As teams continue to stay in a full or part-time remote/hybrid work model, there’s a pressing need to nurture connections and facilitate camaraderie on an ongoing basis. Working from home may have saved some from hellish commutes but it has also led to feelings of isolation, loneliness, and feeling disengaged from their peers and managers. Virtual team-building activities help to foster a more connected group culture and a non-work-related setting to show off one’s personality and sometimes hidden problem-solving talents. Check out some live virtual experiences offered by Beeyonder that’ll ensure your next remote team-building event is a memorable one for all!
Take Part in a Private Wine Tasting
You may not be able to gather at the local pub for year-end drinks in person but you can still do group cheers over Zoom, and receive expert instruction on Tuscan wines from an Italian sommelier. This virtual experience includes three full-size bottles of wine (Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG, Chianti DOCG, and Baldassare Super Tuscan Red) shipped to each person in the US or EU, and can accommodate up to 100 participants per session.

Enjoy a Tuscan Olive Oil Tasting
Fruity, bitter, pungent, olive oils can taste very different depending on the olive varietal, the soil, and weather affecting the harvest. Join this hosted virtual experience that will explain more on how olive oil is made and how to taste it like an expert, the different oil tasting techniques, and the sensorial vocabulary used. The experience includes four bottles of olive oil shipped per person to the US or EU. Find out more about the experience here.
