Many of our staff have expressed feeling of isolation and loss of connection with their colleagues. Some ideas our well-being champions came up with the help build connections while social distancing include:
Drive-in movie night in the parking lot
Happy hour zooms
Tailgate talks to meet in parking lot and everyone stay distanced
Text or message board within our department for non-work fun communication (kids, gifs).
Walking meetings using cell phones
Send personal cards to home to build teamwork
Share what your work unit has done to build connections
