Do You Know About Virtual Team Building? | OpenGrowth

Building a successful team is about more than finding a group of people with the right mix of professional skills. Hiring the right people is the most important part of building a strong team. But managing a team is not that simple. Leaders have to play a far more hands-on role to make sure the group works well together and remains focused on the right priorities. 


What is a Virtual Team?

A virtual team is one where employees have no centralized office. Instead, employees come together on a virtual platform—a company intranet, a messaging platform, or an email-only workflow. This differs from regular work-from-home policies, where team members can choose to work remotely for a day or two each week. Virtual teams do not come into an office to get work done—they either work from home, work from anywhere, or use a co-working space.

Team building can be tougher when working virtually and it also tough to keep your team engaged during virtual meetings. In a virtual team, members can not work on an idea side-by-side, share the same space, and have some unofficial hours together. This might decrease their personal connection and hamper the overall team activity.
