Whether you’re facing feet upon feet of snow or unpredictable bursts of rain, keeping in touch with your team or planning an event can be tricky.
Teamwork doesn’t need to suffer!
Don’t let stormy weather stand in your way. Use these three tips to get your team bonding on, rain or shine.
1. Plan your indoor team building event.
Indoor team building activities are a great way to emphasize themes of your conference, add spice to an event and ensure that your bonding goes off without a hitch. Snow weather? Storm clouds headed your way? No problem!
2. Sqwiggle it, just a little bit!
When the weather makes commuting a hassle (or even unsafe), your team can still be social and just as productive as they are in the office. Online collaboration software like Sqwiggle enables teamwork and fun around the office, even when you’re working form home in your pajamas. TeamBonding has been giving Sqwiggle a try during snowy days!
Sqwiggle is a persistent online workplace for your remote team to work together throughout the day, share everything important to your work in one easy to use app and create workrooms for chats that don’t need to include your entire team.
Sqwiggle interactions are 2 minutes on average (compared to 27 minutes for Skype) and the platform minimizes bandwidth consumption by taking still images every 10 seconds. Users can then click on any image to instantly activate live video and audio.
3. Have a plan.
Don’t just wait until bad weather happens. Make a plan for your team to work from home, move your event indoors, reschedule to a rain date…well in advance! Ask your team to add rain dates to their calendars, create necessary user accounts and bookmark online tools that will help them stay in touch.
Too late? That’s ok. We’ve all been there. Just get everyone setup and start creating your plans for next time you go head-to-head with mother nature.
