The New Virtual Reality Team Building Paradigm
In the current environment running team building safely can be challenging, however with the advent of remote teams and working methods it has increased the need to bring teams together to maintain culture, relationships and team motivation.
This is especially important for more extraverted team members who are missing the social connection and “social fix” they normally get at work through working with their colleagues.
Fortunately VR enables some excellent remote alternatives with virtual reality team building, allowing teams to interact and work together closely including more vulnerable staff who may have to avoid normal events and gatherings for the next few months.
The VRE team put on a phenomenal team-building afternoon in VR for us – my team haven’t been able to get together in real life for months due to COVID-19 concerns and it was amazing to be able to interact with each other this way (rather than another zoom meeting)! The team helped us build recognisable avatars so it really felt like we were together, walking amongst each other, laughing, chatting, and giving each other high fives! They also helped design a programme of engaging and fun team-building activities for us, and worked really hard to make the event a success. It was so nice to be able to provide such a unique and memorable experience for my team – they loved it.

The guys were absolutely incredible. They did an incredible job at making the VR as inclusive as possible! I have only had good things passed back to me about the activities, and the fantastic facilitators, with many people already requesting we bring it back next year!
A huge thanks to you and the team.

Totally nailed what we were looking for – we really felt like we were socialising together and we are all so so grateful to you and the whole team for making it happen.
Thanks a mill to you and the team!
We had a blast and it was a brilliant experience, the team loved it and we’re still buzzing from it one week on.
The session was really great! The whole afternoon was brilliant and provided a great team building event despite not being able to have face to face contact.
It was brilliant, thanks so much.
I found the experience very enjoyable and remarkably immersive, a great idea and well-executed.

First Steps For Your Virtual Reality Team Building Day
Types of Activity
We can run multiplayer problem solving VR activities with varying levels of difficulty to suit your cohort and also your objectives depending on how much you want to stretch them.
Teams always love creative activities where they get to express themselves and it can be a useful way to see teams’ strengths when using open ended activities that have more than one way of approaching them.
For team building focused purely on letting teams enjoy being together in a shared space we can run highly entertaining multiplayer VR experiences that allow them to have fun and feel connected to their colleagues after a period of team separation.
Or a combination of all three
These options (creative, problem solving) are not mutually exclusive with having fun and we often find having a shared purpose or an interesting problem solving or creative activity are often rated more highly (enjoyment) than purely games focused team building events.
