Virtual Team Building Activities

Due to the current pandemic situation around the world, many companies have embraced remote working as the new normal, thus making their employees remote team members.

Though remote teams bring about greater flexibility for employees, this may result in them being less close to their co-workers due to the lack of face-to-face interaction, and not knowing the company culture.

This is where virtual team-building games or virtual team-building activities come into place! Organizing a virtual team building event is hard, but with our virtual team building tools, together, let’s overcome this virtual team building challenges!

Virtual Team Building Singapore activities are a great way for companies to have an online team-building session and a virtual team-building event.

Here’s a list of virtual team building ideas that are catered for remote teams:

1. Virtual Art Jamming (Canvas)

The Fun Empire has come up with a series of Virtual team building activities for remote teams to have online team-building experience. One of their activities would be the virtual Art Jamming on canvas.

Items for the virtual workshop will be delivered directly to the individual households of the participants on the actual day of the virtual session.

On the day of the session, the idea is to get everyone to work together to eventually combine each of their canvases to make a collage of paintings. Hence, they would need to work as a team and appoint someone as the “main leader”.

This person will then have to allocate the respective parts of the main painting that everyone is to do. But I promise it is not as complicated as it sounds. 

2. Virtual Terrarium Making Workshop
