Teambuilding Techniques That Build Rapport and Collaboration with Remote Teammates
Format: Digital Downloads
Working remotely is quickly becoming an industry standard, as recent Gallup studies reveal that the percentage of U.S. workers who have worked remotely (at least one day a month from home) has increased to 300% over the past 20 years.
And while there is little doubt to the perks and advantages in working remotely, managing employees who don't report to the office also comes with a set of unique challenges.
Remote teams may find it more difficult to establish rapport and trust without the daily personal interactions that employees in the office environment encounter. The differences and variety in hardware platforms and communication tools make decision-making and collaboration challenging. In addition to these interpersonal barriers, virtual teams must learn to manage different time zones and languages, cultural expectations and more!
