Virtual Happy Hours
The company I work for does not have a full-time HR representative, so I have been tasked with maintaining some of the employee relations. I have sent out a series of snail main letters and hosted 2 virtual happy hours…the first was based on Two Truths and a Lie followed by the second featuring staff baby photos…anyone had a successful happy hour that wasn’t trivia-based, like Pictionary or a talent show, that they want to share?
(As daycare openings and capacity rules are playing a role as to our office opening fully, I feel there will be a few more happy hours to plan, and I don’t want them to become monotonous. )
Thanks for any and all suggestions for future events and/or ideas to keep the comradery going!
I should add that we have been utilizing Zoom for calls, and when we have done virtual happy hours featuring trivia we have utilized Kahoot.

We have had successful Zoom happy hours discussing of all things…adult beverages, and sharing recipes, tips, and we also have a Book Club with the title Wine Not? Sometimes it is simply nice to chat and share feelings…we all have a lot of those going on right now!
@VickiCisneros Thanks for the topic discussion ideas!
We did Pictionary recently via the whiteboard on zoom, and it went over very well!

I attended a BINGO event online and it was fun. Our church youth group did cardines where the family gets in their car (maybe close to your headquarters) and it’s sardines but in a car!
Supporting your team is a tougher challenge when you have to do so remotely. there were some suggestions in this recent article i read: https://lnkd.in/eEAQCa2
- SNACK BOXES - send your teams some nurturing snacks to let them know they’re appreciated; My company (Canteen) actually sends them out to local business and employee homes so if you want to support a local business I’d be happy to chat (Karissa Feller ;214-470-7662)
- Paid subscription to a meditation app (Headspace or Insight Timer are both great!)
- Monthly credits to ClassPass, BeachBody or other fitness apps that can be used at home
