4 tips to motivate remote teams 

Over the last few months, most companies have moved to some form of remote work setup. For many, this has been a completely new experience and we know that at times, it may still feel like a struggle to keep teams engaged and empowered.

At JUGS, we’ve both experienced it ourselves, and we’ve also spoken to a number of our clients who have shared their struggles, their tips, and even their day-to-day wins. Here’s what we learnt:


Communication is Key
It can be very easy to work in silos when the only person in the room is, well, yourself.  We’ve noticed that keeping in touch with the people in your team not only helps you focus, but also keeps morale high. We’ve come up with virtual activities that will make your daily team meetings more fun. Our motivational daily booster will automatically connect all the team on a virtual platform, where they need to complete fun tasks, which are then shared with the rest of the team.

Think Outside the Box

A new form of work requires a new way of thinking. If your team is struggling to get their creative juices flowing, why not let everyone wind down with our beer fridays quiz? Or maybe kick off the day with a virtual ice breaker? By adding some fun to your week, you’ll not only be reconnecting with everyone in a more relaxed environment, but also helping everyone to exercise their brain muscles and think more clearly.

Company culture does not require a building
Most companies have worked tirelessly to build a culture that reflects the organisation and the people that form part of it and we cannot stress the importance of using that culture to guide you on your remote working journey. Whether it’s a virtual escape room or some good old after-work virtual drinks, we can help you organise everything remotely.

Team building does not have to stop
At JUGS, we’ve always advocated for the importance of team building, and the reason we take it so seriously is because we’ve seen its benefits. Just because teams aren’t meeting face-to-face, it doesn’t mean that team building activities have to stop. On the contrary, it’s never been more important to invest in and reward your team.
