It's that festive time of year, so eagerly awaited after a year full of upheaval. December is just around the corner. It's often synonymous with festivities. Unfortunately, this year will once again be a little different, and we won't be able to spend it under normal conditions.
So it will be difficult to get together in teams to wish each other well. But this year, more than ever, we need to stand together and support each other.
Why not try an activity that both keeps the festive spirit alive and does good deeds at the same time: the reverse advent calendar.
Every day in December, instead of opening the window of one of the many commercial advent calendars, we suggest you put non-perishable foods and non-alcoholic drinks in a box. In just a few days, you'll have put together a box full of goodies for people in need.
The grand start of this action will begin *SURPRISE* onDecember 1. Set yourself at least ten days to complete this challenge, so that each beneficiary is entitled to the same quantity of products.
Your reverse advent calendar must end no later than December 17 to be able to drop off your gift at one of Les Samaritains asbl's collection points, which will then distribute your gifts to those in need.
To make this action even more fun to share, we recommend that you send yourself a photo of the donated product each day via your whatsapp, team, intranet or other groups. Not only will this enable the brainiacs to add their product of the day, but it will also provide ideas in case you run out of ideas.
If you want to turn it into a challenge, don't hesitate to use points to make the action more dynamic. Here's a suggested breakdown of points, but they can be adapted:
Take a photo on the day you drop off your gift at the depots. You'll earn 5 bonus points if you wear a Christmas accessory in the photo.
Finally, make a montage of all these photos together to display in your offices. It'll make a great photo of the 2020 holiday season, despite the distance! The winner(s) can have their name under the photo.
And who knows? Could this challenge become a company custom?
More and more articles are reporting on the decline of "classic" teambuildings; judged a waste of money and time, teambuildings are being roundly criticized. Let's decipher together!
On January 5, 2023, a European Commission regulation came into being under the name "Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD)". It requires companies to report transparently on their sustainability policies and performance. Whether your target date is 2023 or 2027, it's a good idea to start the process as soon as possible and get as many people involved as possible.
Ready to take part in your next fun and committed teambuilding event?
Or not sure where to start?
Let's get together!
Did you know that websites consume a lot of energy? Today, with OLED screens going mainstream, pixels get individually lit up on your screen. That's why darker colours and less complex images allow part of your screen to go dark. Are we saving the planet by putting our background in dark green? No. Are we taking a tiny step in the right direction, with what's at our disposal while keeping our website fun with some photos and pops of colour? Yes! And that's what Surveco is all about :)
So yes, our background is dark, but yes, we also have fun animations & photos to show you what we're all about.
Added bonus: reading white text on a dark background is better for your eyes! You may for instance already notice how this popup is tiring them ;)
