Building Virtual teams

Remote work is not the wave of the future…

it’s here and now!

 

Virtual teams are made up of people based in various locations. The biggest benefits are that companies are able to access talent across the world, open doors to their desired market and save costs.

However, managing and building virtual teams has it challenges. Building a thriving team culture and fostering good working relationships is limited by the lack of face-to-face interactions. A 24/7 access does not reduce potential cultural conflicts. What’s worse, it might amplify them.
