The virtual away day activity will help to promote a sense of community and company culture, even if your team is far apart.
We all know that away days boost morale and increase productivity, but what can you do when your team works from home? Even if your team is working remotely, it’s important that your staff remain happy, healthy and engaged in their work. The Virtual Away Day encourages colleagues to work together to score points, collaborate, and have fun.
Playing from any location, including home, participants will use their own devices to answer questions and complete challenges. Working in remote teams, you will need to decide upon the best answer to each question to win maximum points.
The aim of the game is simple… score as many points as possible before you run out of time! Team strategy is the key to winning this challenge; players must communicate and work with the other remote players in order to progress. All whilst racing against the ticking clock!
How is this activity run?
This activity is one of our Remote Hosted events and will be run from start to finish by one of our experienced remote facilitators via video link (Zoom is our preference but we can use other platforms too).
For this event, we will have one event host/facilitator for every 50 participants. They will remain on your call for the duration of the event to make sure everything runs smoothly and answer any questions participants may have.
This activity can be run as a face-to-face, virtual or hybrid event, depending on your preference.
Face to Face – The face-to-face option allows everyone to enjoy a fun and engaging team building activity, ‘face to face’ with their colleagues rather than via Zoom. Your event facilitator will still deliver a high energy remote briefing and results session via video link, manage the teams, and be available throughout your activity to ensure everything runs smoothly.
Virtual – Running this team building activity virtually, all participants can dial into the Zoom call from wherever they are, whether it’s at home or in the office, in the UK or abroad. Your dedicated event facilitator will welcome guests, deliver your event briefing remotely, split the group into teams, and run your event from start to finish. At the end of the activity, your facilitator will announce the results and ‘wrap up’.
Hybrid – With some physical ‘in person’ teams taking part from the office or a venue, and some ‘virtual’ teams dialling in from home or elsewhere, the hybrid solution is a great way to get everyone involved in your event, even if they can’t be there in the flesh. Just like the virtual option, your event facilitator will brief everyone via video link, arrange the teams, and run everything from start to finish.
