How Positivity Spirals Up
In a world deeply affected by a global pandemic, the day-to-day work life of employees all over the world has been greatly affected. Transitioning from the office to a work-from-home setup, video versus in-person meetings, and collaborating in the virtual world are all part of the reality we’ve grown accustomed to over the past year, but it hasn’t been easy.
We all feel how our new remote work environments have greatly impacted employee connection, but we still hear how hard or daunting it can feel to promote teamwork, collaboration, and shared productivity.
We also have clients who took advantage of this new distributed workforce model and used virtual events as a way to connect their teams in new and important ways.
This is exactly what happened with Dome Construction. Dome’s Director of Innovation and Learning, Steve Long, made it a priority to connect his team through virtual events and enlisted Grin Events and our virtual game show for its remote team building benefits. He thought the events were so effective, he invited Grin over and over to host virtual corporate events with multiple groups in his company.
We sat down with Steve to talk to him about why he hired Grin and his experiences with it. You can watch the full interview below.
One key takeaway was the importance of positivity and fun, even in the workplace.
As Steve said, “Positivity can spiral up… If we’re all positive, we create positivity, which creates positivity. But one way to get that positivity is through fun. And that positivity, if you can build that cycle, then you get people that are contributing to things that you didn’t even realize they were going to be able to do.”
We couldn’t agree more! As adults, many of us have forgotten how to have fun and the importance of a positive attitude. As our founder, John Grindle, said, “If we can remind people that fun is important and it’s okay to have fun at work with your colleagues, if nothing else, that’s a huge win.”
If you want to spiral up the positivity at your next event, we’d love to help.
