How to hangout 101

PAC Virtual Hangouts hosted by Elevate was a nine week long, unique online gathering for PAC employees to create connection, engagement, and fun throughout the COVID-19 quarantine. To further grow the culture of the company, each week company executives would discuss announcements and future plans with employees. Birthdays were celebrated, fun videos were shared, and games were played. Despite the challenges of COVID-19, PAC dedicated time to growing and progressing their company through innovation with Elevate’s hosting and tech assistance.

Why Elevate?

Elevate and PAC have previously partnered together to create many successful events. PAC saw a need for their employees to have continued engagement and connection, despite the challenging times, and thus decided to honor their employees with a weekly time of fun, engagement, and connection. Elevate allowed PAC to enjoy time as a company with ease due to Elevate’s expertise and experience with live and virtual events.
