TEAM BUILDING IN THE AGE OF WFH: CAN VIRTUAL EVENTS HELP?

Article contributed by our tech knowledge partners Buzznation

For months now, teams around the world have been split asunder, forced to work from the safety of home. Away from colleagues and friends, and away from the usual working environments of offices and studios that we always thought was the glue that holds everyone together.

It’s hard to underestimate the importance of team-building – something that often seemed difficult to get right even when we were all together every day, let alone when a team is dispersed over a wide area.

Activities and conversations that take place alongside the work are an important part of team building, and not being physically together can be a major hindrance.

WFH can take its toll. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella recently remarked that permanently working from home can have a negative impact on social interaction and mental health.

It’s simple to go online to find ideas for activities that can help with remote team building. But the fact is, most of them won’t hold the interest and attention of team members in the same way as face-to-face events, meet-ups and socials.

Virtual events can help to overcome this problem. Through these events, you can execute your team-building activities interactively, seamlessly, and in a way that’s fun.

Team building through virtual events uses technology, emotional intelligence and management skills to bring everyone together. In fact, these events have quickly become a staple, given their scalability, engagement, and effectiveness at improving our ability to work with each other to overcome challenges and hit goals.
