Team building looks different these days. With more people than ever working from home, it’s important to keep your team engaged even when you’re apart. In an office you can stop and chat with your colleagues in the hallway, gather together for lunch, and plan an impromptu happy hour together for some team bonding.
With so many people working from home, the serendipity of getting to know each other in and outside of the office is less likely. It’s important to maintain your company culture and sense of community during this time and without considering how to keep the culture strong, you could lose it, and potentially lose employees who don’t feel engaged or valued.
Remote team building requires more intention to foster a connected team but it’s worth the investment of time and money. A connected team and a positive company culture is more important than ever. A team that plays together, stays together, someone probably once said. Keep morale high and keep your team energized with these five key activities you can do for remote team building.
