Idea Fair

Heartfelt Video Greetings


How has this idea enhanced your club's operation, etc.?

In an effort to deepen our connection during the holiday season—a time when both our staff and members often find themselves more at work than with family—we introduced personalized video holiday greetings. This initiative began with a simple yet powerful idea: to acknowledge our staff’s unwavering dedication with a personal video message from our General Manager. The warmth and genuine appreciation expressed in this message for Thanksgiving set a precedent, inspiring us to broaden the gesture for the winter holidays. We created a series of video messages that not only featured our General Manager but also included heartfelt contributions from staff across various departments, aimed at our members.

This thoughtful approach transcended traditional holiday greetings, creating a more intimate and impactful experience. It allowed both members and staff to see and appreciate the collective effort and dedication that goes into making our club a special place, especially during the festive season. This initiative has fostered a stronger sense of community and belonging, making everyone involved feel valued and connected.

How was this idea implemented, and what have been the club members' reactions?

Implementing this initiative involved gathering heartfelt holiday messages from staff across different departments, led by an inspiring message from our General Manager. This collective effort was seamlessly compiled into engaging video greetings, showcasing the club’s diverse community and spirit.

The reaction from our members was overwhelmingly positive, with many expressing their appreciation for the unique, personal touch these videos provided. It not only brought joy but also strengthened the connection between members and the staff, enhancing the sense of community within the club. Staff members also felt a deep sense of pride and connection, affirming the value of personal engagement in fostering a warm, inclusive atmosphere during the holiday season.
