The nature of work is progressively shifting from office to remote working and often happening in temporary teams. If only work related topics are discussed, then team members don’t feel friendly and comfortable with each other. This leads to a decrease in trust and synergy that suffers. We believe that quick trust building over the internet is possible. It takes an informal situation to break the ice. By experiencing downfalls and accomplishments together, you can assess your team members. The fun platform GAMICO helps to enhance social relations and define roles in the early stages of collaboration.
