Virtual staff events provide an uplifting experience to boost morale
by Elaine Dellar, Managing Director
We were delighted to end 2020 with the on-air delivery of two memorable staff events for two new clients.
The first was the annual All Staff Event for the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman. Themed ‘Staying Connected’, the full day event included keynote presentations, guest speakers, interactive panel discussions, staff networking, awards presentations and an end of year Quiz. A range of market place exhibitions and on demand videos/sessions were also available for delegates to engage with throughout the day.
The second was the annual Christmas Party for the dnata Travel Group – attended by their staff from across the Middle East, Europe and the UK. With comedy, magic, music, networking and prizes galore, it was tremendous fun to deliver a Xmas Party in a virtual format.
Both events made the end of 2020 particularly special for the positive impact they had on the staff attending these events, who had endured a difficult year like no other. From ‘The whole day was magnificent. What an uplifting experience’ to ‘This is awesome…don’t want it to finish’, the hundreds of positive messages posted throughout the two events were very uplifting for everyone involved in making them happen, and for us too.
I can’t wait to get back to delivering in-person events, but my New Year message is not to underestimate the power or value of online events for staff engagement. Embrace the opportunity, be bold and brave with your virtual ambitions and keep your teams motivated as we continue to navigate our way through and out the other side of this pandemic.
A Happy New Year to all of our clients, our colleagues and our friends throughout the globe.
