Making The Most of Working From Home
It’s worth investing in remote team building if working from home is set to become your new normal.
Working from home has become the new normal for people all across the UK. If you and your team are set to be working from home for some time yet, how can you settle into this new way of working? With remote team building, of course! Here’s what you need to know.
A new way of working
Three months after Boris Johnson imposed lockdown measures on the UK, our working lives have changed immeasurably. Many businesses have had to drastically change how they deliver their products and services, and online shopping has boomed. Regardless of their profession, if their jobs are able to be carried out remotely, people have found themselves working from home. This has been a necessary step to minimise the spread of COVID-19, but it hasn’t come without its challenges!
Not just a temporary measure
At the start of lockdown, it was unclear how long this new way of working would go on for. Would it all be over in 12 weeks? Or would this disease be something that we would have to learn to live with for a very long time? As time has gone on, it has become clear that it is very much a case of the latter. For many people, working from home is now a long term prospect rather than a temporary solution. So how can we make this new way of working, well, work?
Invest in your team
One of the most important things you can do is continue to invest in your team. When you’re not all working in the same space, it can become easy to become less attuned with each other, and to communicate solely on a professional level rather than trying to foster a more personal connection. How can you work well when you are working apart though? The answer is remote team building activities!
Remote team building
The first thing you should do is find a great team building events provider. Zing Events have been a firm favourite of UK businesses for many years. Famed for their indoor, outdoor, and evening team building events; they have now turned their attention to remote team building. You can take your pick from a wide range of events, and taking part couldn’t be easier either. Whether you’re a computer whizz or a total technophobe, you’ll be able to join in the fun with no issues.
How it can help
There are so many benefits of taking part in remote team building. It really boosts motivation and enthusiasm, which people can easily lose when working from home. It’s also a good opportunity for you to reinforce your company’s values and ethos – which, again, can be somewhat lost when you are all working away from the office. It also teaches people how easy it is to communicate and collaborate when working separately, which is vital to the success of any business in these times.
Arrange your event today!
If you and your team are set to be working from home for the foreseeable future, why not arrange a remote team building event? You’ll be amazed at just how much of a difference one fun activity can make!
