Employee Appreciation Day Ideas and Giveaway
Did you know there is a day dedicated to celebrating employees? Employee Appreciation Day is a national holiday that takes place the first Friday of March. It is a day to reward your team for their hard work. With day-to-day tasks it is easy to forget to show employees how much they are appreciated. This is a great opportunity to tell your team their work is appreciated through a special gift, verbal recognition, or a unique virtual experience.
Every single employee contributes to company culture, and having a positive company culture is crucial for a healthy workplace. At Positive Adventures we are a team that recognizes the importance of each and every employee. We utilize adventurous experiences and team activities to educate and create platforms for personal and professional growth. With happy employees, businesses see more productive teams and retain talent.
We are dedicated to our employees and to yours. Here are some ideas to celebrate Employee Appreciation Day:
1. Gift Card to a local Coffee Shop
2. Give out fun awards for non-work related contributions. Example: “Best Slack Reactions” or “Biggest Smile on Zoom Champion.”
3. Plan a fun Virtual Experience during work hours that the entire team can enjoy
4. Customized care packages
5. Handwritten Thank You notes
POSITIVE ADVENTURES EMPLOYEE APPRECIATION DAY GIVEAWAY
In honor of Employee Appreciation Day we are Giving away a Virtual Program/Experience! The Giveaway winner gets to choose from one of the following 4 Virtual Experiences for their team:
1. Virtual Escape Room
This team-building program is a classic take on the fun, exciting, and challenging Escape Room phenomenon. Using Zoom breakout rooms your group will be divided into teams. Each team will be tasked with unlocking challenges from clues in the room and the timer is on to escape! The game is queued up for each player using a smartphone or tablet. Our Emcee will brief all participants at the start and pop into each breakout room, as needed, to offer up clues and encouragement. To conclude the program we bring all participants back into the Zoom meeting to debrief and announce the winners!
2. World Explorer Challenge
Take your team on an adventure around the world, while putting your teamwork, collaboration and creativity to the test! Using our award-winning app, players will unlock a series of challenges while exploring well-known landmarks. As teams complete fun tasks and challenges they’ll earn Travel Credits to make it to their next destination. The team with the most Travel Credits at the end will be crowned the winners!
3. Virtual Scavenger Hunt
This at-home twist on a classic team building activity requires a collaborative effort and lots of energy! Our Virtual Scavenger Hunt is an exciting and active way for your group to focus on their problem solving and time management abilities. Teams will use their decision-making skills to complete brain benders and hilarious at-home challenges while racing against the clock.
4. Team Quiz
This social challenge is designed to replace that after-work social such as a team happy hour. This virtual Trivia Night enables teams to connect, have some fun and get competitive. Via video conferencing software and one of our event facilitators, you’ll be up against your colleagues to see who can score the highest points. With plenty of laughs, this challenge creates that feeling of unity without the need to actually be together.
