Working from home starts out fun. You don’t have to wear pants to meetings and get to work in bed. (And have the back aches to prove it!) Then the loneliness hits, and you realize clocking in and doing your job every day doesn’t quite feel the same without the camaraderie.
When you’re working remotely, your only real co-worker is sometimes only a pet… or even a plant. Because of that, it’s not uncommon to feel like you’re all on your own, even when your day-to-day work is exactly the same. That’s because you’ve lost the sense of community you used to have from going into the office every day—something no amount of Slack messages from your team can replace. Fitspot’s diverse selection of daily virtual experiences, on the other hand, can help fill that gap.
Building Community – Virtually
At Fitspot, we have numerous different experiences that allow your team to bond from afar, helping bring back the feeling of community that’s slowly dwindled since quarantine began. That’s important: Not only has past research shown a sense of community results in greater productivity. It also ups your work performance and makes you happier and less stressed. In addition, it makes employees more loyal since they feel like they’re part of something.
While co-workers no longer get to take lunch breaks together, celebrate birthdays in the office conference room, or go to after-work happy hours together, Fitspot’s live virtual experiences allow you to make sure that workplace culture is still in good standing—that employees know they’re still of the utmost importance, even when they’re remote. While traditional work perks are becoming a thing of the past, at least for the time being, employees will be able to look forward to seeing their colleagues with a schedule of events to choose from. There are cooking classes, live music, workouts, and more, making it easy to find something everyone will enjoy.
Aside from having new experiences together through these digital events, Fitspot’s Challenges allow you to interact with your team on another level through step counting competitions, meditation challenges, and beyond. These competitions aren’t just fun—they also create better conversations and allow employees to keep each other accountable, all while bettering their physical and mental health.
Every week, there will be something different to make being remote feel not so…remote. Instead, you’ll feel more togetherness than you have in weeks—plus, have a lot of fun with your team in the process.
