With the first quarter already out of the way, we are sure you have much more clarity on the goals and plans for this year. April is also the best time of the year to get invested in your employees, as this will make them vested in the company. So why not indulge in some employee engagement fun activities in office, and keep that fun vibe going?
We have put together a list of some of the great days in April, and how you can use these as an opportunity for your teams to Act As One.
1st April - April Fool’s Day
Starting off the month with a little fun. How about a callout for the best April Fool prank ideas across your teams? And voting for the best item!
The team which gets the most votes will get interviewed by internal communications, and get to share with the rest of the company a little bit about themselves and what makes their team great.
Next, you can also make April a special month for employees across various job groups.
4th April, Global Day of the Engineer
Have a virtual demo day where the engineers get to show off some cool stuff they are proud of. You can also ask your engineering teams to share their Murphy’s law stories, and give an award to the person with the best story. The tech teams get to vote on the best story.
16th April, Bean Counters day
Organize a team event for the accounting group to take their mind off of taxes.
