Many of us have adapted to a world with remote team members and back-to-back Zoom calls with customers spread across the country, which certainly has benefits. Still, one drawback is the difficulty of getting together in person. Whether it be for team-building or customer appreciation, the days of reserving the local restaurant for a holiday party may not work as effectively as they did in the past.
As we approach the holidays and the thoughts of "what should I do for my employees" and "what should I do for my customers"” weigh on our minds, I thought I’d share some ideas that may spark some creative approaches to celebrating the season with those near and far!
Some of these ideas have associated costs, while others are free. So, whether your budget is big, small, or nonexistent, you can still put on a creative and memorable event. Here are some of our favorites.
