What exact activities help remote teams to bond?
Spending time together and having conversations about non-work-related topics is the easiest way to help remote teams to bond. According to science, breaking routines/changing the scenery, having fun together, working towards a shared goal, and having authentic conversations are the main things that help remote teams to bond and build trust.
Our team has Zoom fatigue, what can we do?
Changing the scenery and breaking routine is an important part of team building. Try out team challenges and competitions from Bondadil’s library that include more offline activities – for example, a photography competition or ask your team to pick up their computers and have the team building call from the balcony or from the kitchen to break the routine.
Why is virtual team building important?
Informal communication or “watercooler chats” don’t happen organically in remote teams, so it’s essential that the leaders create these opportunities and encourage non-work-related bonding. This helps your team to stay aligned, collaborate better, be more efficient, and lowers employee turnover.
How often should we organize these virtual events?
It’s a good practice to have a dedicated time slot for non-work-related virtual activities every week. If you are all working in the same time zone, then a Friday afternoon might be a good time to schedule that. If once a week doesn’t work for your team, try doing something fun at least every month.

Invest in virtual team building
You have to provide the space and opportunities for non-work-related bonding. What might come naturally in a regular office, has to be intentional for distributed teams.
