We’ve always had processes in place that allow our entire team to work from home effectively when they need to, and we’re also always keen to offer flexibility around when and where our team completes their work.
However, for many people, this will be their first time working from home for an extended period, and it’s sometimes easy to feel a little laggy and disconnected (even in our world, where there’s more connective technology than ever before).
The truth is that nothing beats the power of face-to-face communication when it comes to building team camaraderie and friendships, however there are still some great ways you can engage your team and have fun in the process while working at home during COVID-19.
We’ve been having loads of online banter the last couple of weeks keeping the spirit of the office alive from our lounge rooms, and thought we’d share with you our ideas for keeping your team happy, healthy, motivated and engaged.
Let’s start this off with a bang! The Jaywing and Frank Digital teams were treated to a fun Thursday afternoon game of drag bingo with none other than Sydney’s most fabulous drag queen extraordinaire, Prada Clutch.
Conducted through online video chat, the hilarious Prada hosted several games of bingo for us that involved prizes like UberEats and Dan Murphys vouchers! It was a fantastic way to blow off some steam after a busy week (and see what dress-ups the team had hidden away in their wardrobes!)
