Here’s how Remo can help you create the best possible experience:
Remo makes it simple to create a delightful, immersive virtual space that empowers people to communicate, connect, and collaborate with anyone just like you would in real life.
Your virtual team needs more than the typical Zoom video calls or slack chat, they need a tool that's really going to help them feel like they are in an in-person company retreat. A complete virtual meeting platform like Remo.
Walk around, create real face to face interactions, meet up in breakout rooms or by the water cooler, host fun and engaging happy hours, parties, webinars, or any virtual event. Remo's the perfect digital space for you to host a successful remote company-wide team bonding event.
Here are some of the functionalities you need to look for in an online meeting tool to have a successful virtual retreat for your remote company.
The very first and most important feature of any video conferencing tool is to be able to have video meetings. It enables your remote workers to replicated the in-person feel.
Another very important functionality is screen sharing in real time. You can also live stream a video or bring your team members on stage for different fun activities or teamwork.
Replicate the sense of community and face to face interactions with breakout rooms (known as tables on Remo) where you can come and go as you please and have natural conversations with your colleagues, discuss new initiatives or do icebreakers in smaller groups.
You can use Remo as a collaboration tool, and all work together on the same miro whiteboard, that you can then keep, much like the whiteboard in your real-life conference room.
With Remo's Q&A feature, everyone can write questions in real-time and you can have a Q&A session at the end of the presentation where you answer all employee questions.
The best part of a virtual retreat is teamwork and virtual games, and to do that, you need some networking capabilities. Get rid of the zoom fatigue, enable your remote team to walk around and discuss as they please, just like they would before and after an in-person event to really enhance their virtual experience.
You can start with a pre-made template, but to engage your virtual team, make sure the environment where they meet is fun and custom your very own company culture. You work with a bunch of Star Wars fans? Why not meet on the death star for the virtual town hall meeting? Possibilities are endless with Remo.
Use our chat to talk in private to a colleague, send meeting invitations by simply clicking on your colleague's profile, or recap the most important points of the meeting or FAQs in the general chat!
Whether you've switched to remote work because of the pandemic or not, here are some virtual team building activities to keep in mind to have a fun virtual team retreat:
- Trivia game
- Award ceremony
- Cooking class or mixology class
- Escape game
- Mental Wellness day
- Murder Mystery
- Scavenger hunt

Make sure to take into account your remote team's time zones before planning your virtual retreat activities. And give them the opportunity to give you some takeaways or feedback to improve it along the way.
