The right team matters more than you think.
Not only is team culture a crucial component of a positive work environment, but it also encourages communication, productivity, collaboration, and more. In fact, some experts even consider team building to be one of the most important investments a company can make.
But with so many opportunities for team building, where do you start? Here’s a quick list of virtual team building activities––plus where to find them––to bring your team closer than ever.
Virtual Food Experiences
Happy hour may not look quite like it used to, but that doesn’t mean you can’t offer your team delicious drinks and mouthwatering meals from afar. Try hosting an interactive virtual event for your team to bring the food and cocktails to them!
With virtual classes, for example, a chef can bring amazing recipes right to your team’s home kitchen, helping them recreate a complex meal in real time. Remote happy hours get the party started table by table, helping your team launch the conversation with fun icebreakers. You might even want to try a virtual holiday party this year, complete with food and alcohol delivered right to participants’ doors!
Remote Braint teasers and Games
Let your team put their heads together and show what they know! Trivia and games have always been a crowd favorite when it comes to team building, and virtual experiences make it as easy as ever for your team to show off their stuff.
Live-hosted online trivia game shows can both entertain and challenge your team, or you might want to get them thinking critically with fast-paced virtual scavenger hunts. Don’t forget the perennial favorite: a virtual escape room to inspire the detective in everyone! Plus, immersive social gaming experiences can have your team collaborating to beat a bomb, win a game show, survive a disaster, or play a host of virtual games.
Want to further your team’s productivity while helping them learn vital skills? Opting for fun but practical learning experiences may be the way to go. For example, your team can learn to strategically leverage humor in the workplace for better interpersonal connections. Alternatively, you might want them to learn to optimize tough topics like their remote work, communication, or pitching skills. These types of skills can get your team on the same page, and learning them together can cultivate a stronger sense of community.
While these are some great team building activities, there are plenty of other activities to choose from online. Whatever games or activities you decide to use in your virtual office, team building is definitely worth the effort of planning!
