Virtual communication refers to the use of digital tools like text messages, email chats, video calls to transfer information between people who do not in a face-to-face relationship. It can be a vital component of collaborative work particularly in the context of fully remote or mixed teams.

Working remotely can mean that it is easy to miss important details. There is also a lack of immediate feedback and responses. This can result in miscommunication and frustration for both team members and managers. In addition, non-verbal cues such as facial expressions or body language can be difficult to interpret. It is important to have clear communication procedures for teams working remotely.

The right communication tools and processes can make the difference between a highly productive and efficient remote team and one that is distracted and overwhelmed by too many notifications or lack of structure. It’s also important to ensure that employees feel safe in communicating with colleagues on the web which will help to reduce the chance of miscommunications and communication obstacles.
