Since so many company members enjoyed participating, the interest in in-house events grew following this 50th anniversary event. At this point, a lot of company events such as in-house training and business division policy announcements are now held online. Through this anniversary event, the feeling of resistance to online seems to have disappeared altogether. The successful conversion of this event from in-person to online also demonstrated flexibility and set up a precedent for future similar situations. It seems to have triggered a wave of new exciting ideas and projects in the future.
The JCD Factor
The executive committee consulted with JCD as they had trouble figuring out how to do their event in-person, and we resolved this by inspiring them to do an online event. JCD’s online events so far have been filled with a variety of features that continue to expand. While we are currently still struggling with the pandemic, this does not mean all events should be cancelled flat out, especially major anniversary events such as this one.
Online events allow people that are teleworking or are far away to easily participate, and chat functions are a basic method to remove hurdles for participation. Just like in the case of NJK, having all employees of a large company participate will create a sense of unity. We encourage you to not give up on the ideas you may have had for an in-person event completely, and instead let us help you figure out how to turn it into an online success.
