Building better connections through PLAY.

Summer Games: Why Virtual Company Olympics are the PERFECT Team-Building Event

Posted by Natalie Simmons on May 12, 2021 10:30:00 AM

The Olympic Games may have been postponed last year, but that only makes us more excited for this year's Summer Games. And we're not just talking about Tokyo... we're talking about a can't lose virtual summer event that is perfect for any company looking to have fun, stay connected, and play to win!

If you're trying to figure out a fun way to bring your team together for a high-energy, interactive virtual event with high production value, it's a great idea to lean into the incredible Olympic spirit. Here are five good reasons why.

1. Perfect for building camaraderie.

Team-building games are specifically designed to encourage teams to work together, leveraging each other's strengths and creating a positive atmosphere where everyone encourages their teammates, learns from each other, and connects beyond just the day-to-day projects and "work talk." 

2. Team spirit makes everything more fun.

What's more fun than representing your country in some silly, low stakes games? We encourage everyone to get into the spirit, awarding points for creativity and energy, ensuring that everyone has a great time. Because really, isn't having fun with your team the most important thing?

3. We all love a little pomp and circumstance.

We know from experience that participants really respond to the energy and production value of a virtual event. That's why we've gone all-in on our interactive video content and trained our emcees and hosts to really build the excitement. From a coordinated Opening Ceremony to a pride-inducing medal ceremony, your team will love every bit of the games. 

4. Healthy competition brings out the best in people.

There's nothing quite like seeing your employees and coworkers cheer each other on, and REALLY mean it. It's incredible what can happen, and what amazing personal relationships can build from one well-coordinated, purposeful afternoon of fun and games. 

5. Tap into the excitement of this summer's Olympics.

Do you want to look like the absolute smartest event planner in company history? Do you want to make your company's virtual summer events feel timely, relevant, and totally in sync with what's happening globally? Of course you do. That's why—for a genius like you—planning your company Olympics is a no-brainer!
