We're still enjoying late summer weather, but as of September 22 summer will it will have officially finished. And with fall just around the corner, it’s time for your organization to start planning your annual festive team building event.
You’ll want something exciting, unique, professional and completely in the spirit of the holiday giving season. This year, however, there is one difference. Your employees are likely working from home, and you are limited with the number of people you can bring together in one group.
What if someone told you that was wrong? What if you can bring all of your employees together and access the same benefits that come with a physical team build event? That’s where virtual team building comes in.
What is a virtual team building event and is it as beneficial as a physical event?
Virtual team building events make use of today’s innovative communication platforms, such as Zoom, to bring remote employees together in a ‘virtual environment’. Despite not being physically together, virtual team building events are just as beneficial for both your employees and organization as a physical event.
That’s because the best virtual team building events are designed in a way that make your employees forget that they aren’t sitting in the same room. Virtual team building events should be designed to be interactive, ensuring every one of your team members are engaged and participating throughout.
Virtual team building events have all the same benefits for your organization as traditional team building events, including:
- Improved employee communication between staff, departments and managers.
- Increased productivity.
- Better employee morale
- Increased motivation.
- The ability to identify leadership qualities in your staff members.
- Increased confidence levels.
- The encouragement of creativity.
- Improved mental health and wellbeing.
- Better trust and respect among your team.
- And much more!
Why you should include a charitable twist in your festive event
There’s a wide range of team building events that your organization can host for your employees, but, with the season of giving coming ever closer, why not plan a team building event with a charitable twist?
By running a charitable event this holiday season your organization will receive all the benefits of a normal team building event, with the added benefits that come with a corporate social responsibility (CSR) program.
In fact, team building events with a charity twist will improve your company culture, improve employee retention, enhance employee engagement and performance, boost morale and empower your staff members to give something back to their local community.
