Despite the easing of ‘lockdown’ working from home (WFH) is part of the ‘new normal’ for many of us whether we like it or not and it can be all too easy for team members to feel isolated and disconnected from their colleagues.
No matter what type of company you run and where your co-workers are located it’s more important than ever to make sure everyone feels like they are valued and is a key part of the team.
Quality down time is proving to play a significant role in the retention of staff and in times where morale can easily get low, is equally as important as ensuring that the ‘job gets done’. Teams that can share some fun outside of their day-to-day work often work better too – shared experiences help to build those all-important bonds, which can ultimately lead to better productivity.
WFH doesn’t mean you can’t have fun together as a team. All you need to do is get creative and enjoy.
A specialist food delivery company, Dough-Re-Me, have put together an ingenious way for teams to bond over food whilst maintaining social distancing.
Their Neapolitan Pizza party involves five easy steps to follow to arrange a fun night in for your team:
1/ Agree a date, a time, and send out an invite to a Zoom Pizza Party in your team’s virtual diary.
2/ Order the required number of Dough-Re-Me Neapolitan Pizza kits – they will then be delivered to every participant’s door by contactless courier.
3/ Hop on your Zoom call and get busy putting your pizzas together.
4/ While you’re all waiting you could really get in the mood by changing your Zoom call virtual background and swap it out for the cheesiest Italian restaurant background you can find, and dish out virtual forfeits for the worst and best to mix it up a little.
5/ Get cooking! Have some fun making your pizzas virtually and then simply tuck in and even enjoy a glass of wine or two. You could even get a little competitive by having a Ready Steady Cook style pizza cook off – or make it a virtual movie night, the options for follow on fun are endless.
Dough-Re-Me pizzas are lovingly created using only the finest ingredients sourced directly from Italy, with no artificial preservatives or flavourings and each Dough-Re-Me kit comes complete with all the ingredients to make two Neapolitan margherita pizzas… including hand-made 48-hour naturally fermented Caputo flour pizza dough, the company’s signature tomato sauce, made using only the finest San Marzano tomatoes, and delicious fior di latte mozzarella.
Because the kits have been developed by chefs, the kit also includes all those little extra finishing touches to create that authentic taste sensation… extra virgin olive oil, organic basil, Maldon sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
The kits are also available outside corporate events, so anyone can enjoy authentic hand-crafted Neapolitan pizza in the comfort of their own home in a frying pan in just under 5 minutes, with no mess and all the fun…
Dough-Re-Me pizzas are available for nationwide home delivery, all pizza ingredients are freshly prepared and boxed in chilled protective eco sourced packaging and delivered by courier within specified date ranges to ensure that customers receive the freshest ingredients direct to their door.
