The KDM Guide To Virtual Team Building

Virtual team building is a fantastic way to build rapport within remote teams, as well as build on key skills such as communication and problem solving. In this article, we’ll look at the benefits of virtual team building and how to do it yourself within your own organisation. Read on to find out more!

The Benefits Of Virtual Team Building

Team building often falls quite low on the priority list in many businesses. In fact, a recent survey revealed that 65% of employees reported that they have never had a team building event or virtual event. However, the benefits of team building activities are wide-reaching, whether your team works remotely or face to face.

Believe it or not, remote workers do care about connecting with their co-workers, it is important to them and they would like more opportunities to get to know who they are working with. Team building gives space for colleagues to get to know each other and feel more comfortable communicating with each other. This can only be beneficial for everyone involved, making team members more productive and more likely to support each other through projects!

If you’re considering virtual team-building events and activities to pull together your remote team and improve workflows, read on to see more from our helpful guide.

How To Deliver Successful Team Building

Delivering successful team building can be tricky, and fear of the unknown when it comes to virtual events can be a big barrier to getting started. However, with the right amount of planning and a clear goal in mind, virtual team building events can be super successful and enjoyable for everyone involved!

A great place to start is to find the right team building event for your team and the goals you have for your team. For example, if you’re looking to improve communication between team members, you might look to organising a virtual escape room or quiz. Alternatively, if you’re looking for team bonding opportunities, online events such as virtual wine tasting or chocolate making can be a fantastic icebreaker that gets everyone talking and laughing together.

A key consideration here is time. How much time can you commit to team building activities? If you can only spare around ten to fifteen minutes a week, then you could look to incorporating mini-team building activities into your virtual team meetings. However, for maximum impact, we recommend carving out around 90 minutes or more to ensure your teams really get into the swing of team building!

Virtual Team Building

Team building comes in many different shapes and sizes, which makes them really versatile. Short team building activities can be delivered within a team meeting, or as part of a bigger virtual event where team building is the main focus. Below, we’ve detailed just a few ideas to help the creative juices flow when planning a virtual team-building event.

Virtual Team Building Ideas

Virtual Quizzes

Quizzes are universally loved. They’re competitive, fun and effective at getting teams working together towards a common goal. What’s more, they’re quite easy to organise and host and they work for teams of all sizes. Whether your quiz is general knowledge, Christmas themed or branded with your company in mind, these versatile virtual events are guaranteed to engage all participants and create quite a buzz.

Virtual Escape Rooms

Escape rooms have skyrocketed in popularity recently, particularly for team building. This is because they get participants thinking collaboratively and outside the box in order to reach a common goal – escaping. If getting everyone together for a physical escape room isn’t possible, then check out virtual escape rooms. These types of virtual team building events work for teams of all sizes and are sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

Virtual Entertainment

Who doesn’t love kicking back and enjoying live entertainment? This is still possible with virtual team building events. From your own private gig from the comfort of your own lounge to comedy shows and magicians, there are so many possibilities to try! These events are fantastic for team bonding and getting virtual teams talking, especially if they’re newly formed. They’re also great as a reward for a job well done or if you want to recognise the hard work of your team with a fun event.

Hands-On Activities

A common misconception of virtual events is that they aren’t as immersive for guests – but think again. Here at KDM, we offer hands-on virtual events from making chocolate and cocktails to virtual wine tasting. In all of these kinds of events, we will send participants everything required to get involved and provide all the necessary information to make each event truly immersive. We think these kinds of events are fantastic as they give everyone participating the opportunity to get hands on and potentially try something new.
