It’s been one month since our team began working remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While we’ve been fortunate to have a smooth transition overall, many of us are missing lunch breaks with coworkers, hallway chats and – most of all – happy hours.
To help stay connected during these crazy times, our Fun Committee recently kicked off a Virtual Happy Hour Series. Each week, we come together over a Zoom call to grab a drink and chat about our lives. So far, the turnout has been fantastic. We’ve been treated to special guest appearances by little ones, furry friends, and President & CEO, Rob Falls!
The committee also provides a discussion topic theme for each virtual happy hour.
Many of us have found ourselves watching more TV than usual while we’re stuck at home. In our first virtual happy hour, we discussed the shows that have us hooked.
Lions and tigers and money launderers, oh my! According to our company-wide survey, here are the top shows on our watch lists:
- Tiger King – 37%
- Ozark – 30%
- Schitt’s Creek – 20%
- Love is Blind – 13%
Social distancing also has us daydreaming about our favorite travel destinations. During our second virtual happy hour, we reminisced on our most memorable trips and the places we’re hoping to visit once travel bans are lifted.
Some of our team members even shared photos of their getaways.
While we can’t wait until we’re able to catch up in person again, these virtual happy hours have been the perfect way to wind down our weeks while working remotely.
