Virtual teambuilding is a method to bring remote teams together and create a work environment that mimics a co-located office environment. It allows the entire team to become familiar with one another and create meaningful relationships that leave all members feeling more valued and satisfied.
Why is virtual teambuilding important?
The physical distance of remote work can quickly turn into emotional distance, so it’s important to create a comfortable team culture that virtual workers can rely on.
Virtual teambuilding consists of several strategies, games and activities that are meant to bring more human interaction to online activities. Strategies include ice-breaker questions as well as video and non-video based games and activities. These strategies lead to closer-knit teams and heightened levels of collaboration.
Virtual teambuilding not only improves team effectiveness, but can also induce laughter and comic relief to the workplace.
Whether your team is partially remote or fully remote, virtual teambuilding is essential in building a strong foundation for your company.
A study by TeamBonding states that “65% of remote employees report that they have never had a team building session”.
What does this mean?
This means a lot of companies are failing to do an easy task that can have massive benefits.
