10 Team Building Games For Managers Of Remote Teams
You're a manager whose company has just transitioned to being fully remote. The change is exciting, but also a little terrifying. Working remotely is notorious for not having the same level of sociability as working in the office. Many remote workers fear that by working remotely they are going to suffer from isolation and loneliness. And managers, like yourself, worry that their team isn't going to be connected and/or engage in non-work related activities.
One of the best things that a manager can do to keep their team connected and engaged in a remote environment is by playing remote friendly games. Online games are naturally designed to be played remotely, so they are a great and easy way to get your team together to do something fun and competitive.
