The world has gone a little topsy turvy, and we are all acutely aware of the state of things outside our front door. Your employees are currently working from home to keep your business going, and you are all trying to keep up morale – and it’s not going well.
So, rather than focus on all the panic and fright in the world, why not think about the ways that you can get your business moving and employees feeling motivated once more? There will be a day the lockdowns are lifted, and quarantine is over, and that day needs to be met with something fun. Your staff are counting on you to still be there for them when this pandemic is over. With that in mind, you should take a look at our list of fun ways you can all enjoy spending time together once life goes back to normal.
- Host A Sports Day
The idealists in all of us are hopeful of summer back to normal. Walks on the beach, pub gardens and BBQs are just a part of it. Every business should celebrate resuming regular activity with a fun day, and that can include a company sports day! Check out the personalized boards at Cornholeworldwide.com and brand a corn hole board with your business brand and set up a range of mini sports to enjoy. A sports day is a great way to get the whole office laughing and relaxed in each other’s company once more.
- A Pot-Luck Picnic
When the sun is shining, it’s an excellent idea to kick off the “back to work” feeling with something delicious, and that means food! Ask everyone to bring in a dish they cook (yes, cook) and have an outdoor picnic. If you don’t have an outdoor space by your office, head to the nearest park and bring blankets for all. Make sure people know that they don’t have to wear work clothes: it wouldn’t be the most comfortable for all.
- Go For A Walk
Some business activities don’t need to be on site. You could get everyone together and arrange a hike! There are always challenges that can be done for charity, and it’s a great way to raise morale, get everyone moving and change the scenery. You’ve all been cooped up at home; a pleasant walk somewhere countrified is always going to add a little wind to your sails!
- Dinner & Drinks
The very first day that you arrange to get back to the office is going to be a little disjointed. People won’t have seen each other for months on end, so a celebration is needed! Get the gang together and go for a meal (on the company, of course) and make sure to go somewhere with round tables so you can all see each other. Discuss how you are all feeling about the months that have just passed and let everyone air out their relief that it’s all over!
You need to get your staff happy – and now you know how to do it.
