Employee Appreciation: Social Distance Options

11:15 AM

Everyone has been handed many ups and downs this past year. Companies are navigating uncertain waters, people are working from home while teaching their kids. Saying it hasn’t been an easy ride is an understatement. 

That’s why we need employee appreciation efforts more than ever. 

Now Pre-2020, an employee appreciation event looked very different. It might have looked like a large carnival in a local park, or a bbq in the parking lot, or even a cocktail hour out at a rooftop restaurant. 

So reimagining what an employee appreciation effort looks like has been one of our main tasks. Keeping social distancing in mind and extra care when it comes to service, we have created a few different options. 

Hot BBQ to Boxed Lunches

Now it’s not as great as a hot burger right off the grill, but it is delicious. We have been delivering boxed lunches to offices for their employees, and employees come down in shifts to pick theirs up. It’s a small gesture that goes a long way. 

Live Events to Virtual 

Nothing is as amazing as a live event, but under the circumstances, virtual is just as good. We have all types of virtual events that can be used as team building or happy hours. Virtual trivia, bingo, clue, and escape the room are just some of our favorite options. 

Restaurant Events to Giveaways

Instead of your normal cocktail hour or company retreat, many are opting for branded gifts instead. Send your employees who are working from home a nice cocktail shaker kit. Or maybe a warm blanket with your logo embroidered and a bottle of wine for the holidays.
