Host a Virtual Celebration
Even if your team has yet to return to the office, there are numerous inventive ways to celebrate remotely. Organize a virtual party with music, games, and shout-outs to your employees. For added flair, consider choosing a theme and coordinating Zoom backgrounds for participants. You may also use the Zoom backgrounds provided by Great Place To Work.
Acknowledge Your Team
Seize this day as an opportunity to recognize employees throughout your organization for their contributions to creating a remarkable workplace.
