Online Team Building

Online Team Building or Remote Team Events are activities for teams who, while not physically in the same room, still have a need to connect in a meaningful way. Whether you’re an interstate team, working from home or self-isolating these events are designed to connect your team in a fun and engaging way, all from the safety of your own homes or workstations.

Using our preferred meeting app, Zoom, we arrange a meeting time for all participants to catch up ready to dedicate some well-needed time to play and laugh.

Working in an isolated environment has its pros and cons. There is less distraction if you don’t count your fridge but the biggest negative impact is lack of connectivity. Companies have a growing need to keep the team connected and motivated. Humans are social beasts by nature. Most of us need social interaction or distraction to stop us going stir crazy!

INVESTING IN CONNECTING

Investing in connecting a team is undoubtedly more important than ever! We have recently seen entire teams forced to work from home and increasingly more and more people discovering the ability to work remotely. Investing time in connecting your team is not only about reinforcing the sense of team and comradery but it’s about investing in wellness and happiness of colleagues that may find the lack of interaction personally challenging. The benefits of regular team catchups and meetings are tangible. But you are here because you want to go next level and engage them in a fun and interactive way. Our online virtual team building events will boost morale, retention and happiness Regular remote fun team events will offer the release your staff need so they can get on with work and still feel part of a nurturing team moving forward.

GROUP SIZES

Virtual Team Events and Remote Team Building Activities are tailorable to suit any group size. We work with small business teams, as low as six sometimes through to the largest global companies and create games to suit everything in between. The size of your group will dictate exactly how we run the game whether it be a single team event or part of a bigger full company tournament that might see different times or days set aside for different business division’s.

WORK AND MEETING APPLICATIONS

Most workplaces since the COVID-19 outbreak have invested in Meeting Apps to be able to continue team meetings with the most popular apps being Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Slack and Google Hangouts. Our preferred Application is Zoom, some of our events specifically use technical capabilities inside Zoom that are not always transferrable. But talk with us about your preferred platform and we can discuss limitations and adaptions.

DURATION

Typically, the majority of our team building activities and corporate team events last around 2.5 hours. It’s the perfect amount of time to get the most out of our games without being too long! Taking our events online does shorten the attention span of the average person, particularly focused on a screen so we have adjusted the duration of our events for maximum fun and engagement. Most of our online team events are at the 1-1.5hour mark. We can exercise a degree of flexibility with this so just talk with us about what you think is best for your team or what your time limitations might be! Our focus, as always, is ensuring the events are above all fun and so we’ll bring the fun for as long as team can keep up! We also suggest that teams stay online in the chat when we leave. To debrief. Laugh at the funny bits but also for someone in your team to tie it all back into working is a team and the importance of staying connected.

THE GENESIS

Our very humble beginnings were about getting teams out of the office to engage face-to-face. We’ve run literally thousands of these events but inevitably as we looked to innovate, the next evolution of events to offer were in the pipeline to take online. The Coronavirus has expedited this reality as face-to-face events over the shutdown period literally became illegal! We are super-proud of the company we have built up over the past 12 years and we have had many long-term clients come to us with how they can still use us to engage their teams. We love what we do. We love that people love what we do. We are excited and committed to offering the same wow factor and level of engagement with our online events.
