Of course, it will be harder for staff to bond when working from home. They might not have the face to face contact or chit chat that they usually would in the office. This is where online team building activities can come into play.
Team building activities help create a positive sense of team spirit, breaking the ice between employees who may not have met before and encouraging interdepartmental communication, which can prove essential to problem-solving in the workplace. There are countless ways to implement team-building activities into your workers’ regime.
You can undertake small, daily activities, or you could arrange a more extended session, dedicating half a day or a full day to team games, puzzles, and quizzes. These can be carried out over video calls, such as Microsoft Teams video or Zoom.
Here at Simply, we hold a weekly live catch up on Facebook Workplace. We try to make these as entertaining as possible; however, it’s always a great way to inform our colleagues what is happening within the business. Last week we held a quiz with vouchers being rewarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd; it was great to see everyone involved.
