Purpose Of The Event

What is your end goal with this event? Ask yourself whether you want a particular section of virtual teams to work together on your eventual projects? In that case a virtual team mixer is all you need. However, if you want something deeper, like maybe get the new team members to work with the older team members to get on job training completed faster, in that case the event will need to be more elaborate. In short the purpose of the event will set its actual tone.

Take Suggestions From Your Team

If you are going to have some activities in the virtual team building event, it is always a great idea to send out a mass email beforehand to get some ideas directly from the team that will be participating in the event. This way you will have activities that suit every taste. Also, it will make the team feel more included in the company’s decision towards their activities.

Hire A Professional

Sometimes getting a professional to show you the ropes makes it easier for you to avoid obvious mistakes in organization. You can also get some handy tips from the experience to better manage your team in the future.

Ultimately once the team event is over, do not forget to collect the feedback from the individual members. The only way such an event can help your company grow is if you use it to keep learning how to condition your existing team as well as be prepared for new members who join you in the future.
