Virtual Team Socials
If you have been successful with remote working so far, this means you have kept your company ethos and atmosphere going throughout your employee’s homes.
A lot have things have become uncertain this year and your working environment will probably never be the same again. Some businesses have made the decision to head back into the office, which means no more comfy pyjama bottoms and only walking a mere 10 steps to your ‘office’. But if your one of the businesses that has made the step of working from home a little more permanent then we’re here for you and your team.
Working remotely has become the new normal and it is definitely not something that we would have predicted for 2020. There are so many benefits to working from home but with the benefits of course come the cons. It can be a lonely working environment with no office banter, chats whilst your making a coffee or even just a brief hello when you walk into the building. One of the main issues is that face to face interaction becomes a distant memory for you and your team.
Keeping Connected with Your Team
When it comes to remote working you will find that managers and colleagues will be planning and organising as many individual and group meetings as possible. This is where video calling software like Zoom and Microsoft Teams have become extremely useful. Being able to organise video meetings have made it a lot easier for people to adapt and have a sense of normality still when it comes to working from home.
As well as the daily meetings that you have in place for your team, virtual team activities are also a great idea that will bring your team together in an environment that doesn’t have to be about work. Having social interactions in between all of the meetings and discussions are just as much of a vital part of remote working.
Why Are Virtual Team Socials Important?
Virtual team socials definitely play an important role in remote working and will be the thing that keeps your team together in between all of the usual working days. You could do something as simple as putting together a quiz to do over zoom on a Friday afternoon or create your own work happy hour where you can enjoy a quiz before the weekend starts! Or if you are wanting something a bit more organised we have some fun virtual team social offerings below.
