Kick Off the New Year With Remote Team Building Fun

Women having a remote meetingThinking about ways to kick off the new year at the office? Whether you’re getting ready to welcome the new hires, introduce team members to new project teams, or just looking to start the year with some fresh team building, Breakout IQ is ready to help. Consider these three things when planning ahead for your new work year: using more innovative ways to deliver new year goals that will motivate your team, pack a punch with a unique onboarding process to introduce new team members, and provide social opportunities throughout the year for your team members to meet and get to know each other better. 

Achieving these three things is easy, when you incorporate remote team building experiences with Breakout IQ. Try out something fresh like a virtual icebreaker or one of our new game show inspired events: Virtual Office Feud and Name That Price!

Virtual Icebreaker for Remote Teams

Women having a remote meetingAn icebreaker can effectively warm up your teammates making them more comfortable to interact in your meeting. When employees are engaged and involved, they are more likely to absorb the information you are sharing.

Break the virtual ice at your next New Year meeting with our Get to Know Me icebreaker. Our Get to Know Me icebreaker has four rounds of games for your team to talk, share and learn about each other. Rounds include a scavenger hunt, interview style questions, and a lightning round to reveal what they have learned about each other. Benefits of this virtual icebreaker:

  • Professionally hosted
  • Supports up to 300 team members
  • Flexible scheduling
  • Maximum fun without the usual awkwardness
K. Salazar says… “Ava and Marcia were great hosts and this was a wonderful team event to get to know your coworkers; everyone really enjoyed it.”

Game Show Inspired Team Building Events

For meetings designed solely for team building, one of our game show inspired events is a perfect fit. Game shows are easy to follow and all inclusive team building events. We offer two high energy virtual game show experiences: Virtual Office Feud and Name That Price!

Team members will play 3 rounds, each consisting of two parts. The first part is a ‘Face Off’ challenge: Be the fastest to correctly answer a question about a survey in the Zoom chat! The second part has teams work together in breakout rooms to guess the most popular responses to a series of surveys. The top two teams go head-to-head in the lightning ‘Fast Money’ round. The winner of this round wins the game! Benefits of Virtual Office Feud:

No awkward lags between games or tallying the scores. It was perfect!”
