As the coronavirus pandemic rages on, many of us continue to work remotely. But with all this physical distance, team members can feel emotionally distanced, as well, leading to reduced productivity, communication and team cohesion. Therefore, virtual team-building is essential.
So, what is virtual team building? It is a way to bring remote teams together during this time of social distancing and allows the entire team to reconnect with one another. It also helps re-establish meaningful relationships that leave all team members feeling more valued and less isolated.
Virtual team building consists of several strategies, games (such as icebreakers) and activities (such as cooking) that are meant to bring more human interaction to the remote workplace. These strategies lead to closer-knit teams and better collaboration among team members.
Ultimately, virtual team building not only improves team effectiveness, but it is also a fantastic way to boost motivation and morale during this time.
