5 Benefits of Hosting a Virtual Event for Your Team

Benefits of Hosting a Virtual Event for Your Team

Written by Tim Grable

Virtual team building activities are much different from the ones made in-person. For starters, not having everyone into one room means your message may not reach everyone’s ears.

However, what might seem like a downside can be used to your advantage, as a virtual event can have many benefits for a team working remotely.

And in this following article, we will explore a few reasons why you might want to try to organize one for your team in the future.

1. Virtual Events Don’t Cost as Much

Both in terms of monetary investments and how much time you need to spend to set it up, the cost of organizing an online event is only a fraction of what’s necessary to set up a live one.

The need to rent space or to book any offices is no longer a concern, as everyone tuning in does it from the comfort of their own homes.

There’s no more need for physical paraphernalia, as everything can be streamed directly to everyone’s screen. For example, as all presentations will be digital, there’s no more need for flyers, notebooks, whiteboards, projectors.

All the money you save can instead be used to enhance your company’s online presence or infrastructure, to suit up for organizing better events in the future.

2. Reinforce the Bond Between the Team Members

With everyone working remotely, it’s understandable that a feeling of alienation may set in, as workmates are no longer spending as much time interacting socially.

For situations like these, a virtual event is what your team needs to get together more often and sometimes even rekindle feelings of camaraderie, which otherwise get lost when everyone’s at home.

You can organize a more lighthearted virtual activity such as a game session to exercise teamwork and employee cohesion. Although people may be hesitant at first, trust us that after a few sessions, they will be asking for more.

3. Events Are More Impactful

E-mails and daily updates can only do as much as send out the basic information, but they frequently lack the impact an event might have.

For example, let’s say an important milestone for the company has been reached. You wouldn’t want to communicate this achievement through an e-mail, as it won’t carry any emotional weight – and the team won’t feel the same sense of accomplishment.

Even something as an online meetup or role call is enough to ensure everyone is on the same page with what’s going on.

4. The Team Will Be More Productive

Being at home for extended periods of time leads to monotony, and as the team gets bored, this will eventually be reflected in the quality of their work.

Hosting an online virtual event when everyone is working remotely ensures their experience is diversified.  It also helps to keep burnout in check – there are many ways in which an event can help them come to work the next day with renewed energies.

For example, hosting a presentation with an experienced professional as a host can help the team learn new things they can apply to their work or a social event can help rekindle competitiveness between the coworkers.

5. Bring Everyone Together with a Team-Building Workshop

Consider hosting a virtual team-building juggling workshop for them!  That’s right, Jeff Civillico can teach everyone in your organization how to JUGGLE… well, at least he can try 🙂 All that’s required is 3 pairs of socks, a bit of space, and a good attitude!

This is a great way to bring everyone together and boost morale while working from home.  And best of all, this team-building workshop can be opened up to families as well.  Bond with your team, bond with your family, learn how to juggle and have some FUN!

“Jeff Civillico’s team building workshop was probably one of the best investments our organization has made for itself in a long time. Jeff’s energy really brought out the best in my management team!” 

– Lawrence Barnard, Nevada Market President, Dignity Health

“If someone were to say to me ‘hey you’re gonna have a juggler entertain and do a workshop’ I would have said ‘no way, no how’ because my perception is that it’s not going to be something that inspires, or ignites fire or excitement. Totally wrong. It was incredible!”

– Jeff Rust, Corporate Alliance, Co-Founder & CEO

“I had the good fortune of planning our corporate team building event with Jeff, and he was so gracious and accommodating in how he interacted with our team. He taught us how to juggle! I’m no expert, but I’m 1 ball up from what I was before 🙂 We LOVED Jeff! Highly recommended!”

– Jenifer A. Isa, Leisure Sales Manager, Caesars Entertainment
