Sharing images and videos is the biggest trend of the day and why should the same not be used to add some fun at work too.
It was said that images add life to your memories but looking at the current trends images add a lot of popularity to your daily life. They give others a source to peek into your life and gain some entertainment. And it's not even wrong as long as no misuses are done of the content.
At work too photo sharing can be used effectively to create team bond and add some fun to the otherwise boring environment.
Here are 3 fun ways to use photo sharing at work place:
1) Create work memories
There are too many things we do at work apart from working. Whether it is the annual gala, conference, sports day, festival celebrations etc. There remain to be the work memories that we remember even after leaving the company. Make these memories even more special by creating a photo bank of the same. Share selected images from the events using your social intranet and also save the complete photo data in your data management tool. Give employees a reason to participate more and more in company activities.
2) Start employee photo blogs
Encourage your employees to be more creative. Every time an employee travels or does something interesting ask them to create photo memories make a photo out of them and share the same as a photo blog. Photos can tell stories by themselves specially if somebody has a knack for photography they will really appreciate this initiative.
3) Play photo of the month
Everybody has smart phones and cameras at their disposals these days. And people love to click even if they don’t know the P of photography. But the question rises what do to with all these pictures some of which can be really magnificent ones. Well now you can engage employees by starting a photo of the month contest for the employees. Ask them to submit a good pic clicked by them every month and have a jury to decide who wins. You could keep the winning photo framed at the reception for that month to further encourage employee participation.
