and your co-workers need. Stuck on what to do for your office Christmas party this year? Well, why not look into virtual team building events? Your team will be entertained, and you’ll all be able to take part from the safety and comfort of your desks!

Christmas looks a little different this year

At the start of the year, no one knew that we were facing a pandemic that would totally change how we live, work, and socialise. As 2020 draws to a close, we’re all dealing with the effects of COVID-19. This year, the festive season looks to be far more subdued that it was last year, with large scale gatherings off the table and pubs and restaurants in many areas having to close. That, of course, means that for the time being, the annual office Christmas party has ceased to exist.

Why is a Christmas party important?

In the grand scheme of things, it’s all too easy to dismiss a workplace Christmas party as something trivial. However, it’s actually really important. It’s a great chance for people to let their hair down and relax as the year comes to a close, and it’s a fantastic opportunity for a team leader to show their colleagues how much they really mean to them. A great Christmas party can boost morale, improve office relationships, and help to re-energise a team going into the new year.

Virtual events

Now that meeting up and having fun in person is a little more challenging, we have all had to get a little creative when it comes to staff Christmas parties in 2020. That’s where remote team building comes in. If you work with a leading team building specialist such as Zing Events, you will be able to take your pick from a wide range of fun activities. Considering that all that’s needed to take part is an internet connection, it’s easy to see why virtual team building has become such a hit.

Make it a special occasion

If you want to make your virtual team building event that little bit more special, think of things that you could send to your co-workers to make use of on the day. You could gift them some hampers, so that they have something nice to eat and drink while they’re taking part. Or maybe you could organise a Secret Santa, and have everyone open their gifts during the event. Just because you’re all apart, doesn’t meant that you can’t enjoy some festive fun.

Just have fun!

Last but not least, don’t make it all about work. This year has been so hard for businesses in a multitude of sectors, and people will have faced a great deal of stress and uncertainty while trying to give their all in their roles. So just enjoy all that the event has to offer, and take this as an opportunity to catch up and relax in each other’s company.
