The Best Virtual Team Activities for 2024

Bringing your staff together is important, but we understand that sometimes there’s obstacles in the way of getting a team away day in the calendar. Virtual team building activities make connecting that little bit easier for you and your colleagues!

We’ve listed a selection of the best virtual team building ideas, with options to suit any workplace goal or culture.

What are Virtual Team Building Activities?

Virtual team building games are any activity that is enjoyed online by multiple staff membes for a common purpose. These activities are designed to be fun, and can range for competitive to collaborative depending on the company wishes. When you organise a remote team building day, use platforms like Zoom or Microsoft Teams to connect with colleagues near and far.

The beauty of a remote team event is that you have a lot more freedom than a traditional away day. As a lot of the games and resources are online, you can personalise many team activities to include your branding, references to your business and more. Also, plenty of the virtual team building activities available include a tangible kit sent to each participant's house or venue for a memorable activity.

Perks of Virtual Team Building Include 

  • Accessible to colleagues worldwide

  • Cost effective as you don’t need to hire a venue or organise food and drink

  • Icebreaker questions for new colleagues who might not have met face-to-face

  • An effective way to build working relationships

What are good Virtual Team Building Activities

Any effective virtual team building event needs to be well-organised, inclusive and enjoyable for everyone invited. Below are a few remote experiences that are examples of good virtual team building activities for these reasons.

Virtual Spy School 

A perfect example of an eye-catching event with a fun theme, you’ll turn into the ultimate spies on a mission for success – all through an easy-to-use app. See more »

Virtual Around the World

The Virtual Social

Can Team Building Activities Fit Any Budget?

If you browse online, you’ll find a few free team building games that you can throw into your day for 20 minutes or so. On the surface, this sounds great – however this kind of activity has proven more disruptive than effective. We’ve worked to curate a variety of fun virtual team building activities that are affordable for teams of two people to two hundred people, and everything in between.

A lot of the resources you need for a virtual team building event are sat in your office or at home already. Each participant needs a means to join, which could be either a computer, phone or tablet. A way to hear each other is a must through speakers or headphones, and a webcam is handy so you can see each other whilst communicating.

By keeping online, you don’t need to worry about hiring a big venue to accommodate your events or refreshments to keep your staff happy. From our side, the cost of virtual team building activities is lower per person as the support from us can be done remotely.

How to plan a Virtual Team Building Event 

Planning your own virtual team building ideas is easy once you have a few necessary resources in place.

  1. A smartphone, tablet or computer per person participating

  1. A webcam and audio solution

  1. Access to the Internet or 4G

  1. Video conferencing software e.g. Zoom and Microsoft Teams

  1. Time!

Why is Virtual Team Building Important? 

Just like any team building activities, team building activities virtually will bring people together – even with the barrier of distance. Prioritising time with your staff that doesn’t include project deadlines and or important meetings means you can build stronger team bonds and get to know the people you work with.

This is especially true if your team work from home or in different offices around the world. Team building for virtual teams regularly can combat feelings of loneliness, boosting morale and making your workplace happier and healthier.

Benefits of Virtual Team Building Activities:

  • Boosts team morale

  • Helps reinforce a positive work culture

  • Increases job satisfaction

  • Builds team culture

  • Combats isolation from remote working

Choose Funktion Events for your next Virtual Team Building Activity 

Event planners will save you time and money, but why choose us specifically to help you successfully do team building virtually?

Tried and Trusted

Funktion Events has been trading for over 13 years. We organise thousands of events each year for a variety of companies. From big, global organisations to small local traders and everything in between.

Connecting Global Teams 

Even before recent global events, organisations leveraged online games to foster teamwork and streamline communication among remote teams. This trend continues with even greater momentum today, thanks to an increasingly diverse range of virtual team-building activities available in the market.

Boosting Mood & Outlook 

It’s easy to get that sinking feeling when home alone and working. Make sure the lines of communication are open, colleagues are talking daily, and people’s mental health isn’t suffering in silence through regular games and activities.

Building Teams Online Itinerary 

Unlikely attributes can rear their heads in times of confusion, and you never know what team spirit can come out of remote working. Build on these feelings and instil a sense of “we’re in this together”!

Increasing Productivity 

Sometimes, workers can feel strange and unproductive when sitting right next to their beds or in their living rooms. Creating daily, weekly or monthly remote team activities gives everyone something to look forward to in the work week.

Preventing People from Feeling Isolated

If you’re the event organiser, it’s likely your responsibility to make sure all employees aren’t feeling isolated. This can be difficult when everyone is scattered. Make your job a little easier with a fun virtual team event.Shape

As a business we have completed a few different online events and this has to have been the best so far. It felt like a purpose built activity than just a zoom call with background images. Hats off to Funktion Events for creating this.

The event was a lot of fun! It has great feedback from the attendees, especially those with children who ‘helped’ make the truffles.

All ran smoothly. Only thing – a little confusion as to melting a lot of milk chocolate, but only using it for decoration and not making milk truffles too!
