Virtual team building is not new and thanks to COVID more organizations and individuals are starting to see the benefits of online organizing. Basically, these events hold a similar purpose to traditional team building, the main difference is where these events are hosted.
Why is Virtual Team Building Important?
Why is virtual team building important? Well, it allows groups to stay connected through mediated spaces like Zoom, Google Hangouts, and FaceTime. While individuals are not in the same tangible space these online alternatives allow groups to feel connected while being apart.
Research finds that team building benefits the organization and individual employees, while it increases morale company-wide.
