With the world on its head and virtual conferences becoming the new normal, we need to find ways to keep these conferences fun and exciting. This is where online team building games will come in especially handy.
Virtual team building helps not only boost morale, productivity, collaboration, and creativity but also create a sense of belonging and accountability.
Lucky for you, we’ve put together a list of 10 different virtual team building activities that will give your attendees a break and a fun way to get to know each other better:
1. The Rush-A-Way Virtual Challenge
The Rush-A-Way virtual challenge is an amazingly engaging concept recently voted #1 for helping strengthen team bonds. These virtual team building activities are designed to create meaningful connections as well as help members overcome experiential challenges as a team. A laundry list of both small and big brands swear by these challenges, including Fortune 500 companies like SAP, HP, and American Express.
For best results, participants are divided into teams that’ll compete against each other over various unique challenges. The main goal of this corporate team-building challenge is to enhance your team skills like collaboration, time management, problem-solving, and communication.
2. Stimulated Problems
Bummed about all the office outings, training camps, and corporate team building trips that got canceled? Stimulated problems can be a decent consolation. This concept offers a nice mix of work and play.
Simply provide your teams with some exciting yet fairly challenging work problems. To bolster team spirit, let the members work together to find a creative solution.
Pictionary is the perfect opportunity for your teams to showcase their artistic talents and have lots of fun while at it. And knowing that not everyone has a talent for art, it can make for some hilarious moments. The entire team has to be creative, active, and involved, which makes it a great way to get team spirit and conversations going.
4. Virtual Scavenger Hunt
Remember how fun and exhilarating scavenger hunts were when you were a kid? With virtual scavenger hunts, you can solve riddles and find the objects within your home. By the end of the hunt, everyone should tell an interesting story about the object.
5. Virtual Escape Room
Virtual escape rooms are web-based escape rooms conducted via Zoom and other platforms. Well, what better way to learn about your teams than by being locked together in an escape room?
6. Two Truths One Lie
Nothing says bonding more than getting to know each other. In this virtual team building game, everyone will give 3 statements about themselves – two are true, one’s not. It’s a classic game to execute through virtual platforms.
7. Build a Story
We live for stories, which is why Build-a-Story is going to be a riot on your next corporate team building event. The goal of the challenge is to construct a story around a certain top and using certain words as a team.
Going around in a circle each participant will contribute only one sentence to the story. This makes it great for improving collaboration, communication, and synergy.
8. Show and Tell
Go back in time and relive your glorious elementary school days. Show something special or with history and share some interesting stories
