Virtual Team Building | Using videoconferencing software to engage your remote team
Working from home is not a new phenomenon, multinational organizations have introduced such policies years ago. But during the Covid-19 pandemic, working from home has reached a new height, and most governments have made it mandatory, not only for large companies, but for small and medium sized businesses as well. At least for the time being or until the Coronavirus have been tamed.
Working from home may bring some advantages, mainly increased productivity, no (or less) commuting time,and a better work-life balance. However, what may have started with a euphoria among workers has grounded in reality.
Loss of social connection may be depressing, a misaligned management team may even struggle more to work as a team, and low morale seems a big problem for HR professionals and leadership consultants.
That's were virtual team building activities may be of use. Teams who work from home but in the same city may benefit the most from virtual team building because some activities or courses are inf fact hybrids, we start virtual, and meet in person as part of the exercise. Or some equipment and instructions are sent to the employees home to start a new team building project that is later shared vie videoconferencing app to all team members. For teams who are work from home in different cities or even countries may benefit from our virtual teamwork sills training workshops, like the The Five Dysfunctions of a team, The Six Thinking Hats, Strategic Planning with fun, or Creating a H2H Culture.
