Celebrating the SG GSC spirit through fun activities in the office
For us coming back to the office, in a hybrid manner, is not only about work and meetings is also about social interaction and having fun together as a well-connected team. We are aware of the significance of a balance between work & fun and of taking the time to know each other through social activities in the office. This way we can enhance productivity and creativity among the teams, especially after the extremely stressful pandemic period that we all went through.
Whether it’s through organizing social events, celebrating special days or simply take the time to chat and connect in a relaxed manner, there are many ways to have fun together at the office. Such activities help break down barriers, foster collaboration and build trust among our colleagues. Keeping that in mind, during 2022, we had many opportunities for our colleagues to come and enjoy different activities in the office:
International Children’s Days: 80 children together with their parents took part in fun activities, enjoying pancakes prepared by our EXCO members, participating at workshops, creating recycled backets and T-shirt painting and making memories at the photobooth.
Ice cream day was also a big, yammy success, bringing together over 250 colleagues during a hot summer day, in June. Choosing from many flavors and toppings, gather around to enjoy a sweet treat during a busy day made our colleagues feel more connected and motivated to interact and get to know each other and their great work.
Smoothie bike sessions brought together more the 550 of our colleagues which were delighted to combine a delicious smoothie with the pleasure and benefits of riding a bike. Our colleagues are all aware that incorporating physical activities into workdays have many great benefits to their well-being and to their work performance.
14ht of July, France day is an important moment to celebrate the culture of our organization and of one of the world’s most iconic countries. It was the perfect opportunity for our colleagues to enjoy tradition French sweets and create memories with their teams at the French photobooth.
Movie night was another activity that brought together 80 of our colleagues with a big passion for movies. The session was a much-needed break from our daily routine, during the summer, allowing our colleagues to recharge, relax and reconnect with their team members.
Halloween celebration brought excitement and a festive spirit to our colleagues. We encouraged our teams to get into the Halloween spirit by taking part in creative recycling workshops and scary face painting and by enjoying pumpkin and apple pies. We managed to create a fun and memorable experience to all our colleagues present in the office that day.
1st of December marks the Romanian National Day which we celebrated by promoting a sense of national pride towards our colleagues by offering traditional pastry “Poale’n Brau”, decorating the office with red/yellow/blue balloons and organizing two workshops of wooden spoon painting.
Winter celebration in the office was taken to a whole new level this year. We managed to transform the workplace into a fun and festive space which brought together our colleagues and help them get into the holiday spirit through Christmas decoration workshops, 360 camera which transformed memories into dynamic gifs, scavenger hunt, a different kind of Christmas tree 100% sustainable and made entirely by our colleagues and by enjoying Christmas sweets in the office. We also had a one-week cocktail afterparty which was a great opportunity for our co-workers to bond, socialize and share the holiday cheer in an informal manner.
2022 was a full year with a great start for returning to the office and adapting to the new reality. We are happy to say that we managed to make this transition more enjoyable by offering a variety of fun activities to our colleagues.
