1. A dinner on the company
Encourage your remote employees to take a special someone out and have a holiday meal on the company. An enjoyable meal on the company will associate merriment with work and create a positive impression. But, be sure to put together specific limitations so there are no surprises afterwards!
2. A care package
Everyone loves packages and opening things! The holidays are very much about gifts and what better way to show the company is thinking about its remote employees than through a package full of holiday goodies?
3. Virtual 'face-time'
Organize an activity that can be played remotely via video conferencing. The key here is that everybody gets to see each other and wish each other happy holidays. A game is a fun way to incentivize participation - maybe it's trivia or charades or Pictionary? Or maybe an ugly sweater contest? Remote workers could submit pictures or you could vote live during the videoconference session.
4. Mini, Semi-Local Parties
If there are clusters of individuals in major cities, it is easy enough to organize dinners or happy hours for them. You simply need to take the time to make it official & organized so people feel that this is just as special as the other holiday parties.
Whether you're trying to develop those strong, loyal relationships or encouraging team bonding, these ideas will help spread holiday cheer throughout your whole organization!
