Taking time to send personal emails to people across the different departments of your organization... thanking for their service relative to your IT department is a great practice... means a lot to hear from leaders across the org!

Try to stay away from over optimizing performance, once you give your employees some space they will grow comfortable in this new position and actually tend to become more productive on their own. We also tend to organize some gaming tournaments and announcements in our Slack when someone pushes to GitHub with failing CI (kind of like a swear jar penalty) and it's really fun. Once we go back to the office I am thinking of implementing an actual toy that shoots you in the face with a soft bullet if you push with failing CI

I use Gamification to keep them engaged. We have a lot of job, with specific deadlines, so in order the team to be highly motivated the Gamification mechanics help us with all the stuff we have to deliver & maintain our mental sanity as well.

Trying gamification of our sprints. Giving the team the ability to name their team and points for best planned sprint or best demo

even pre-COVID I had all remote teams spread out globally.   I always tried to allow time for some social discussion on our SKYPE calls as long as the business at hand was completed.  And whenever I traveled I always took as many people to lunch and dinners as I could.

We have not changed the routine work and have challenged the employees with new projects and/or responsibilities. Also we sent some games for them to enjoy with the family, branded items for them to wear as part of the team/company (identity) and also organize lunches where we send food/drinks to their homes for them to share in open videochat rooms. Also once a week our CEO has an town-hall videoconference to talk about the company, offer recognition and take questions.
