3 Reasons To Host A Virtual Christmas Party
Has your Christmas party been canceled this festive season? The good news is, you don’t have to miss out on the celebrations! After another difficult year, Christmas may end up looking a bit different, but that doesn’t mean you should skip the staff festivities. If anything, employees need a rewarding reason to come together more than ever – to know that they’re valued, to remain motivated, and to receive thanks for adapting to a hybrid workforce.
Virtual Christmas parties are fun online events that can be held over video conferencing platforms. It’s a great opportunity to celebrate successes together with a chance for remote employees to reconnect and engage with their co-workers and enjoy the very best in virtual fun-filled entertainment. Here are 3 reasons to host an online Christmas party this year:
Understandably, budgets are tight. It’s been a tough and challenging few years for a lot of companies since the start of the pandemic. However, virtual Christmas parties can be a lot more cost-effective than in-person events. Without the need to hire a static venue, and without the cost of food and beverage, you can still hold an amazing, fun experience to say thank you to your teams for a fraction of the cost.
With the constantly changing regulations and advice, it’s difficult to know what will be permitted or possible this Christmas. By hosting a virtual Christmas event, you can ensure the safety of staff and teams, whilst still allowing them to switch off, relax and take part in a fun social group experience where the only face-mask required could be an oversized pair of comedy glasses. Everyone wants an end-of-year event they’re going to remember, which can be done safely!
Fun & Laughter
Most importantly, you want your Christmas event to be the highlight of the year. By the end of the year, we’re all a little worn out, so you want your online event to be an opportunity for people to relax and enjoy. Fun and laughter should therefore be the key ingredients of an online Christmas party, with upbeat, interactive, and engaging activities and entertainment. Add some spice and festive fun to your online Christmas event:
- Secret Santa
- Virtual comedy show
- Cocktail making
- Virtual magician
These are some of our favourite Christmas party activity ideas that can be easily implemented into your online event whilst being interactive and fun!
