How do you have a Christmas Jumper Day at work when everyone is working from home? At SL Controls, we all met up in festive attire in our virtual canteen!
We hold regular virtual canteen events to help everyone on the team stay connected with their colleagues. While not a perfect substitute for meeting up in person, they are still a good way to socialise in the workplace.
We used our Christmas Jumper Day this year to raise money for the Simon Community and its efforts to help those at risk of homelessness.
Shauna Ryan, SL Controls HR Manager, said: “Even though these events are virtual, they are still fun, and it is great to chat to the team about non-work topics. It was also good to see everyone getting into the festive spirit with their Christmas jumpers and having fun with filters and backgrounds.
“Raising funds for the Simon Community was an important part of the event too. They do fantastic work all year, but that work is even more essential over the Christmas period. We are proud to be able to support the work they do.”
