Corporate Private Virtual Interactive Experiences

The extended lockdowns and the continued ‘work from home’ since March 2020 has had a profound impact on individuals which has created unique challenges for organisations. As we recover from the ‘physical’ effects of both the waves of the pandemic, the focus has shifted to the mental & emotional well- being of people which will take a much longer time to recover.

Companies are now focused on doing whatever they can for the well-being of their employees including boosting their morale and bringing back the camaraderie within the teams so that they are motivated and continue to deliver the high standards of performance expected from them.

At Odyssey, we can offer an opportunity for your team/s to engage with each other in a fun way – by learning a new skill, by keeping their wanderlust alive by travelling virtually to destinations around the world, by engaging the teams with virtual team building games and plenty more.

Our LIVE, curated & interactive virtual experiences will foster conversations, build the camaraderie between team members as well as break the WFH monotony! These experiences can also be curated to celebrate a company milestone, reward team achievements, or celebrate a special occasion like a birthday, work anniversary or even a retirement.
