Having remote teams that works well together has often been linked to higher productivity, increased employee engagement, and better work performance.

Even with remote work becoming increasingly more popular, teamwork remains essential to a company’s success. And in 2021, conducting team-building activities is still an excellent way to build stronger teams.

However, virtual team building activities are different from in-person ones.

To help you get inspired, we rounded up five fun online activities to connect your remote teams.

Let’s get to it!

1. Online Juke Box Bingo

A fun and familiar activity, Bingo is a highly interactive game that your attendees will get to enjoy together as a group. Furthermore, you can make it extra fun by mixing in some music and opting for a special jukebox bingo session.

In this game, guests mark their bingo card spots by choosing the title or artist of the song played by a professional DJ.

You have the flexibility to choose the genre of music for a customized experience which is sure to bring your team closer together.

Check out the video below to see this idea in action:

2. Dance Party for Remote Teams

One of the quickest and easiest ways to implement virtual team building activities is the online dance party.

Perfect for energizing your team and boosting their morale, an activity that focuses on dance is also an ideal ice-breaker, as it lightens the mood and encourages social interaction.

Furthermore, a dance party will allow your team members to see different sides of their personalities in a relaxed atmosphere, creating the perfect premises for increased communication and collaboration. 

How does a virtual dance party look like? This idea can be customized for your audience and event needs. For example, you can book a professional DJ to play music for your guests live as part of your event. The DJ can take on song requests, give shout-outs and encourage guests to clap their hands and try a few dance moves – just like he would at a regular party.

If you want to treat your team to a fun online dance party, we can help you set everything up! See how you can get started here.

3. Art Activity

When team members are allowed to interact in a creative context that is not work-related, they get to see each other in a different light.

This helps create a more genuine connection between them, resulting in better communication and teamwork.

That said, including an art-focused activity as part of your online event is an excellent way to create that creative context.

For example, you can opt for a mini virtual art class led by an expert in this field.

Guests will get a chance to test their art skills and collaborate to create an artwork that everyone will receive afterward.

4.Virtual Fitness Class

Looking for virtual team building activities to boost teamwork and improve your team’s health? Then you can’t go wrong with a fitness class.

As a group activity, a fitness class is a great way to break down communication barriers and facilitate team bonding.

Book a professional fitness instructor to guide attendees through easy-to-replicate moves and provide exercise modifications for all levels so that everyone feels 100% comfortable taking part in the class.

5. Who Is the Mole

A popular game worldwide, Who Is the Mole, is also an excellent activity for improving teamwork.

The rules are straightforward:

Everyone on your team will play a different character, and no one else in the group but themselves will know which character is.

Your guests will have a lot of fun working together to solve the mystery and uncover the mole, namely the person in the group who is trying to sabotage their work.

The goal is to find out whom the mole is before taking out the rest of the players.

Check out the video below to get a taste of what this type of activity would look like at your event.
