Each October Indeedians around the globe eagerly await our highly-anticipated Halloween celebration. Last year’s virtual-Halloween proved that just because we’re not together in the office doesn’t mean we won’t take the opportunity to show off our creativity and become some of the most beloved fictional characters. 

From October 25-29, various events and competitions were offered to get everyone in the Halloween spirit. From costume contests to see who will pull out all the stops, to Zumba with a spooky twist, our Employee Experience and Facilities teams ensured there was something everyone can take part in, even children. Take a look at how Indeed celebrated Halloween virtually in 2021.

To end the week, our internal communication platform was filled with ideas for fun Halloween activities at home including Halloween crafts, team and group games that can be played at home, and more. We were also given delicious Halloween-themed recipes like spider web brownies, ghost strawberries, and creepy cookies.

While we anxiously await the chance to celebrate Halloween together again, this yearly celebration still proves to be one of our most popular.
