How It Can Continue to Help Your Business
Team building can still be a part of your company culture – you just need to do it a little differently, is all.
The COVID-19 outbreak has dramatically changed how we work, and activities we used to take part in just aren’t possible anymore. However, remote team building can still play a part in your company’s path to success.
Working from home
In terms of how we work, the difference between now and the start of the year is stark. Gone are the days of freely socialising with your colleagues, or even sitting down for a cup of tea together on your break. Work has become much less social, thanks to the physical distance that needs to be kept and the fact that so many people are now working from home. It’s easy to assume that team building has become redundant now – but that isn’t the case.
Remote team building
During the rush to set up remote working and adjusting to a new way of life, team building didn’t really sit high on many people’s list of priorities. However, for some companies. It’s been part of their ethos ever since their team members began to work from home. Remote team building (aka an event carried out over a video conferencing platform) has become hugely popular, and it can be just as effective as an event carried out in person.
Making the new normal sustainable
Home working needs to be sustainable, and for that you need to maintain strong relationships between all members of staff. Just because they aren’t all working as physically close as they used to doesn’t mean that they can’t continue to connect. Remote team building allows your team members to work together, flex their creative muscles, and see how easy it can be for them to collaborate with their colleagues while they work from home.
Reaffirming your company values
Remote team building also gives you the chance to reaffirm your company’s values. It can be easy to lose sight of these while working at home, and it standards can slip. Nipping this in the bud as soon as you notice it will help you to deliver the same great products or services. People don’t realise just how effective team building can be for this, but you really will be amazed at just how much of a difference it can make. It’s so much more than just a little bit of fun!
