A virtual happy hour is an activity that uses the newest technology to virtually bring people and employees together who work remotely, as they would in a bar in normal circumstances, to build links between them around fun, collaborative and unifying activities that usually revolve around drinking, hence the happy hour term.
For KRONOS Experience, we have adapted this experience so that your staff will not have to remain behind their computer screens, it’s actually the complete opposite! Our team will organise a virtual happy hour on ZOOM and incorporate virtual team building activities through different apps and remote technologies, so that your employees can cooperate and have fun while being physically ACTIVE, both indoors and outdoors.
In the current times of almost forced remote working, it has been tough for employers and human resources departments to keep a decent level of commitment from their team members, and even harder to maintain a good level of mood between these teams. These all-new working conditions increase the risk of turning the employees involved into less productive employees.
According to numerous studies in connection with the coronavirus pandemic, almost half of remote workers suffer from a high level of psychological distress, which is sometimes caused by lack of sleep and lower performances at work. These results show us how important it is to find ways to bring work teams together whilst participating in positive, social and fun activities.
Although the happy hour party itself only lasts a few hours, we make sure to create a real craze and sense of excitement among your colleagues during the 2 weeks preceding the event to stimulate their curiosity, commitment, and develop a feeling of competition within the work teams. Our secret? We create a personalized and evolving web page dedicated to the experience that your colleagues are about to participate in. It immerses players in a fascinating parallel universe that stimulates the imagination. It can take the form of a journalistic web article, a scientific study report, or a video message dedicated to your company… all methods are a good way to capture the attention and awaken the neurons of your colleagues to live an immersive and memorable group experience!
KRONOS Experience team is with you all of the way through. We’ll be there to help you plan the event, we give you tools to facilitate its diffusion to your team, we’ll lead the event and we’ll even be there for you after the event!
For example, depending on the concept that has been chosen, a few days before the event we will organise a practice run for your virtual happy hour allowing users to get a feel of our mobile app, and getting as much information as possible to make your virtual event as personalised as it possibly can be.
Then it comes to the day of the event where we will make sure everyone understands what is going on and is comfortable before starting the virtual happy hour event. Then even when the events start we will be talking you through the steps, recording your progress and are available for any time for any questions you may about the event.
Once the event is over, we will go back to the main room, have a few people from both Kronos Experience and your organisation say a few words before we go over the final scores, announce a winning team, go over your best bits with a video taken of the event and then hand over the room to yourselves to party on as long as you like!
After the event, we will be in touch to make sure you enjoyed your experience, gather some feedback and send over your best bits video!
