Bored of the weekly Zoom quiz? Completed too many virtual escape rooms? This blog explores some of Bien Venue’s favourite virtual activities which offer something different to the standard virtual team building activities.
Virtual Activities: The Benefits
As companies continue with remote working, employees on furlough and the challenging environment we are living in; employee engagement and employee wellbeing remain as two fundamental topics for many companies in 2021.
Bien Venue believe that virtual activities provide fun, interaction and encourage connectivity. They are a great tool to connect remote teams too.
Here are Bien Venue’s top 3 benefits for Virtual Activities.
Technology plays a key role in how we connect with people at the moment and despite living in a time where we are connected remotely people are feeling lonelier and more isolated than ever. Where an online team build can give more freedom to employees to use their imagination and creativity to solve solutions, a virtual activity can deliver a sense of normality and offer a social outlet and promote a positive work/life balance.
Boost team morale
Keeping team morale high is key but can be hard during these challenging times. Virtual activities can act as quick pick me ups to increase moods or as part of the company’s culture. They can also make employees feel valued.
Virtual activities can encourage creativity and bring remote teams together. Building relationships, like people would do in the office kitchen, over lunch or on those post work drinks.

A highly interactive dance session from a professional choreographer, this is a fantastic activity for a virtual team away day, conference icebreaker or as a fun activity to get your team and colleagues up and moving.
Live Music Quiz
A music quiz with a difference! Hosted live by professional musicians, you will be treated to live performances as your musical knowledge is tested with the most popular tunes from the last 50 years. Not as straight forward as name of the artist and song title but the hosts would like to know: what is the next line? Who covered it? and when was it released?
The Live Music Quiz would suit being accompanied by a virtual cocktail and nibbles hamper.
These activities can be used for a virtual social, virtual team activity, virtual office party or as part of a virtual conference as an icebreaker, entertainment break or networking session.
