Organizing physical team building activity takes a lot of work. It includes hiring a team building company, finding a venue, arranging transportation, sourcing catering options, and most importantly, taking away a lot of productive time from employees.
The seemingly low return on investment to organize it means it is an unattractive proposal!
But running virtual team building activities is exactly the opposite. While the outcome stays the same to level up the team’s understanding and collaboration with one another, all the work that goes into planning and the expensive investment are not required.
A team building company with physical facilitators, not needed. Venue and catering, not needed. Transportation, not needed. Finally, instead of taking a full day out of everyone’s work day, only 60-120 minutes are needed from everyone. And within minutes upon finishing the activities, the team can be back to focusing on their important work.
