What is a Virtual Christmas Party?

The term Virtual Christmas Party first started appearing in mainstream media in 2020 along with the COVID-19 pandemic. It was a way to boost morale and get the whole team together in a time where we couldn’t see each other in person. However, now that the world has opened back up, some things have stayed the same – include remote or hybrid working! Because of this, Virtual Christmas Parties are back and better than ever, allowing the whole team to get together and celebrate all of their success across the year!

Why Should I Have a Virtual Christmas Party?

1. Get the whole team together!

If there’s one thing a Virtual Christmas Party is good for, it’s getting the whole team together! With lots of companies employing remote or hybrid workings, for a lot of people there isn’t as much chance as there used to be to get the whole team together, especially if they’re dotted around in different areas! With a Virtual Experience, you can make sure that the whole group are able to socialise and get together for a Festive Event without anyone being left out!

2. Increase Engagement

With team members located in different areas and not getting as much chance to connect, this can lead to low engagement. As a team leader, it’s essential that you make sure your team are feeling engaged and their morale is high. What better way to achieve this than by getting everyone together for some Virtual Cocktail Making or a Virtual Murder Mystery! Not only does this allow your team to get to know each other a bit better, but it helps to avoid disengagement that some remote workers may feel!

3. Flexibility

One of the best things about Virtual Experiences is their flexibility! Your team can join no matter where in the world they are, and a lot of the time can even involve sending equipment to your house! All you need to do is log into the online session and everything else is done for you! Additionally, with an online experience, there’s no travel involved, which opens up more times and dates that everyone can do!

4. Budget Friendly

Another huge benefit of a Virtual Christmas Party is they are seriously budget-friendly! Without the addition of venue hire, travel and more, you can treat your team to a Christmas Experience within a smaller budget! This means that no matter what your budget, you can give your team the festive experience that they deserve!

5. Morale Booster

As we said before, when a lot of people are working from home, morale can start to decrease a bit as employees are often working alone. What better way to bring everyone together as a team and boost morale than with a Virtual Christmas Party! At the end of the year, it’s important to get everyone together and celebrate all of their individual and shared success throughout the year! Your team’s mental health and workplace satisfaction is just as important as the work they produce!
