As COVID-19 continues to keep people working remotely, it’s becoming increasingly important to help your team feel connected. With isolation, social distancing, and stay at home mandates, it’s easy for individuals to start to feel disconnected and discouraged.

Giving your team the resources to stay connected can help. Microsoft Teams can be one of those resources. Not only can Teams help you continue to run your business as smoothly as possible during this challenging and uncertain time, it can also bring your team together.

With features like one-on-one chats or instant group messages, colleagues can easily keep in touch—making up for the missed watercooler conversations. Meetings can also run smoothly with sharing features and chat windows so everyone can be included. Collaboration is also made easy on Teams where multiple people can work together on a single project.

Embrace Online

Include an online link

Include an online link to your meeting so everyone can be included, no matter where they are working.

Be mindful and inclusive

Be mindful and inclusive by frequently pausing to allow time for questions and reminding attendees they can use the chat window to share their thoughts. 

Stay Focused

Turn on video

Turn on video so your team can feel more connected. Video helps keep everyone engaged and cuts down on multitasking, making the meeting more productive.

Blur your background

Blur your background while presenting, especially if you have a busy background. Note: Background blurring might not prevent sensitive information behind you from being visible to other meeting participants.

Record the meeting

Record the meeting to capture video, audio, and screen-sharing so you can refer to the meeting or share it with people who couldn’t attend. Note: Be sure to inform meeting participants that you are recording.

Share Content

Share your screen

Share your screen to show your desktop, a specific window, or a specific app so your team can follow along with your presentation. Use the Teams desktop app for the best sharing experience.

Collaborate on ideas

Collaborate on ideas using Whiteboard. Draw, sketch, and write on a shared digital canvas.

Stay Connected

Make up for missed hallway talk

Make up for missed hallway talk and be deliberate about connecting with coworkers. Set yourself reminders to check in with people regularly.

Bring the team together

Bring the team together through opportunities where the whole team can get connected. Maybe it’s a brainstorm, a daily check-in, or even a virtual coffee. Help ensure that your team doesn’t feel isolated.

Have fun!

Have fun! Encourage fun activities and challenges to maintain morale. You can hold a photo contest or praise team members for creative ideas. Help your team stay positive, engaged, and energised.
