Hosting a Virtual ER3
Now more than ever we need our team members to feel included. Hosting your ER3 virtually is an excellent way to ensure team members can be a part of our employee celebrations. Continue reading for some helpful tips on hosting a Virtual ER3 as well as ideas from each of our states.
Campus FB Employee Page
Create a private campus group page and invite your employees to join. Use this as a place where employees can recognize each other peer to peer as well as where campus leaders can recognize their team and/or a specific employee. Can also use this page to spotlight employees for tenure, anniversaries, promotions, etc.
Shout Out Boards
Encourage employees to recognize each other all week long using the shout out board. At the end of each week, recognize all that received a shout out/reason for the shout out (SAIL) on your campus FB Employee page. Can also use this Board to spotlight employees for tenure, anniversaries, promotions, etc.
Virtual O Great One (OGO)
Select an employee each week who will be the Virtual OGO of the week. Once the OGO is selected, the Executive Director should announce it via RedeApp to the campus team, keeping it a surprise for the OGO recipient if possible. Messages are solicited via RedeApp, by the Executive Director, from the OGO’s colleagues describing what is so great about him/her and why they appreciate this team member. All RedeApp messages from the OGO’s colleagues are compiled together by the Executive Director and shared via RedeApp with the OGO and the rest of the team.
ER3 via Zoom
Invite all employees to log into your campus zoom account at the same time (or offer 2 times to accommodate for various shifts). Play a virtual game and winners receive a prize.
Remote games can include:
A week prior to the Zoom ER3 announce a theme and ask everyone to dress/use props when dialing in
Have a photo contest; everyone submits a photo (can theme this as well)
- A baby picture of themselves; create a fun game around guessing who it is today
- Picture with their family doing a favorite activity; i.e. camping, hiking, fishing, playing volleyball, cooking, etc. (a “get to know you” activity)
- Funniest picture of them growing up (dressed 70’s style, in a funny wig, etc.); people vote on which is funniest, the winner gets a prize.
