Remote Engagement

Tried and tested epic virtual fall 2021 games for your team

It is really tough for members of virtual and remote teams to engage with each other and to get to know one another. Getting together in person can be complicated or impractical, and that is why team leaders need to be proactive in finding and using all the tools and resources they can to foster a spirit of collaboration, comradery, and connection.

The quality and strength of these relationships can make or break a remote business, as they are vital to ensuring productivity and innovation. People who may have never physically met are being asked to rely on one another, and that can be very awkward. So, it is incumbent upon managers to help bridge that gap.  

That is why we at WFHomie.com have compiled this list of events and ideas, so that you can reap the dividends of a happier, tighter knit virtual team.

List of fall themed virtual events and activities

1. Campfire Barista

3. Thanksgiving Lunch

Thankful. Recognition. Appreciation.

You could host a virtual thanksgiving dinner for you and your team (bring your own meal) and you could eat together and chat about what each team member is thankful for in their personal and professional lives. They could bring up things like a helpful colleague or a supportive management team.  This could be a great addition to your thanksgiving virtual team building activities.

This is a beautiful way for your team to remotely foster relationships outside of work, and it will lead to a happier, more productive team.

8. Musical Bingo

Sing. Dance. Bingo!

Yes, you read that right! Musical Bingo is a thing. We have replaced your granny’s old paper cards with a virtual one with songs and lyrics instead of numbers. This kind of bingo has a hilarious DJ host, couch dancing, and lipsyncing. And yes, there are lots of great prizes. It's pretty rad if you ask us.

9. Flower Arranging Class

Crafty. Elegant. Homemade.

Your team makes great things happen everyday, so why not have your remote team make beautiful and bright things as part of your fall themed team building activities.

Our flowery host will teach your team how to make gorgeous flower arrangements while letting them in on principles of design. It is a functional, tactile experience that your team will love and enjoy as they learn more about each other, themselves, and, of course, flower arrangements.
