Does anyone have ideas on how to help local businesses during this time from a work perspective? Our engagement committee thought of buying gift cards and somehow incorporating ways to give back but our matching gift program applies to organizations that are only IRS tax exempt. I am trying to find a way that the company can help with giving back to local business. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Hi, gift cards are a great idea! We’ve also done zoom events for our team. We’re all logged in from our homes. We’ve done a mixology class 45 mins. Cupcake decorating 60 mins. Flower arrangements 60 mins. The small business will send out supplies for the event that day and we all log in. At first I was skeptical, but they have been great, interactive, team building, and support the small business’s! You’re buying the supplies from the business, promoting them to your team, team building and creating ideas for your reps to utilize. Just a thought. Good luck! I’ve heard others w pizza making kits, wine tastings. You can also do this with your clients if you don’t have “reps”. People are board at work from home environments. This definitely adds a little life.
