Our Toronto recruiters have spoken to many organizations about what they are doing for the holidays this year. With traditional holiday parties not possible this year, we’ve heard a lot of creative ideas to spread holiday cheer by having a remote celebration.
At IQ PARTNERS, in addition to a virtual holiday party, we’re having a virtual holiday cookie bake along and a giving back challenge. There are lots of ways you can still celebrate with your colleagues. If you are still not sure what you are doing for your company, consider these remote holiday party ideas:
If your team is not really feeling the remote holiday party idea, you can use the funds earmarked for the party and donate them.
At IQ PARTNERS, we donated the unused funds of our canceled office party to support Daily Bread Food Bank via our client, CanadaHelps’ #HolidayPartyHeroes program. This is a new initiative launched by CanadaHelps that asks businesses across Canada to donate the unused cost of their annual holiday parties to charity and be recognized as #HolidayPartyHeroes. The idea was inspired by the Xmas Party Heroes campaign in the UK, which raised almost £1,000,000 within a week of being launched. If your company has unused holiday party funds this year, please consider donating the money to this worthy cause.
