How to build a high-performing team during Covid-19 curfew.
If working from home has not become commonplace, with the coronavirus pandemic that spread around the globe in the 1st quarter of 2020, the concept of remote office has certainly spiked interest among the business community in Bangkok and around the world.
Working from home has many benefits, including increased productivity, less commuting stress, and a better work life balance. It is estimated that the average worker spends 2.5 hrs. per day in Bangkok traffic jams. Time that can better be spent at home, with family, friends, doing sport and yoga, to relax and to enjoy life.
One of the most prevalent pitfalls of working from home is the loss of social connections. Many employees feel alienated and detached.
To increase connectivity, boost morale, improve teamwork skills and energize your team we have summarized 30 of the virtual team building activities for a remote workplace.
70. Charming farming
This team building activity for remote workers is based upon the trend of urban organic farming. Before the start of the event, team members will receive a parcel in their post box.
The simple fact that all communication has gone online in the past 20 years, your employees will feel excited to receive a physical packet. Excitedly, they open the package to find beautifully wrapped seeds, pots, soil and organic plant nutrients, together with an instruction sheet of what follows. Participants plant their seeds, take a video and 10 days later, the first virtual team building event will take place. There will be a total three events, the first after embryogenesis, the second when the plant is half-way developed, and the third when the plant has produced flowers, fruits or is ready to harvest.
