Set up a day dedicated to volunteering:

Encourage a spirit of solidarity within your teams by organizing a day dedicated to volunteering. Choose a cause that's close to your employees' hearts and get them involved together to support it. Whether by organizing a fund-raising event, taking part in activities with local associations, or performing community service, this enriching experience will strengthen the bonds between your teams while enabling them to make a positive difference in the community.

💡 The Mozzaik365 "Ideas box" component can be useful for this kind of initiative. It gives a voice to your employees, who can propose and vote for the cause they wish to support.

Summer : How to liven up your teams

Launch a summer photo contest:

Set up a summer photo competition within your company or organization. Encourage your teams to capture the highlights of their summer, whether during company activities or their own personal vacations. Reward the best photos with prizes such as gift vouchers for leisure activities. This competition will encourage creativity and team spirit, while creating unforgettable memories.  

An idea for a photo competition? If you have corporate goodies (t-shirts, mugs, totebags...), ask your employees to take a photo of themselves with the goodie in front of a historic monument, during their vacation.

💡 The Mozzaik365 "Focus" component is very useful for this photo contest! It takes the form of a frame, which displays text as well as a call-to-action button that redirects the user to the right information. Ideal for disseminating important information to your employees, you can add a CTA linking to the place where you'd like contest participants to submit their photos in SharePoint.

Organize a festive evening:

End the summer season on a high note by organizing a festive evening to celebrate your teams' successes and thank everyone for their contributions. Choose a pleasant, friendly venue, prepare entertaining entertainment, and offer a varied menu to suit all tastes. This relaxed, convivial evening will allow your staff to relax, strengthen ties and start the new school year with energy and enthusiasm!

💡 The Mozzaik365 "News" component is also a good solution for highlighting a festive evening. Simply create a SharePoint article with all the information about the event so that it appears in your company's latest news. With News, you can be sure that no one will forget the event.

To conclude

During the summer months, there's often less going on in the news, and business activity slows down as some employees enjoy their vacations. However, rather than seeing this period as a slump, it can be an ideal opportunity to innovate and strengthen collaboration within your company.

By organizing outdoor activities, stimulating challenges, personal development workshops, solidarity actions, fun competitions and a festive evening, you'll create an environment conducive to the personal and professional development of your employees. United and committed teams are the key to success for the future of your company or organization. So go on, have a memorable summer!
