With the remote office, the remote team loss the opportunity to casually bumped to each other at the pantry and make some small talk. The lack of connection and socialization may cause team conflict and misunderstanding. It may even reduce work productivity.

As a business owner, it is time for you to take an approach to spice the team spirit up.
