COVID-19 had a tremendous impact on the workforce, careers, and many people’s professional behaviours and productivity outcomes. Find out how Nisha Singhania, Co-Founder and Director at Infectious Advertising and one of the Top 100 Great People Managers of 2021 by Great Manager Institute® published in Forbes India, made the lockdown period fun and interactive for the employees.

“Make an initiative to have a Fun Friday.” 

Nisha took the initiative to start Infectious Game Night every second Friday when they played online games like Dumb Charades and Pictionary, which enhanced engagement among the team members during lockdown when everyone was working from home and missing out on enjoyable culture.

“Feature team members’ talent on social media.”

To increase the confidence of the team members, Nisha established a talent hunt activity and began showcasing the talents on social media. They also produced engaging films to be shared on social media, which gave the team members a sense of accomplishment and motivated them to work hard.

“Reward the exceptional performers.”

They offered monetary prizes in addition to certificates and trophies as rewards which encouraged the team to participate more and acknowledged them internally and on social media.
