Friendly Competition

If your office is working similarly to ours, you don't see all of your co-workers face to face each day or week. Maybe you're on an in-office rotation, maybe you're strictly working from home. If that's the case, you're probably struggling to continue that team bonding and cohesiveness you once had pre-Covid. Perhaps you're wanting some new ideas to connect - or maybe you have some to share!

 UNI's transfer team started our first competition by each submitting a photo of a purple-themed food item they created, then went to social media to select a winner. Our freshman recruitment team was asked to do the next round with a gold-themed food competition. Once again, our social media followers selected the winner (spoiler alert, it was me. My Golden Apple Crisp was crowned victorious). It was a fun way to interact outside of our zoom meetings and on a more social level, without going out to a social outing. We also submitted photos of our pets in UNI gear - but they were all too cute so that turned into a non-competition post.

Happy Friday! Blessing your feed with our four-legged cuties rocking purple and gold! Feel free to share your pets in the comments below!

 So it's your turn - what are you doing to foster relationships within your office/team? How are you finding ways to bond and support each other emotionally, as physical distance increases and in-person interactions are reduced? Make sure you're checking in on each other. This is a hard season for all people, for a variety of reasons. Make a weekly challenge to check in on one person from your team on a non-work level or topic, and don't forget that your supervisors may also be struggling and it's okay to check on them, too.

A casual conversation can go a long way in this time of isolation and change.
