With everything moving to the online sphere, it’s important to find new and creative ways to stay connected with your remote team. Virtual events are a fun way to boost morale, encourage positive company culture, and bond with your fellow coworkers!
We’ve partnered with Confetti to guide you step by step in planning your very own virtual event. Here's how:
Gather ideas from your team, and ask them what they think would be fun! Based on their answers, put together a monthly, quarterly, or yearly calendar of fun. Announce the calendar during an upcoming meeting and encourage new hires to sign up and participate.
Here are a few ideas and activities for training leadership skills and developing strong and effective teams:
Get the word out with custom-designed invites. Use them to capture the unique theme and feel of your event, while including important details like date, time, and Zoom info. Feel free to get creative - our team loves using Canva!
Now that you’ve sparked interest, send out a basic calendar invite to get a more accurate headcount. Include all video conferencing information so everyone can hop on the call easily when it’s time!
Send out a short & sweet message to get everyone hyped!
When all packages are expected to have been received, make sure participants double-check their mailboxes to ensure they have all the necessary materials on hand.
To avoid any pre-event chilliness, warm up with icebreakers to get the conversation flowing. These are light, fun, and silly questions designed to get to know your team members in a more personal way. You might be surprised when the quietest person in the office reveals secret plans for an elaborate heist.
We suggest using breakout rooms to divide the meeting into smaller groups, as well as initiating Zoom polls, to increase engagement and get everyone talking.
