Father’s Day 2020: Why you need to get your internal comms right this year

  • Offer some downtime — an early finish on Friday or even half a day, all with the focus of spending quality time with our households with no pressure to check emails. Many of us know how hard the past few months have been to juggle remote working with children at home, so acknowledging this and rewarding employees with no-strings family time in work hours will be welcomed by many.
  • If sending out gifts is possible with your budget, consider gifting a photo frame with the prompt to recall a happy memory. This one should help you communicate the importance of positive reflection with any family member or person close to them.
  • Consider celebrating what being a dad means to your people’s children. Could you address them directly with a personalised letter or giftbag, telling them how great their dad is at his job?
  • End the week leading up to Father’s Day with an invitation to your people to join an optional Zoom call with their children the following Monday. Children will love feeling a part of their dad’s work day and talking about what they did with their dad for Father’s Day, and everyone will enjoy knowing their status as a parent is something to welcome at work.
