However hackneyed a phrase it may be, teamwork does make the dream work. But it can be difficult to make this a reality when you’re working remotely.

This means it’s super important that you put real effort into holding team bonding activities, so you can find some that everyone enjoys and gets something out of.

This article gives you three great ideas, from playing poker at top live casinos to having a regular pub quiz with your remote colleagues.

All you need to do is read through them, find out which ones your team likes best, then get started.

Have some fun by playing poker games at the best live casinos

Few games have the depth and breadth of appeal of poker.

It’s enjoyed by all sorts of people all across the world. They play it in online card rooms, at live casinos, and via user-friendly gambling apps. And they do so with good reason — it’s sociable, interactive, and a lot of fun, ideal qualities for a remote team bonding activity.

You may have reservations about poker being too hard for people to learn. Have no fears.

You can learn the basics of Texas hold’em in a matter of minutes. Indeed, it’s said that you pick up the key rules in just five minutes, then spend the rest of your life trying to reach perfection by trying out different strategies. The below video explains the basics.

Now you and your colleagues know how to play the game, you just need to put these lessons into practice and playing games at the best live casinos is the ideal way to do it.

This is because live casino poker games are the closest thing you can get to the real experience of playing house games or in a land casino. The reason for this is they have real dealers and real players — something of a novelty when you’re playing remotely.

Finding the right site is important. There are many choices and each casino you’ll find has its strengths. Your decision should be based on a number of factors, but the most important is that the casino has the right games and that they’re user-friendly.

For instance, 888 is highlighted by many respected sources as being great for live poker, but PlayOJO, and LeoVegas are also good options. So, try a few of these sites and see which one(s) you like best.

Build a website together to support a cause you care about

Building a website might sound like a horrible way to get your remote team to bond — more work to connect with my colleagues? No thank you.

But hear me out. Creating a new site is a pastime that allows you to learn new skills and have some fun while you’re doing it.

There are many great guides out there to help you build a website. So I’ll share one of the best with you and leave it with you to pick up some tips from it.

What I’ll offer in addition to the lessons from that video is that you need to pick an idea that you and your remote team all care about. A perfect example is to promote a charity, one you collectively believe in.

It’s important to let people try out new things.

For example, it might be that the IT team wants to try its hand at writing content. Or the content team may wish to develop their website building skills. Variety is what keeps this activity fresh, and such a rewarding way to bond.

Combine fun & learning together with a regular pub quiz

There can’t be many remote activities that have experienced such a rise in popularity as that seen by pub quizzes since lockdown was introduced. And it’s not by accident.

Pub quizzes are sociable, competitive, and can be used to provoke conversation — all great qualities for a team-building exercise for your remote workers.

An ideal way to get the most out of pub quizzes is to circulate the hosting, so everyone gets a chance to be the quiz master.

Not only does this make it easier for people to feel like they’re a part of the activity, but it also keeps the questions fresh by mixing up the format.

Zoom is the platform of choice for many online pub quizzes and there’s plenty of great advice available to help you host a Zoom pub quiz.

Once you’re happy you know what you’re doing, take the lead, and be the quizmaster for the first one. That way you can ease everyone else into the activity by showing them what they need to do to host their own quiz.

Playing a live poker game, building a website, and holding a regular pub quiz are three great bonding activities for remote teams.

They require various levels of investment (both time and money) so it’s a good idea to put it to a vote before you decide which one(s) you’re going to use.

So, create a poll, put it to your team and start to bring your remote workers closer together.
