Due to COVID-19, there is a rising trend of staff working from home, which has greatly strained the relationship between them. This is an important issue to take note of as team cohesion can greatly influence the company. Therefore, one way to improve this situation will be to engage in virtual team building. Here are some reasons why virtual team building is so important!
1. Forge Meaningful Bonds
By participating in team-building activities, meaningful bonds can be formed between the staff, which aids in communication within the team. This allows the team to achieve better and faster results which will greatly benefit your company. For our Online Escape Room experience, it allows for participants to communicate and discuss strategies with their teammates in order to achieve the goal. This will certainly help to improve communication, which the team can bring back to the workplace.
2. Improve Productivity
When there is a strong bond within the team, they are aware of a common goal that they need to achieve. To achieve the goal, they are willing to encourage each other, spurring the team to achieve better quality results within a short period of time.
3. Alleviate Loneliness
Due to the pandemic, colleagues are not able to communicate with each other and this may lead to work loneliness. This may negatively affect one’s mental health and in turn, affect work outcomes. By participating in our Online Escape Room, participants can communicate with one another through a web conferencing platform (be it Zoom or MS Teams), which helps to alleviate loneliness. They get the opportunity to communicate with one another despite not meeting face-to-face.
Therefore, in view of this pandemic, it is important to maintain team cohesion and trust between each other to produce higher quality work. If you require help, do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
