Celebrate the holidays virtually, with Remote Team Wellness, 28Muses & more.
November, 15th, 2021, United States – This has been a tough year for all businesses, and with a record 4.3 million Americans quitting their job in August 2021 alone, companies need to do more to entice employees to stay than ever before. A recent report from Indeed found that employee burnout is exploding with “52% of all workers are feeling burned out” and a holiday party can be a great way to come together and celebrate your team’s accomplishments in 2021. But how can we do so safely during the COVID pandemic? According to research from Quantum Workplace “as of June 2021, 30 percent of employees considered themselves hybrid employees and 35 percent of employees reported working remotely”. Because of that, many companies across the country are turning to virtual holiday parties as a way to bring their team together, have fun celebrating, whilst staying safe and allowing employees to enjoy from the comfort of their home. Below are seven of the most innovative virtual corporate event companies offering unique virtual holiday party ideas for teams in 2021.
