With many offices now adapting to remote and hybrid work settings, companies are now struggling to find ways of bringing their teams together.

This new workforce norm has changed the concept of team building — teams can’t come together as easily, attend breakrooms, or even take part in traditional in-person company events.

But who’s to say these teams can’t still socialise, have fun, and engage with each other?

Virtual team building easily solves the issue of teams working remotely. It makes them feel as tight-knit as on-site teams, while introducing a whole new and unique experience.

In this article, we’ll be looking at the best virtual team building activities in Dubai.

    #1 Kahoot!

    Want to bring out your team’s competitive spirits?

    Do it with a fun trivia activity where you need both speed and accuracy.

    Kahoot is an online platform with quiz-style games, such as multiple choice, to test your knowledge in a fun and engaging way.

    You are given different categories of questionnaires to choose from, but you also have the option of customising and creating new quizzes from scratch!

    To play the game, participants can either play individually or be grouped into different teams.

    The host then shares their screen to flash the questions, while players answer through their own devices.

    The catch is, the questions have a time limit.

    The team or player who answers fastest gets the highest score while those who answer last get less points.

    This is great  for getting your team excited and engaged, despite meeting online.
