emote work does not mean you never see your coworkers. Instead, remote companies should be intentional with their in-person meetings and create a welcoming, safe, and social environment. Splacer has unique event spaces for Chicago teams needing to create in-person connections with coworkers. We have ideas for planning a team event that will build trust, establish relationships, and share unique skills to give your company an edge in the hybrid work world. Discover these five ideas for your next corporate event in Chicago!
Add in Movement: Boxing Room gym
In remote work, there are often too many hours spent sitting at your desk all day. Try renting a boxing room and host a movement class like yoga to help reset your mind and body! Being able to travel for work will feel meaningful and help you bond with your team members in a creative and refreshing way.
