The importance of virtual team building in an ever-changing working world

Tuesday 4 August 2020

Over the past 5 months virtual technology has been at the forefront of everyones social and working lives. With that in mind is virtual team building the future? Here's what our friends at Wildgoose have to say!

“74% of UK employees want to keep working from home after the lockdown is over” but demand “more social contact with workmates” - Wildgoose Survey, June 2020


With recent global events challenging the traditional 9-5, companies all over the world are having to adapt their previous notions of a typical day at work. Whether it’s ‘work from anywhere,’ flexible hours, or considerations around family and childcare, office life as we knew it, is no more. Whatever the circumstances - companies and employees are having to adapt to this ever-changing environment where distraction and demotivation can present a real risk to productivity. 


Here at Wildgoose, we’re all about making sure teams and employees stay connected, motivated and engaged, wherever they may be, which is why we’ve developed a range of virtual team activities that spark connections, ignite conversation and help remote teams get together to collaborate and have some fun. With six activities to choose from including;


  • virtual murder mystery - Take part in a virtual Murder Mystery like no other. Join forces with your colleagues and become lead investigators to solve a murder!

  • virtual away day - Our virtual away day will help to promote a sense of community and company culture, even if your team is far apart. 

  • virtual escape room - A highly engaging and experiential team event to develop creative problem solving, logic, teamwork and communication skills through a virtual escape room concept.


There really is something for everyone!


With the current outlook on remote working looking like it’s here to stay, investing in the happiness and engagement of your team should still be at the top of your priority list. In order to retain a happy workforce both with existing and new recruits, employers should be thinking about virtual team activities that not only provide a way for teams to connect and socialise but that also provide purposeful outcomes to help boost motivation, increase productivity and ultimately impact the bottom line.
