Have you ever wondered why some react like this when you propose a team activity?
This happens both in person at the office and in remote contexts. It’s understandable that not everybody wants to connect, mingle and get to know their colleagues. In the office it can be potentially excused, because of the “I’m seeing my colleagues in the office anyway” feeling. However, for remote teams arranging online team activities should be high in the priority list.
The latest research shows that lack of relationships among employees is the most commonly named disadvantage of remote teams. That’s why at Skyrocket Your Team we pay extra attention to online engagement and team activities. We’re a distributed team as well, so we practice what we preach.
We have gathered our top 5 virtual team building activities, which can be arranged at any time with very few preparations. We have tested each of them for you and outline the main focus, how long it will take to complete, and what you need to participate. Each activity boosts team spirit and provides an awesome opportunity to connect with your colleagues.
Whether you’re part of a distributed team, temporarily remote team, or just can’t meet your colleagues due to restrictions, keep reading.
