If you can believe it, tomorrow will be full-blown October. For many employees working from home, grinding day after day without seeing their coworkers, it feels like time is simultaneously flying and standing still.
That feeling of monotony and disconnection can really take its toll on a team. So, you've got to do something. Something fun. Something different. Something together, even while we're physically apart. But how?
Many companies have already implemented policies, communications, and contingencies for how they will operate during the current public health issue of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Many of our clients are looking for more than just another repetitive happy hour. They want their company events to truly improve company culture, to drive connections, and improve working relationships in the office.
One key area for those improvements is with regard to employee recognition. If you're looking for help infusing recognition into your company events, you'll want to start with these simple questions.
Think about a time when you really nailed it. That feeling when you reached a milestone. That moment when you hit your goal. It feels good, right? It feels even better when someone else notices. So, how do you amplify the positive feeling so your employees feel recognized?
Your company event strategy can have a huge impact on the culture of your organization. So, rather than planning events last minute, it's important to consider what you really want to gain from the events, and how you want your company to grow.
We have some key tips on how to use events to create greater recognition, connection, balance, inclusivity, and fun.
Sports, at the end of the day, should be fun--even in the professional ranks. After all, they do play “games” every night, don’t they? The difference is their games often come within a high pressure environment where winning is the primary goal. There’s not one blueprint for how to win.
