Virtual Team Building Events - The Chef Upstairs

Virtual Team Building Events

Our virtual cooking classes are a great way to connect in the heart of everyone’s home.

Classes are interactive, where your team will prepare their meal under the guidance of our chef. Once a menu is chosen, we would provide a “set up” sheet that would include the menu, ingredient list, kitchen tools, what to prepare in advance, etc. All employees/guests would have an opportunity to mingle before, during and after the cooking portion.

For a full meal, we recommend 2.5-3 hours and are also offering 1-hour/75 minute “appy hour” menu ideas.

We have had wonderful feedback about our virtual events. You can see our virtual photo album here and watch a video of one guest’s experience below.

The Importance of Virtual Team-Building Events

These days, bonds between colleagues and the company are becoming strained. Therefore, organizations need to keep their teams aligned with company culture while ensuring their productivity.

Gallup research found “Virtual team-building exercise leads to an increase in employee performance rate, claims 41% lower absenteeism and 21% higher profitability.” Is Working Remotely Effective? Gallup Research Says Yes

When remote workers feel lonely, isolated, or unsupported, a virtual team-building activity can remind them of all the amazing people they have behind them.

When remote workers feel their excitement slipping, a virtual team-building activity can help them rekindle their passion by exposing them to excited co-workers.

When remote workers are craving more autonomy, a virtual team-building activity can help them gain trust from their managers and peers.

Experts found that “transformational and visionary leadership” can get remote engagement levels up to on-site engagement levels.  Virtual Teams: Work/Life Challenges - Keeping Remote Employees Engaged | Semantic Scholar
