When employees feel valued for their work, they are more engaged, perform better at their tasks, and are more productive.  Therefore, investing in showing employees how much you appreciate them is a great business decision.

Hosting a virtual employee appreciation event is an excellent way to thank your team for all of their hard work and commitment while motivating them to continue to bring their A-game. 

But it’s not always easy to come up with an event idea that everyone will love, primarily when the event is exclusively held online.   To help with this, we’ve put together a list of ideas that are sure to wow your team. All you have to do is keep reading.

Treat Your Employees to a Wellness Session

We live in a time where many people work long hours, deal with much stress daily, and do not prioritize their health. Furthermore, employees who regularly work remotely can feel disconnected from the company and their teammates. 

Integrating a virtual wellness session into your event’s schedule can help create a sense of togetherness while promoting physical and mental health.

Provide an Unforgettable Experience 

Experiences make for the best gifts because they result in memories that last a lifetime, so why not give your employees the chance to experience something completely new while attending your event? 

For example, you can give your guests the chance to experience the essence of one of the fascinating cities in the world: Paris! 

How to do this online? 

A Taste of Paris is a premium virtual experience hosted by Michael Green that includes a combination of multimedia, local foods, and French wine (as part of this experience. Guests can be sent a custom box of curated items that they will be able to enjoy during the virtual event). 

Attendees will become immersed in Paris’s rich history and culture while admiring iconic sights and learning more about authentic French wine and food.

This is just an idea of what’s possible to provide your employees access to an engaging experience that they will remember for a long time ahead.

Get Creative with the Entertainment You Choose 

Getting creative with the entertainment you choose will show employees that you’ve put extra thought and effort into planning a unique event (instead of just taking a cookie-cutter approach). 

Here are two outside-the-box entertainment ideas that will surprise guests in the best way possible. 

Host a Virtual Team Happy Hour

Throwing a Happy Hour is one of the most popular virtual employee appreciation event ideas, as it’s an activity that encourages positive interactions and allows team members to unwind. 

Typically scheduled for the end of the workday, happy hours allow employees to connect outside of their professional roles and have some fun. 

This is not to say that they should be used as an excuse to drink too much alcohol. If this is an idea, you are considering for your event, acknowledge that some of your guests may not drink and provide non-alcoholic alternatives.

Also, consider booking virtual mixology classes or wine tastings. They can provide a fresh approach to a regular Happy Hour and ensure guests stay engaged in your event while learning something new.
