How to bond virtual teams?

With remote working becoming the norm in 2020 and 2021, more and more virtual teams are being put together. Whilst some virtual teams may be made up of staff that already know each other, it’s likely that you may be tasked with constructing a new team or adding members to an existing one. If so, it’s vital that you start thinking about how you’re going to get your virtual team to bond, as it’ll be vital for productivity and management.

The Importance of Team Bonding

In order to ensure that your virtual team is working at the highest possible standard, it’s vital that they bond with each other. This doesn’t have to be on a personal level, although that can help. Just developing an understanding of how each other work and building a rapport can dramatically improve efficiency and the communication between team members.

Usually, this can be developed through being in an office setting and observing how people interact. However, with the rise of remote working this year, it’s no longer that easy and extra steps must be taken to ensure that your remote workers are still feeling motivated, inspired and included in the team.

To do this, there are a variety of team building exercises that can be undertaken. From things as simple as a group call to signing onto external events there are plenty of options. In this article, we’re going to introduce you to a few of our favourite tips.

Create Space For Personal Chat

As we previously discussed, the removal of the office for virtual teams will take with it, natural chat that happens regarding people’s personal lives. It’s easy to see this as unproductive. However, research suggests that positive non-work related conversations help strengthen bonds and communication between employees.

With that in mind, it’s important that your employees have an appropriate space where they can catch up personally and get to know one another. This could be a separate Slack chat dedicated to non-work related discussions. However, if you’re worried about productivity and chats getting out of hand, organise coffee breaks over a video call each day where everyone can catch up freely for a set amount of time. This could even offer motivation by splitting up the day and giving people something to look forward to.

Get People Working on Shared Projects

Obviously, it’s important to note that not every employee will appreciate this or respond in the same way. Therefore, it’s important that you figure this out before doing it or respond quickly should it not work out. However, if your team is happy to work on shared projects, it can force them to find the best ways to work together whilst hopefully building a shared feeling of accomplishment that will bring them closer together.

This can be a great idea for a new employee coming into the virtual team. If you have a more experienced member of the team that is happy to tutor them, that 1-1 time can get them feeling involved from the start. Not only that, but your more experienced member of staff will be able to lead by example and instill the way of doing things into their work from the start.

Book a virtual event

Usually, a team building exercise would be the most common activity to enhance team bonding. However, these have been forced to change since more and more people started working from home. However, there are virtual events available that are specifically designed to enhance teamwork and provide lasting memories for you and your colleagues.

Hosted on the video platforms of your choice, virtual events are bringing innovative, engaging and creative team building activities to your screen. With expert hosts offering a range of activities over Zoom, Skype, Microsoft Teams and other platforms, you’re guaranteed to find something to suit your company’s taste. Capacity isn’t an issue either as some events can take up to 1000 people.

To give you a few examples of the types of virtual events that are out there, here are a few of KDM Events’ range.
