Just half an hour over a pint could help your team build stronger relationships, and approach work more creatively.
Use our Team Mum appeal as an excuse to make your (online) workplace more fun. Let your team finish work early one day, in exchange for a £3 donation and a promise that they'll spend that time having a post-work drink together on Zoom, or taking a longer team lunch.
Given a bit of headspace away from their day-to-day, who knows what brilliant new ideas your team could come up with?
Wins all round
- Improve relations and communication among team members
- Be the best boss by rewarding your employees
- Match donations to show that you care about what your staff care about
- Give your CSR a boost
- Claim tax relief on your company donation
- Join Team Mum and provide new mums in rural Kenya with vital health information and support
How to organise Escape the Office in your (online or in-person) workplace
Ask your HR or CSR manager if they are happy for you all to join in to support our Team Mum appeal. (They might need to get permission from your management team, so ask early!)
Create a donation page and email it to everyone, asking them for a suggested donation of £3 to take part.
On the agreed day, gather your team for a drink on your chosen video conferencing software or book a place in your local pub if you're working in the office. You could also organise some simple, fun team-building exercises and games! If you need some ideas, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why hold an Escape the Office day for Team Mum?
In Kenya, one in 26 babies don't survive to see their first birthday. Child.org have a solution - Join Team Mum! By simply providing mums with some of the health education and support they would receive if they were giving birth in the UK, we can give their babies a better chance of survival.
