One way to foster camaraderie in the office while doing good for the community is to sponsor a team in a large charity event. At NJ MET, we have walked in the March of Dimes Walk for Babies for the last 12 years as well as participated in the annual Jimmy Fund walks. Our employees are proud to be part of Team NJ MET at these events. We also encourage our vendors and customers as well as our neighbors in Clifton to join the team.
Participation in these events gives employees time to share a common interest and relate to customers and each other in a more relaxed atmosphere.
To increase employee interest, you can have a group of employees select the charity event to participate in and also design T-shirts to be worn at the event.
Don’t forget to take pictures at the event and post them in the office!
