5 creative ideas for digital team events

Ideen für digitale Teamevents zum Beispiel ein Schokoladentasting

"Hello…? Can you hear me?" is probably the most heard sentence by teams that work from home and regularly exchange ideas in online meetings. It's not surprising if some people sometimes lose interest in digital teamwork. Added to this is the additional stress caused by the many Slack calls and hangouts. In order to maintain group dynamics, digital team events are essential, especially in teams that work remotely.

Of course, the idea of ​​holding team events virtually seems a bit strenuous at first. You're online all day anyway. But one thing is also certain: due to digital collaboration, the friendly small talk in the hallway is lost. And of course this cannot simply be replaced by a digital team event. Nevertheless, lively conversations also have a positive effect on collaboration online. We at Theyo have also tried out various online team events online. In this article we share our favorites and ideas for digital team events. Here we go:

Digital team event? Virtual chocolate tasting!

At Theyo we really have a tough job: We regularly have to test ourselves through the latest products on the market for fine, fair and sustainable chocolate ;) Because we love chocolate and because we wanted to share the fun of trying out different chocolates with others, we offer virtualchocolate tastings . We simply send you a package full of delicious chocolates to your home and then connect in a digital room on the date of the tasting. In such chocolatey events you will certainly learn a lot of new things: where fine cocoa comes from, how chocolate is made and what the aroma spectrum of chocolate is all about. We offer this format for both private groups and as a B2B digital team event . So you are connected not only through work, but also through pleasure. Spoiler: it will be a very tasty trip around the world!

A virtual pub quiz

At Theyo, we not only love chocolate, we also love quizzing together. And we don’t want to miss out on that even when working from home. Since quizzes are only fun with several people anyway, they are the ideal digital team event. What do you need? A quiz master who takes care of the organization and technical implementation, good quiz questions - for a small donation you can download them from the Berlin pub DanTra's, for example - and of course a good digital tool. We have already tested Zoom and the slightly prettier version Whereby. In both cases you have the opportunity to create “digital rooms” in which the teams can consult with each other and discuss questions. Then everyone meets again in the “main room”, where the quiz master breaks down the answers.

Virtual Beer'o'clock or Cocktail Mixing Class

One of our top ideas for digital team events is to drink an after-work beer or cocktail together as a team, but online. For regular events, for example, a weekly "Beer'o'clock" is ideal. To get a little more of a team event atmosphere, you can also book a virtual cocktail mixing course. At Woods on you can either order the cocktail boxes in advance or simply go and buy the ingredients yourself. The shopping list is updated weekly to match the respective cocktail.

Cooking evening together with a cooking box

Cooking courses are always very popular as a team event. This is certainly also because certain principles from the kitchen can be easily transferred to teamwork. The great thing is that there are now numerous providers who offer cooking courses as digital team events. For us, a shared cooking evening with colleagues from our own kitchen sounds like a wonderful opportunity to get to know the other team members better outside of the work context. In order to prevent major bankruptcies and breakdowns, it is a good idea to order a cooking box for everyone. Of course, it is particularly nice to rely on smaller, local providers. The Google search “cooking box + [your city]” usually provides good options!

A virtual painting game

Maybe you already know it from the Wii? A round of scribbling can also be a nice change in the home office. Admittedly, this may not be a complete team event, but in combination with the aforementioned Beer'o'clock (or Limo'o'clock - whatever you like) it is definitely a nice digital after-work activity and counts in our opinion to the “digital team events” category.

No matter what you decide: have fun!

FAQ Digital team events ideas

How much does a digital team event cost on average?

This depends entirely on what activity you want to carry out at your online event. If you organize the whole thing yourself and don't book any external organizers, a digital team event can actually be quite affordable for you. If you book an external organizer, such as us, to hold achocolate tasting , the costs depend on various factors, such as the number of people and the specific package you choose. So create a cost estimate for the team event as soon as possible and ask external organizers if necessary so that you don't exceed your budget.
