Working remotely is becoming a popular trend among many organizations nowadays as it has several perks equally for the employees as well as employers. But on the negative side, one must note that working away from the workspace may hamper understanding between employees, employers as well as clients. Further, a healthy work environment is challenging to create when people are not sharing the same space and thus lacking oneness. Exploring the view further, we have assimilated different options below that maintains the importance of remote team building events for a unified organization.
Creating a unity and connecting with your employees
Working remotely can grow not only physical but understanding barriers between your team members as well as managers. This can certainly lead to conflicts in ideas and their implementation. A strong organization needs to have a positive, motivated and united team. Via organizing regular remote team building events like ‘10 things about you’ can increase familiarity and connection. Each person needs to write ten facts about themselves which can be anything about them from favourite food to book or a movie. Or maybe organize a fun review about a particular movie or book.
Socializing and sharing
Although working remotely allows employees freedom and comfort, it can also create loneliness. This can be a challenging aspect for many companies to overcome as it solely depends on how different people consider remaining secluded. One can organize creative game sessions online like cinema or GK quiz with pairs or have gaming websites involved as well for more fun.
Increase communication and collaboration among team members
A conversation involves sharing, agreeing, disagreeing and suggesting different ideas. The process creates a sense of collaboration and connection among employees & employers. Productive team building events can immensely help in increasing the communication and collaboration among your team. However, with some fun team events via virtual access like allowing random employees to pair up on a virtual 30-minute coffee break where they can talk or share different aspects of their lives and take inspiration from each other.
Nurturing company’s overall health
A company cannot be developed by an individual’s progress or efforts. Its overall health is largely determined by how motivated, skilled and satisfied the workforce they have. In another team event, you can ask everyone to post a picture of themselves in an online meeting board that describes them in some or other ways. Or organize a 15-minute virtual coffee meeting session as they present their work and discuss it.
Conclusively, by organizing regular remote sessions for team building events you can foster a healthy, positive, fun and de-stressing environment and understand each member of your team equally.
