Loved just how easy it was to pay for our event and get all of the details
Our point of contact at Outback provided top-notch customer service by reaching out to me immediately after booking, as well as following up with me several days before our event, and after our event. He helped me get up to speed with the app and the event and was super professional. I also loved just how easy it was to pay for our event and get all of the details to print out and to run the event. Whoever decided on a Virtual Clue Murder Mystery is great!
Lyndon, this was so beneficial. We talked about our strengths and weaknesses as an Executive Leadership Team in a way that we had never done before. You pushed us on becoming more professionally vulnerable with each other, thereby strengthening us as a team. Phenomenal impact!

Outback took our virtual events to the next level!
Making virtual team building events comparable to in-person events can be challenging but Outback's Code Break and Game Show Extravaganza offerings took our virtual events to the next level! We were able to engage students in a meaningful way and received feedback that these were some of the most fun recruitment events they'd ever attended! The Outback team took the time before the event to understand our needs, our audience, and walk us through the details so we felt confident hosting these virtual events - thank you!

Brought us together across geographies
It was fun for all of us. It brought us together across geographies - working together as teams and having a lot of fun. We really saw some skills that we didn't know each other had. And, you know what, a little competition and a lot of fun.
We greatly appreciated Innate Leaders' flexibility and responsiveness to our evolving needs
We worked with Innate Leaders to explore the concept of mindset in our leadership team. The conversations we had before the sessions gave the consultants a good understanding of our culture and the issues we were facing and that in turn helped them connect the work to our real world challenges. We greatly appreciated Innate Leaders' flexibility and responsiveness to our evolving needs and willingness to adapt their work both in meetings and during the planning stages. The work produced some of the best dialogue we’ve ever had as a leadership team.
FAQ About Virtual Employee Engagement
What Is Virtual Employee Engagement?
If you haven’t heard the term “virtual employee engagement,” don’t worry. We get this question a lot. The term refers to activities and solutions that help teams connect, learn, and grow together from anywhere in the world.
Virtual employee engagement activities and solutions use digital conferencing platforms to empower stronger, happier, and more effective teams, no matter where your employees are located. With virtual employee engagement for remote teams, your team members can participate simultaneously without needing to be in the same place together.
Whether your goal is to help your team socialize and stay connected, to sharpen their existing professional tools, or to learn new skills, these innovative, outside-the-box, customizable activities are an affordable and effective option.
We offer three types of virtual employee engagement services to support remote teams that can help maintain strong morale and team cohesion during these challenging times.
Why Is Virtual Employee Engagement So Important Right Now?
Since the COVID-19 pandemic started, mandatory quarantine measures have forced employees around the world to work from home indefinitely.
And as organizations and employees adapt to the uncertainty of when and how they’ll return to work, there’s the growing potential for a drastic impact on the wellbeing of individual employees and the cohesiveness of teams.
Without the ability to be together in person, communication, collaboration, and team dynamic can be hindered, resulting in decreased employee morale and an increased risk of burnout.
For teams, this makes it vital to interact and stay connected during these challenging times so that they can adapt and continue delivering their best work.
And for organizations, it’s more important than ever to continue supporting the development and growth of your people as an investment for the future.
