FAQs - Virtual team building companies

How do you do team building virtually/with remote employees?

Many remote teams we talk to aren’t doing much team building to begin with. So the most important thing is to start, even if you’re not 100% sure what you’re doing.

Next, try to be consistent. Team building isn’t a one-off activity you run once a quarter. Set up a weekly or bi-weekly rhythm to invest in your remote team consistently.

The easiest way to do team building consistently is using Gomada. While team building event companies are a huge help, oftentimes they’re too expensive to work with regularly. But without any help, you’re on your own. 

Gomada fills that gap - it’s affordable to do weekly and takes little time from team leads. There are plenty other apps (and dedicated Slack apps) to help you do this.

What is virtual team building?

This one is straightforward! Virtual team building is the process of taking a group of individual people working alongside each other, and turning them into a team that works toward the same goal, knows each other, and accomplishes things that individuals alone could not.

What companies use team building?

To be frank, not many companies invest in team building. The ones that do (Google, Facebook, etc.) consistently outperform those that aren’t.
