REMOTE & VIRTUAL TEAM BUILDING ACTIVITIES

Maintain positive motivation and teamwork through interactive remote team building activities

Now's the time to focus on your teams

In uncertain times companies and employees have been separated into working silos via working from home.  This has undoubtedly changed the way businesses and staff communicate and interact.  The increased use of virtual platforms such as Zoom and MS Teams has seen an increased volume of online team meetings, but how can you go that extra mile to retain motivation and encourage people to still work as teams, just in different ways.

What does remote team building do?

Remote team building can be done in many different ways, with different outcomes.  From just fun experiences where staff come together in mini teams and compete virtually via online apps, to experiential learning where employees learn more about themselves and others in ways to help them understand and communicate with each other more effectively.

All our different remote team building experiences are designed to engage, motivate and bring teams together with a common goal and sense of purpose.  This allows us to still focus on building teams, as we do in live environments, just via a virtual platform, with virtual hosts, games masters and facilitators.

What teams did before that they cant do now

In a face to face environment teams are able to bounce off each other, plan, brainstorm, share new ideas, temperature check and effectively communicate.  Take away that level of interaction and it’s easy to slip into isolation which leads to the breakdown of team effectiveness.

Individuals are now detached from the team environment which takes away the human factors that play such a pivotal role in motivation, drive and performance.  People thrive on the daily interaction with others, both in the workplace and socially.

The fun aspect of teams and being around people is also removed.  With many of us working from home, how much of energy we harvest from people is lost?  Is it just all work and no play now?

Teams need leaders, leaders need teams

An ongoing part of a leaders role is to constantly manage, motivate, and inspire people to achieve.  This can be challenging in a normal environment, let alone with teams, small and large, now fully distanced.  Team members thrive of being part of a group and a community, including strong leadership to unite everyone.

Leaders also need their team members to perform.  They all play a pivotal role in ongoing success. People all have different needs, roles, personalities, skills and motivations.  Now, more than ever, leaders and teams need to continually maintain relations in order to perform now and in the future.

Why develop your teams virtually?

A huge amount of time, money, effort and training goes into developing teams.  Is it time to now let that all slip?  When the world comes out of distanced isolation most businesses will regroup, re focus, and re target to continue their success and recoup any losses.  Then comes the time when you really need your teams to perform.  Sales, marketing, operations, finance, logistics…they will all play a key role.  If your people have slipped into the doldrums it will be increasingly hard to regain the skills and motivation you may have worked hard at in the past.

Now is the time, whilst you have the time, to invest in your people and maintain the momentum.  Keep them feeling positive, valued, driven and worthwhile.  Continue to give them the achievement factor they are capable of when they unite to perform.

How do I run a remote team building activity?

The first thing to do is get in touch with us to discuss what you’re looking to achieve.  Take advantage our 15 years’ experience in team building to advise on what style of experience will best work, and will achieve the right results.  It’s what we do, all day, every day.  We have our own teams and are running these events ourselves weekly.

Once we’ve worked with you on the right activity, we’ll do the rest.  Our team will communicate with you and all your team members with clear, concise, easy to follow steps to take part.  All our events are hosted virtually by the same event managers, compere’s and facilitators as we normally use.  They are the catalyst to bringing everything together with our back-end team taking care of the finer details.  You can be involved as much as you wish.  Either sit back, relax, let us do the work and take part with everyone else, or play a more pivotal role in the planning and delivery.
