Why is virtual team building important?

Virtual teams can feel very lonely. Remote employees are typically focused on their own silo, and rarely interact informally with their peers and managers like they would in a regular office.

Meetings in particular can feel very transactional and dry. This is one big disadvantage of virtual teams – you lose what’s called the “water cooler” effect in a regular office, where team members bump into each other at the water cooler and talk about things unrelated to work.

Although such minor interactions can be trivial, their impact is quite significant on team performance. They have a tremendous positive effect on overall team morale and happiness.
