In the current climate, more and more businesses are looking for ways to build and maintain relationships within teams. Remote employees are often focused on their own tasks, forgetting the importance of interacting with co-workers like you would in an office environment.
Keeping morale in any organisation is crucial but can be challenging when you cannot physically be together, with the day to day in every organisation being disrupted by COVID-19.
