A Virtual Team is still a Team


Just like in the physical office, remote employees and coworkers like to bond about topics outside of work. Don’t forget to engage them in the same ways you do your in-person team members.

Here’s how:

  • Have team members create profiles of themselves. What are their areas of expertise, hobbies, and outside interests?

  • Deliberately discuss non-work related topics during team meetings. At WC, we start each team meeting by asking, “What’s one exciting thing going on in your life right now?”

  • Celebrate birthdays and holidays in virtual rooms (See how in our Virtual Party Post). 

How do you keep your virtual team members on board?
