A virtual team can be a life saver for an online business owner. Your team members may be spread across the country or even the globe. When your staff work virtually, you don’t have activities that typical companies have like team-building workshops, happy hours and holiday parties. So if you don’t see each other in person on a regular basis, is there a way to make virtual staff feel like they are a part of a team? Absolutely!
I’ve worked in many virtual teams and the teams where we were engaged on an ongoing basis made it much more enjoyable and a place that I was excited to work for everyday. I was made to feel like I was on a mission with colleagues. I wasn’t just in a corner by myself plugging away day-after-day.
If your staff is engaged, chances are that they will be loyal and stay on your team long-term and stay loyal to you and your business.
Here are some quick easy tips that I’ve learned from working in some amazing virtual teams. All thanks to everything I’ve learned from them!
