Including remote workers takes creativity

In order to make a holiday event inclusive for everyone, companies can come up with ways to celebrate and have fun together.

  • Turning on the camera could be made mandatory.
  • Come prepared with conversation starters like, "What's your plan for the holiday?"
  • An instant messaging platform like Slack can be used for people to discuss their interests outside work.
  • Companies can give a budget to employees who live in the same location to throw their own local holiday party.
  • Those who don't have other colleagues close can create their own party open to anyone working remotely. They can unite around the idea of remote work.
