Virtual Holiday Ideas For You & Your Team


We understand that 2020 has not been a walk in the park so we thought it would be nice to help you close out the year on a positive note with the resources that most helped you get through these tough times, your employees! We put our heads together, did some research and of course, asked our valued clients and came up with a list of ideas on how you can promote holiday cheer, demonstrate employee appreciation, and show a continued commitment to employee engagement.


Virtual Shoutouts

Take a moment this holiday season to let your people know how much you appreciate them by using virtual shoutouts:


Best Wishes Holiday Shoutouts to Staff and Clients celebrating all festive holidays

o For example, a religiously inclusive email blast to all staff wishing them a “Merry Christmas”, “Happy Hanukkah”, “Happy Kwanzaa” and “Happy Las Posadas” on appropriate days throughout the holiday season demonstrates appreciation for cultural diversity within your Company.


Virtual Shoutouts for Individual Employee and Team 2020 Accomplishments

o A team email or virtual meeting can be a great place to remind your employees of all 2020 team achievements and give individual shoutouts.


Virtual Charity Team Building Activities

The holiday season is a great time to exercise corporate social responsibility and show your charitable side by doing one of these virtual charity team building activities:


Virtual Food Drive/Fundraising Webpage

o Use your Company website, or a pre-existing charity’s webpage to virtually collect money instead of physical food items to be donated to a local Food Bank.

o Charities in the GTA with fundraising pages include: Second Harvest, Daily Bread, North York Harvest Food Bank
