How to Keep Virtual Teams Connected

Due to the events of this year, more and more people are finding themselves working remotely as a part of a virtual team. With virtual teams having the potential to be dispersed nationally or even internationally, it’s important to know how to keep your team members connected.

Keeping Connected

If managed well, virtual teams can bring an array of benefits for your organisation. A reduction in wasted time, a better work-life balance, lower business costs and increased recruitment possibilities have made remote working a very attractive prospect. However, if you are thinking of committing to virtual teams or you have found yourself in the early stages of setting them up, it’s vital to prioritise keeping them connected.

The office provides a natural environment to discuss work and when appropriate, personal lives. This is harder to replicate in a virtual environment. Whether it’s to combat people feeling lonely and left out or to co-ordinate the work of your team, keeping them connected will drastically improve your results. We’ve put together the following guide to help get you better connected.

Provide the Right Technology

It’s amazing what technology can do these days and the most simple to use programmes can improve your team’s communication to no end. Programmes like Skype, Slack, Zoom and Microsoft Teams can be accessed on most computers and laptops. However, if your company specialises in a field and requires certain software, you will need to make sure that your remote working virtual team has the capability to access it.

One of the biggest advantages of having a virtual team is reducing wasted time. However, if your team is having to struggle to replicate their usual standard of work whilst at home, you’re not achieving this benefit.

Have a Shared Schedule

Keeping to a tight schedule is often more important for virtual teams than those in the office. As a manager, it’s vital that you have a clear idea of what your team is doing. However, it can be just as important that they have an idea of what each other are doing too. The team may be working on a campaign together or require access to information regarding who is responsible for an account.

In order to improve this, there are plenty of online calendar programmes available to help connect your team’s work. Also, Google Docs allow for work to be shared between team members easily. Have somewhere to make meetings, workloads and important project details available to the whole team. Just by introducing this, you could drastically reduce the amount of time your team may waste looking for or asking you for information that could be made readily available.

Online Calendar'

Regular Meetings

Virtual Teams do tend to enjoy a better work-life balance. However, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t check in with them as much. It’s important to reach out to your staff and make sure that they aren’t suffering silently with a large workload.

To help avoid this, make your calendar visible, and be approachable for any issues that your team may want to approach you with. Schedule regular meetings and one-to-ones with your team to find out how they’re getting on with projects too.

It’s even easier for virtual teams to hide it when they’re struggling so make sure to give them every opportunity to tell you. Your staff need to be talking to each other too. A group video call can be a good way to keep everyone in touch.

Maintain Motivation

In the office, morale can be boosted by people’s presence, an event or a team building activity.

Studies suggest that one of the biggest problems faced by virtual team members is the feeling of being left out or being isolated. We shouldn’t underestimate how important face-to-face contact can be to improving how you’re feeling.

There’s no reason why this can’t still apply to your virtual teams. Thanks to our wide selection of virtual team building events, there are a multitude of ways that you can get your virtual team ticking. With exciting themes such as virtual escape rooms, online quizzes, virtual gin tasting and your own personal virtual comedian, you won’t struggle to find the right event for your team.
