Remote working is now the new norm. Fostering engagement among remote employees is crucial for organisational success.
According to recent statistics 60% of remote workers feel less connected to their teams.
As well as focusing on the ‘work stuff’ it’s important to focus on team building activities, this is to ensure that remote workers can build relationships – good working relationships are the cornerstone to collaboration and better productivity and engagement.
Here’s some ideas to keep your remote team motivated and connected:
- Celebrate achievements (work and personal) and encourage recognition.
- Have virtual coffee/lunches.
- Host a session where everyone can talk about how they work at home.
- Have virtual competitions – you can still do a bake off, pumpkin carving, easter egg decorating or any other festival to celebrate.
Its often the simple things that make a huge difference.
