champagneMay was a great month for our company. We broke through a psychological income barrier and set a new monthly record. These are the types of things that should be celebrated in companies – but how do you do that in a virtual environment? This is one of the downsides of working in a virtual company.
What we ended up doing was transferring an amount of money into each person’s bank account (including some of our favourite suppliers and associates – all those who had contributed during May), instructing them to find a few friends and go out and celebrate on our behalf. There is something fun about that, and I think it has achieved the purpose of an organisational celebration, but maybe there are other things we could have done (or could still do). Any ideas?
Final thought: I console myself with the thought that most “normal” corporations do not have the celebrations at all anyway, so are still one step ahead.
