Online office parties are meetings and events hosted on video conferencing platforms that are meant to celebrate company milestones, your employees’ dedication, holidays, or anything else. For example, you may host a Virtual Happy Hour on Employee Appreciation Day to treat your employees to something exquisite or host a Christmas Trivia Party for the holiday season. Virtual office parties are ideal for bringing remote and hybrid employees together despite the distance.
Virtual parties are a great way for your employees to engage in conversations outside of work. Remote and hybrid teams may not have much face-time and online parties provide a space for employees to gather, talk and party together from anywhere in the world. Online parties are a must for remote employees as they miss the traditional casual office chat and seasonal get-togethers with their peers. In other words, online parties help create happier and closer employees!
The best virtual office parties allow employees to be themselves and have fun without worrying about work. Some of the best ideas for virtual office parties are The Team Quest, Seasonal Wine Tasting, Drag Queen Bingo, and Project Avatar. If you’re planning a Halloween party, we recommend checking out our Virtual Escape Rooms and Murder Mysteries. And if you’re looking for some fun and unique online Christmas party ideas, take a look at our Cookie Decorating Masterclass, Apres Ski Cocktail Making Class, or our All I Want for Christmas event! You surely won’t be disappointed!
Celebrations don’t have to be complicated. Set a theme for the week and get everyone to dress up or host a happy hour where everyone can sip their favourite drinks while having fun chatting with their colleagues. Add a fun background to Zoom and you’re good to party!
If you’re opting for a fully-hosted event, you won’t have to worry about anything, simply send the invites at least two weeks before the event and share the link with everyone once the time comes. If you’re hosting a party on your own you have to decide on the budget, time allocated and party theme first. You may even plan the event with two or three colleagues to share the responsibilities. Once you’ve planned everything, send out the invitations and have a blast!
