Celebrating Customer Support Day is a great way to show your support team members how much you appreciate their hard work and dedication. However, with remote work becoming increasingly common, planning celebrations that include everyone can be a challenge. Explore solid tips for connecting with your remote team members.
One of the easiest ways to include remote team members is to plan virtual celebrations. This can include things like video calls, virtual team lunches or happy hours, online games or contests, and more. By leveraging technology, you can bring your team members together to celebrate, no matter where they are located.
Virtual celebrations can be especially effective in building team morale and engagement, as they provide an opportunity for team members to interact and connect with each other on a more personal level. Some virtual celebration ideas include:
Themed Video Calls
Plan a video call with a fun theme, such as a costume party, trivia night, or talent show. This can be a great way to bring your team members together in a fun and relaxed environment.
Virtual Team Lunches or Happy Hours
Send your remote team members a meal or snack voucher, and plan a virtual lunch or happy hour where everyone can eat and chat together.
Online Games or Contests
Organize an online game or contest that everyone can participate in, such as a virtual scavenger hunt or a photo competition. We love Kahoot for virtual trivia!
If you’re looking for a more personal way to observe this important day with your remote team members, consider sending a sentimental (and mostly free) gift. This not only shows your appreciation for their hard work, but also shows that you care about them as individuals. Some sentimental gift ideas include:
- Handwritten Notes or Cards: Send each of your remote team members a handwritten note or card expressing your appreciation for their hard work and dedication.
- Personalized Gift Baskets: Put together a customized gift basket for each team member, filled with their favorite snacks, drinks, and other treats.
- Custom-made artwork: Hire a local artist to create a custom-made piece of artwork that reflects your team’s values and achievements.
Leveraging Customer Support Day to engage your remote team members can be a challenge, but with some careful planning and creative thinking, it’s possible to create a meaningful and inclusive celebration that recognizes the hard work and dedication of your support team members.
