Building better connections through PLAY.

Why January is a Perfect Time for a Virtual Company Event

Posted by Natalie Simmons on Dec 2, 2020 10:12:00 AM

And just like that, it's already December. There are only a few weeks left in 2020 (good riddance, honestly), and only so many workdays before the holidays are upon us. But if you haven't had the time or bandwidth to get a holiday party scheduled, don't panic, and definitely don't feel bad!

But definitely DO consider January, and kicking off the new year with a bang!

Many of our customers are looking ahead to January 2021, seeing it as a fresh start and an opportunity to set the tone for the team. They're looking forward to connecting and building stronger relationships with coworkers, collaborating on new ideas together, and getting some positive energy and momentum. 

Here are just some of the virtual programs we recommend for January, to set you up for a successful year.

Company Virtual Retreat or Conference

Whether a full day or multiple days, a virtual retreat is the perfect way to start the year off right! Taking this time in January will ensure that your team has the chance to focus their energy and ideas on how to drive toward your organization's mission. 

But it's not just about getting down to business. It's also a chance to enjoy some fun, interactive virtual games and activities that will make the team smile, laugh, and enjoy each other. Camaraderie... remember what that's like? Our team will work with you to understand your goals and customize the perfect schedule. Get ready for an energizing experience that will give your team the momentum you need to hit your 2021 goals!

2021 Kickoff Party

So, you didn't have time to plan the annual company holiday party. But we all know how busy you've been and that your organization's entire work style has shifted since the pandemic hit in March. We know it's been really hard to organize people and budgets and dates while working remotely. But honestly, that's why it's even more important to bring the team together for a fun, re-energizing celebration. 

A 2021 Kickoff Party is a great way to reflect on your team's persistence and resilience through a tough year. And since you made it this far, it's time to have a little fun together. A virtual kickoff party can have any number of engaging and interactive activities—virtual trivia, scavenger hunts, whodunnit mystery games, and more! Trust us, we put on a FUN, ENGAGING fiesta, far better than just another Zoom happy hour (blech! can those go away when the clock strikes midnight?). Your team worked hard under some really tough circumstances, so we owe it to them to create an experience and make some FUN memories!

Monthly Events for Company Fun 

Many of our customers have already decided to keep their offices closed well into 2021. While working remotely can be challenging and create a sense of isolation and detachment for many employees, those feelings are NOT inevitable. If you want to keep your company culture and your team's relationships intact and strong, you just need a good plan. 

We've been working with clients to deliver a wide variety of smaller scale monthly events that help create moments of fun interaction and connection for their teams. We can create a year-long event calendar based on your budget and goals, with everything from interactive mixology classes, paint and sip nights, and magic shows to company game nights and more. And the great news is that if you plan it now, you won't even have to worry about it next year!

Interested in starting January 2021 on the right foot? Reach out to us right now and we'll get started building something memorable, fun, and amazing for your whole team to enjoy!
