What are virtual events?

With people working remotely more and more over 2020 and 2021, new ways of managing teams and working effectively have had to be introduced. In order to work effectively as a virtual team, it’s important that your employees still get to know how eachother work and bond effectively. This is why team building is still just as important when moving to an online platform. In this article, we explore the different types of virtual events and their importance to an effective virtual team.

What is a virtual event?

A virtual event is a session that can be organised by management or a team member to further improve the bond between their team members. It usually includes an activity of some form and can be hosted on a variety of platforms. Led by an expert host, entertainer or speaker, team members will work together or simply relax together as they undertake what’s involved.

Virtual events can vary from entertainment to education and are adapted to be held on Skype, Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Slack or any other software that your company may prefer. Thanks to event leaders embracing the digital aspect of virtual events, they are tailored to be just as immersive, entertaining and engaging as those held in person.

Over the past five years, remote working has grown by 44% and as a result, virtual events have been called upon to motivate employees. As mentioned in our ‘key communication challenges for virtual teams’ guide, giving team members the opportunity to connect informally is vital to avoid conflict, misunderstandings and people feeling left out.

Importance of team building

Here at KDM Events, we understand the importance of team building events. Whether you’re introducing a new employee, taking over a new virtual team, or simply looking to motivate your existing staff, there’s no better way to do it. With remote working bringing challenges such as an increased chance of loneliness and potential breakdowns in communication with it, they’ve never been more relevant.

By bringing teams together to work towards a common goal, bonds will be formed, and your company will benefit. Your employees will develop an understanding of how to best interact with each other. This can help them feel more comfortable approaching each other virtually. Your team will hopefully also get to know each other more personally, allowing them to support each other and reach out to each other if they need help.
