Cure the Winter Workplace Blues with a Destination Event

Published 01/18/2022

In this era of social distancing, it’s often tough to muster up enthusiasm in your employees. Whether they’re working from home permanently now or gradually returning to the workplace, one thing’s for sure – the social glue that used to keep co-workers connected has been severely affected by the outbreak of covid. Add inhospitable weather to the mix and your staff will likely develop a serious case of the winter blues.

Why not bring them back to life with a day of bread and circus? (The phrase “bread and circus” refers to a tactic that Roman Emperors used to keep their people busy and happy using the great old standbys of entertainment, food, and drink.)

Whether it’s music, pub games, team-building activities, sporty recreation, lunch or dinner, or any combination thereof, nothing has the power to breathe new life back into a sagging staff morale like bread and circus. And nothing could be more memorable than holding such an event at an utterly unique entertainment venue.

Here are some terrific indoor and outdoor event centers in Rhode Island, where you can reignite the spirit and energy of your employees during the winter months. Imagine the possibilities!
