Working from home comes with many challenges, and it is essential to celebrate your success, no matter how small it may seem. Celebrating success is important as it motivates you and promotes a sense of accomplishment. Acknowledging good work can help managers improve the loyalty and productivity of their teams. Virtual celebrations can be a bit complicated, but they aren’t impossible. Here are a few ways to celebrate success when working from home.
Create a Dedicated Kudos Channel
Celebrating success while working from home requires extra effort. Consider creating a unique channel dedicated to celebrating success. The channel should only be used for special communications.
Create a public Teams channel to post special ‘shoutouts’ every month or after notable accomplishments. Consider creating a team to help you post and review them.
If you have trouble creating such a channel, consider scheduling weekly remote get-togethers. Anyone who joins can show appreciation for different things and celebrate the successes of colleagues. The goal is to ensure that every member of the team is involved in the success. This way, everyone feels like they have a voice.
Consider sending some flowers and a thank you note to your team. Everyone loves flowers and there are options for everyone. From sunflowers to carnations and roses, you should easily find something for your team. They improve employees’ moods, promote productivity, and make people happy. According to the team at Bouqs.com, your celebration isn’t complete without a few flowers.
Send Some Candy, Chocolate, or Lunch
Although words are great, they aren’t as sweet as candy or chocolates. Consider sending your employees some as a token of appreciation. Even the most minor win can be magnified with some whiskey-flavored gummy bears.
Buying lunch for every member of the team may be a great idea as well. Just because your team is scattered across the world doesn’t mean you can’t have lunch together. With meal delivery services like DoorDash and Uber Eats, the delivery of meals is simplified. It doesn’t take much effort or coordination to deliver yummy food.
Throw an Online Party
Working from home doesn’t mean you can’t throw a party. Everyone loves a good party, especially after a success. Whether you have just completed an important trade show or a successful sales month, your team will love a good online party. It encourages the team to relax, bond, and create memories.
Get everyone online, put some party music, and start the party. You can play fun games, share stories, and get interactive ideas from others. The goal is to have fun and create new memories.
The gift of a wonderful experience is something that remote workers will remember forever. Fun experiences are great perks. They improve morale and make everyone feel like an essential part of the team’s success. The best options include:
- Family tickets to a zoo or water park
- Tickets to a popular local event
- A unique local tour
The options are uncountable. Look at different areas to identify the best experiences. All experiences must be tailored to meet the needs of specific employees. Tickets to the Opera, for example, may be ideal for some people but a nightmare for others. Sharing pictures of the experience with others could make things even more exciting.
Finding ways to celebrate success is essential for any remote team. It is one of the easiest ways to keep people engaged and committed to the success of the business. Although working remotely has its benefits, it has plenty of challenges as well. Without motivation, remote teams may have a hard time accomplishing their goals.
