Gather a Social Team

For employees to feel valued, they need to feel like they are an important part of a team.

Crucially, you need to keep in mind that your workforce will consist of people that are very different from one another, including people of different generations, introverts and extroverts, and people with different interests. Therefore, it is a good idea to form a group from different age brackets to organize bimonthly social events and to mix these events up and make them optional. Keep your introverted team members in mind as they can be hugely valuable and may struggle with regular social events, so you need to find ways to make them feel comfortable without forcing them to be social.
