We're helping teams build human connections remotely

Remote work is exploding. Before the Covid-19 crisis already more than 12.6 million people worked remotely in technical roles alone. The amount of remote workers has grown 44% in the last 5 years and that trend is accelerating.

The problem

Though remote work has many benefits, like no commute, fewer distractions, and higher productivity, there are also challenges. 47% of the biggest struggles that remote team members face relate to connections: When asked for their biggest struggle, 20% of remote workers respond with communication and collaboration, 20% with loneliness, and another 7% with motivation. Because of this, employees are less engaged, work doesn’t get done effectively, there is unnecessary attrition and onboarding is more painful.


Atium is the platform where teams build and maintain human connections remotely. We design, build and provide activities that build trust, mitigate conflict, enhance communication & improve collaboration. From energizers to engage colleagues in otherwise bland virtual meetings, to coffee activities that take your conversations to a deeper level or team building activities where the whole team can come together and practice collaboration, whilst having fun.
