Remote Team Building

Working remotely has been around a long time before Covid19. But, the numbers of remote workers since COVID 19 has increased significantly. Referenced from Indeed, 8% of employees worked remotely full time prior to COVID-19, this number quadrupled to 35% by May 2020. Many workers who worked out of an office building either have returned to the same space, work hybrid or 100% remote which includes, at home, a co-working space or even a local coffee shop to name a few.

Remote workers use various video platforms like, Teams or Zoom for meetings. Whether you are new to remote work or experienced, you may feel disconnected. When I worked from home with one of my jobs I did not feel very connected with teammates that were all over the world. Sure, we laughed about some things, and admired what someone was eating for lunch, how they dressed or fun things we did on the weekend. But bonding through fun virtual activities on a regular basis would have made a difference. Employers need to be a big part of this as well as engaging with teams. According to Zippia, there are expected to be 36.2 million American employees working remotely by 2025. Remote jobs now make up 15% of work opportunities in the US.

Employee and employer bonding can mean the difference between a strong team in a positive work culture and an unhappy grind everyday.
