Technology has allowed the workforce to contribute from virtually anywhere on the planet.  This has transformed both workforce flexibility and  productivity.  Some of the pitfalls of not being co-located are slowly being removed with various tools.  Virtual Ice Breakers has been developed to help address some of the isolation challenges and the reduced ability to have “water cooler” with the geographically distributed workforce.  As the ability for humans to physically connect in different ways evolves,  the psychological connection must also evolve.

The staff at Virtual Ice Breakers have researched the remote working culture from both empirical and practical perspectives.  It is well known that, with in-person communications, non-verbal cues account for a very high percentage of a message.  In a world where audio is now the primary medium, any method to improve communications is vital.

Good relationships with co-workers become vital for great teamwork.  We, as humans, are wired to connect.  When an individual has an insight on fellow team members passions and drivers, common interests can be very beneficial.  A recent study that took place within a branch of the Swedish Postal Service concluded that, “social relations between colleagues are at the root of employee willingness to take on responsibilities beyond their formal job description.”
