Importance of Virtual Team Building during lockdown

Updated: Jun 29, 2020

With the onset of the nationwide lockdown due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, a lot of organizations have had to shift their mode of operation to a work-from-home model. This sudden shift has resulted in virtual teams monitoring a task over electronic media, which has invariably reduced human interaction.

Virtual Team Building tends to reduce the differences among the members of a team, thereby bringing them closer and inducing a sort of homogeneity in the way they look at things.

Virtual Team Building brings in enthusiasm into the members of the team, and with an optimistic and positive approach, they feel more inclined towards wholeheartedly completing the task assigned to them. For a lot of employees who live alone and don’t have anyone to talk to, except maybe for the work colleagues, loneliness can inevitably creep in. And this can adversely affect the mental health of the person. When your employee is not emotionally fit and agile, his/her effectiveness is bound to reduce.
