VIRTUAL TEAM BUILDING OVERVIEW

Playworks' Virtual Team Building program addresses the new needs of companies working remotely during this pandemic.

Teams are adjusting through many different changes and new challenges brought about by the New Normal, including:

  • New Forms of Communication
  • Increased Self Management
  • Distributed Work Force
  • Re-organization of Groups
  • Physical & Emotional Distancing
  • Working From Home (WFH) Environment
  • Balancing Family & Work Requirements

These changes may be frustrating and the uncertainty may be stressful, but a synchronized, collaborative team with a positive mindset can not only weather through the storm, but thrive in it in 2021.
