Advanced technologies, online tools, and high internet speed have enabled people to work remotely without any additional effort.

Even though there are many benefits of remote working, there are some demerits too. As everyone is working from their own home, it is somewhere affecting team bonding. It is not possible to meet your team and do several bonding activities together like you used to do in the old times. This is where the concept of virtual team building has come into action. There are many benefits of doing these online activities, like:-
