With remote work taking place in most companies due to the pandemic, HR is turning to virtual events to maintain team spirit, encourage connection between members and provide a welcome fun relief from the day-to-day work life.

Of course, it is important to stay innovative and find fun virtual corporate events that the whole company will want to participate in and enjoy.

So here are some great virtual corporate events ideas!

Virtual Game Night

This is one of those fun and entertaining corporate virtual events that, if planned carefully, could be a great source of team-building activities. In this case, it is important to create a survey so that you know which types of games people prefer. Based on that, they can be divided into smaller gaming groups and have fun.

There are a lot of great ways to go about it, from tabletop game platforms to really immersive gaming competitions. Either way, this event can feature a little something for everyone.

Live Music Events

We all know how much music heals, both mind and soul. And this is exactly what your employees can benefit from. Sure, streaming is a great option, but attending a live virtual concert just for them is a whole other experience.

They get to share the moment, and the emotions, bond over songs and have something to talk about and discuss on the watercooler chat channel on Slack.

Escape Room

This is one of the best forms of virtual entertainment for corporate events. It includes teamwork, focus, research skills, and it is played within a tight time limit. Overall great fun for everyone. Random teams are formed, enabling employees from different sectors to meet, get to know each other, and then work together towards escaping.

This helps people connect, actually talk, come up with ideas and solutions, and everyone gets to contribute and participate.

A Virtual Magic Show

Never underestimate the fun that people have watching a great magician at work. This is one of those virtual corporate events that will have everyone glued to their seat trying to figure out how a trick is done. It is especially fun for remote teams as everyone will think the trick will be easier to spot.

This, again, is a virtual event about which you can expect a lot of conversation afterward, ideas, opinions, and just sharing the experience. This is something that is crucial for remote teams since it can get lonely just being in front of the screen and doing all the communication via chat.

Virtual Cooking or Cocktail Class

Virtual cooking or cocktail classes are fun options for a social event. All you need to do is find a cook or mixologist, and have everyone join in from their kitchens. You can send out kits with ingredients a few days earlier so that everyone can prepare for the event. Just make sure you ask about possible allergies.

This is a great way to provide employees with much-needed social contact while allowing them to learn some new skills, all from the comfort of their homes. And let's be honest, getting to share a drink with your workmates is always a great option, even for a virtual corporate event.

Team Bonding Virtual Corporate Event

This is a great way to get your team closer together. It is usually organized by experts in psychology and sociology. The activities are meant to get employees to share a bit more about themselves, discover what they have in common with the people they work with, and just engage with other members of their team or company.

It is difficult to build a close working relationship when you work in a remote team. Events like these can really help nudge people to open up more, share, and even make new friends within the company.

Virtual Corporate Events

Just because an office Christmas party is not an option right now doesn't mean there should not be a virtual one. They are fun to organize and prompt socialization between coworkers. Why not make it even more fun? Have everyone get some fun head ornaments like antlers or glasses, a snugly sweater is a definite bonus, and make sure there is a drink in everyone's hand.

This will lead to fun conversations, some recaps of interesting events, and an overall sense of finishing another great year as a team.

These are just some of the ideas for a virtual corporate event. As long as there is a will, there is a way, and remote teams can benefit significantly from these types of activities. Not only do they affirm that each employee is a valued member of the team, but they also prompt people to interact and communicate in a way that they usually don't tend to over work chats and emails.
