Organize Zoom mixers

While some individuals may love the self-sufficient nature of working from home and actually prefer being removed from all of the other non-work-related communication and activities of an office, it’s important to remember that many employees may have joined the company specifically for the workplace culture. Working remotely can mean losing touch with that culture, even though it could have been an important part of employees’ happiness at their job. Consider organizing virtual mixers for employees who want the social aspect of the office. There could even be regular mixers in place, like virtual Friday happy hours every week. This could be extremely beneficial to single individuals or anyone living alone and working from home currently.
