Team-building activities are an essential part of the workplace. They help organizations find common ground, learn to collaborate, and establish trust. If your team is already working from home, you may take advantage of the benefits of team building without leaving the house by using virtual team-building activities on Zoom! 

Zoom is an excellent tool because it is free and can accommodate up to 100 people at once. You can all see, hear, and speak with each other on your computer screen, no matter how large or small your group is! This makes it ideal not only for virtual team meetings but also for virtual team-building games.

If you’ve been considering holding a virtual team-building event but need help figuring out where to begin, we’re here to help! The following are three of the most enjoyable Zoom virtual team-building games. These inexpensive options can be completed from the comfort of your own home. 

Best Team-Building Activities On Zoom

  • Cooking Class

Plan a few virtual team-building events, each with one team member teaching a cooking lesson. If it would be more comfortable for everyone, allow a professional chef to join the Zoom call and assist everyone with a final meal. After you’ve finished cooking, everyone can compare notes on the food and have some excellent conversation over dinner (and perhaps a drink of wine!)

  • Wine tasting

By signing up for a virtual wine-tasting session, you can bring your team together for a unique and VIP experience that can be both enlightening and interesting. These workshops are a sophisticated way to meet your coworkers in a low-pressure setting with nothing to do with work.

  • Happy Hour

This Zoom virtual team-building activity is similar to a virtual happy hour. Happy hour can be a terrific way for team members to get to know each other in a relaxed situation. You can turn happy hour into a team-building activity by offering everyone something to do together. Because this is a cocktail party, you could have everyone duplicate a video or assign one person to whip up a recipe and show the rest of the group how to prepare it.

Have some fun!

Working from home can be isolating, but team members who feel supported by coworkers are likely to be happy and perform well at work. Regular virtual team-building activities will demonstrate your care for their well-being.
