Hosting an Epic Virtual Holiday Party

When your team is in a hybrid or remote working situation, holiday party planning takes on even more challenges than usual. You can realize the benefits of throwing engaging get-togethers during the holiday season and really want to celebrate the hard work of your employees, but it’s no longer as simple as scheduling caterers. How do you plan a fun event for your employees when some are hoping to party in person, while others are staying home and not comfortable being in a group setting?

The plain truth is, you can’t make everyone happy. But it is possible to plan an event where everyone can be included in the fun no matter where they are located or what their vaccination status is. Virtual holiday parties may be the way to go.

What’s great about virtual holiday parties is they are easy to plan, accessible, and affordable.

As with all great photo booths, props are a must. Send your employees each an individual prop to wear to the party. This can be anything from an Elf’s hat, to reindeer antlers, red or green boas or garland, angel wings, presents, ugly sweaters, or even hats, mittens and scarves.
