A Special Trip for a Special Team
Happy July! We are already halfway through the year, and I hope that you’ve been able to begin planning (or begin enjoying) your summer holidays.
This newsletter is a bit different and a bit more special than previous ones, as I want to tell you about Tokeny’s recent team building event that happened earlier this month in Barcelona.
As you know, the Tokeny team hails from around the world working in various countries remotely. We have colleagues from 16 nationalities and counting, with different experiences, cultures, and personalities that help make Tokeny the unique company that it is. Although we function very well remotely, it is important that we take the time to meet up in person to share, learn, and enjoy our time as a collective unit.
Why teambuilding is so important
Team building is crucial in any company, as it creates a moment where colleagues can shift their focus from their daily work objectives to a collective focus on the team itself. These activities bolster our motivation and provide opportunities that allow us to reconfirm our objectives and professional goals as members of Tokeny. And, of course, it gives us time to take part in fun activities both during and after the workday.
These activities are even more important for remote companies, as it is rare to have interpersonal interactions in this setup. Team building for remote teams, especially in a beautiful city like Barcelona, creates excitement and a more relaxed environment where we can express ourselves and communicate in a more enjoyable way. I strongly believe that remote work has boosted our productivity, but let’s face it: Brainstorms and chit-chats are extremely hard and boring via video calls.
