In todays digital age, remote work has become increasingly common and many teams operate virtually. While technology allows us to communicate and collaborate with others from anywhere in the world, there’s something to be said about meeting face-to-face.
Recently, our remote team had the opportunity to do just that by attending a David Hockney immersive experience at Lightroom, in Kings Cross, London. Not only was it a fun outing, combined afterwards with dinner and drinks, but it also had unexpected benefits for our creative process.
As we walked and watched the exhibition, surrounded by Hockney’s vibrant colours and intriguing images, we found ourselves inspired and energised. Seeing the artwork and discussing our thoughts and interpretations sparked new ideas and perspectives that we may not have thought of prior to immersing ourselves in Hockney’s world.
This experience highlighted the importance of taking breaks and engaging in activities outside of the working environment. It’s easy to get caught up in the daily routines of emails and deadlines but making time for creativity and stimulating the imagination is refreshing, leading to improved productivity and being culturally enriched.
Let’s delve deeper into the benefits of remote teams meeting up for creative outings and how it can positively impact both personal and professional growth.
Experiencing the Hockney exhibition has provided numerous benefits for our remote team. From boosting morale to sparking creative ideas it allows us to build stronger connections and foster a sense of community which can lead to improved teamwork and productivity.
Let’s encourage teams to get out of their usual working environment and engage in creative experiences that can generate fresh ideas and strengthen team collaboration. With this in mind, where would you recommend your team to go on their next work day/night out?
