Don’t let the pandemic spoil the festive spirit at your organization this year. Instead, take it online. When planned right, online events can be a fantastic opportunity to decompress, bond, and have fun. Here are some ideas to try.
Host A Virtual Dandiya or Dance Event
Live stream or broadcast a pre-recorded groovy video collage for everyone to watch together.
Have A Golu Doll Display Live
Give each contestant a time slot and a unique video call link that their colleagues can log into. Viewers can cast votes for the best display too.
Hold Rangoli Making Contests
Have inter-department or even regional face-offs, with photo entries hosted in a virtual gallery.
Have Healthy Treat Cooking Classes
Recipes can be emailed beforehand so participants can cook along; or it could be hosted as demos with recipes shared after.
Home Deliver Festive Surprises
Try home-delivering sweets, traditional foods, or even a care package to keep employees COVID-safe around the festivals.
Send Happy Health Reminders!
Plan positive, encouraging emails with photos, interviews, or stories of employees who have turned their health and lives around during the pandemic.
Shared experiences like festivals can do a world of good for anyone feeling lonely or isolated by the pandemic. So this effort is absolutely worthwhile. Here’s to planning a safe and happy festive season!
