Team Building

Everyone is used to in-person team building exercises. Team building is the procedure of turning a group of individual employees into an interconnected team. A team is a group of people organized to work together interdependently and supportively to meet the needs of their customers by accomplishing their purpose or goals. Team building helps bond employees.

Due to coronavirus and everyone having to work from home at this moment, team members are having to connect remotely. Companies are having to get creative with virtual team building activities so their employees can still get close to each other and build a team cohesiveness.

Thankfully there are virtual games and activities that your team may find enjoyable and help them connect and get to know one another. A lot of the video conferencing tools make it easy to connect to the virtual events.

Here are some virtual team building activities:

VIRTUAL CARD GAMES

Because everyone got quarantined a lot of physical card games were transferred to digital card games. You can get your team together and play Cards Against Humanity or Uno.

VIRTUAL LUNCHES

Just because you can’t have lunch together physically doesn’t mean you can’t have lunch with your team. You could set up a virtual lunch with your team and you could also provide lunch for everyone so they could be eating the same thing.

VIRTUAL HAPPY HOUR

A normal way that in-person teams used to bond was by going to happy hour after work. This is something you can do virtually. You can even add virtual backgrounds.

VIRTUAL SCAVENGER HUNT

Because you will not be able to actually hide items for your team to find physically you can create a list of items they have to find in their homes.

Open your Office after COVID-19

There are going to be a lot of new rules that we are going to have to follow in order to open our office doors and try to find a new normal after COVID-19 pandemic. A lot of states and countries are opening up and letting their people go back to work in and a normal life in stages. Some businesses were able to stay open, but have their employees work from home, and now they are trying to transition going back to the office everyday. 

 

We are already use to the new social norms, behaviors and habits that we have had to deal with in grocery stores and everyday life. Thankfully because of the lock down and the concern for the spread of COVID-19 a lot of interactions have become “touchless”. You can buy groceries, order food, buy a car, etc. all from your smart phone.

 

When opening up your business you might have to change the way you conduct your meetings and change some of your technology in your meeting rooms or conference rooms. We don’t want to stop the collaboration of your employees, but it will need to evolve to meet the guidelines for opening your office. With Crestron AirMedia you could be covered as it is a wireless presentation platform, meaning it will enable your employees to bring their own personal devices into the meeting room and share content.

 

Crestron has a great blog post, Getting Back to Work Post COVID19 – Touchless Collaborative Meetings, that tells you all about their AirMedia and how it could be useful to your office. 

 

Let Commercial Audio Video Installation Orange County help you get your conference or meeting room set up for you to get your business back to normal.

Sanitizing Your Crestron Touchscreen

Just like your phone or iPad your Crestron Touchscreen should be sanitized per the CDC recommendations during this difficult time. Here at Commercial Audio Video Installation Orange County we recommend that you sanitize the screen before and after each use and wash your hands as well.

 

Crestron has made a wonderful blog about how to sanitize your touchscreen, which could be useful for your phone or iPad as well. 

 

This is how Crestron says to clean their screens;

To clean a Crestron interface, simply use any commercially available non-ammonia glass or disinfectant cleaner solution with 70% isopropyl alcohol. Do not use anything containing bleach. Apply a small amount of cleaner directly to  a microfiber or a similar disposable towel or cloth-be sure the cloth is damp and not wet. Then wipe the glass display clean. Most of our systems are not waterproof so do not  apply cleaner directly to any interface. And do not wipe the plastic surrounding the display.”
