The Connector: Edition Six

The Connector Newsletter Image 1


Welcome Back!

All year long, but especially during the Thanksgiving season, we're so grateful for wonderful friends and supporters like YOU!

We originally started this Newsletter in March with the intention to share COVID-19 updates...it turned into so much more.

The connections, resources, friendships, business, and conversations that curated from The Connector has truly inspired us.

Wishing you and your loved ones a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving from your friends at The O'Connor Group!

1. Thanksgiving Day Activities During Covid-19

Thanksgiving may be a little confusing to navigate in these challenging times. We might be spending the day with less family, or virtually hosting dinner through zoom. To make the day still feel festive, check out these creative ideas! From endless trivia, to a movie marathon and cocktails, you will have a fun-filled day!

2. Virtual Clue For Employee Engagement

Are you wondering how to host an engaging virtual employee event? Your team is guaranteed to have a fun time while they tap into their problem-solving skills, think analytically, collaborate closely, and communicate effectively in order to successfully solve the case. Sign your team up and let the teamwork begin!


3. Rethink Innovations: Digital Sanitizing Stations

Enhance engagement with customers with entertaining or informative messages on hand sanitizer stations at your business! These stations show dynamic videos and the static images can all be shown on the built-in display screen to communicate to your employees or customers. This is perfect for a safe transition back into the office or to put in stores! And of course, Rethink is a small woman-owned business...Just ask for Allyson! Check out their website here!


4. Brush'em If You Want to Keep'em

We can all agree that our daily rituals are a bit off now that we are spending more time in our homes. It is critical to remember in our busy days the importance of brushing your teeth. You should be brushing your teeth every 12 hours. The most important time to brush is right before bed...check out why in this article!


5. Join A Book Club!

Here at The O'Connor Group, we are reading Radical Candor. This incredible book by Kim Scott is all about communication, relationships, and honesty in the work environment. We love getting together to discuss the chapters and what we have learned. Starting a book club at your office can be a great way to stay connected virtually and to keep the communication flowing!

6. As Covid-19 Cases Rise, Restrictions Increase

With the amount of Covid-19 cases projected to continue to rise in Pennsylvania, Govern Wolf enforced new mitigation to help stop the spread during this time. Schools, businesses, and indoor/outdoor gatherings are the main focus of the new changes. Wolf is trying to discourage any unnecessary travel, and prevent the spread in all areas possible. Wolf also included that all restaurants and bars must stop serving alcohol at 5pm only on November 25th, 2020. Read the full article here.
