It’s already a top priority to keep your team and clients engaged with your business. The current state of economic and social affairs can definitely add to the strain of remaining relevant. How are you thinking outside the box to keep your people engaged during this time?
Here are 3 ways to continue connecting with your community:
Happy hours have always been a great way to connect outside of work. With bars and restaurants closing across the nation, this may limit your availability for in-person communications and events. Setup a Zoom call and invite your employees to sit with one another from the comfort of their home offices. You can host an icebreaker, cover the state of the company, or – if your team is small enough – just catch up. Encouraging engagement through a virtual happy hour can help you reset and recharge your team.
If you’re losing opportunities for face-to-face meetings due to trade show cancellations or business closures, lean into digital opportunities. Your clients and consumers are likely feeling the same weight of missing these big events, so making some time to meet with them virtually will have a great impact and strengthen the relationship. Maintain a focused agenda on sharing opportunities to work together as the future allows.
You’re bogged down at home but looking for a way to let them know you’re still there for them. While essential services are still up and running, leverage this as an opportunity to thank your clients. Whether its a tangible gift or a simple digital message, we could all use a little extra love as we navigate a new normal.
These are just a few of the ways we’re connecting at Cloud. What is your organization doing to keep your people engaged?
