Show some activity creativity by attending a few #virtualmeetings in costume, after all, it is Halloween week! To all the people leaders – act as role models. If you kick off the fun (even if it's out of your comfort zone!), the rest of your team will follow.

With Halloween taking a mostly remote stage this year, consider how you can include your co-workers' children - this is the week to bring out the kid in all of us and be a little silly!

For more activity creativity suggestions, read our blog: https://virtualworkinsider.com/2020/03/24/use-activity-creativity-to-drive-remote-team-culture-3/
