We have fun channels within slack, not just work oriented one. One that’s quite popular for us is a channel for travel photos since a lot of us take advantage of working remotely with travel photos. We also have a channel for music, movies/tv and random fun things. It has to be a fit for your team and what they want to discuss. I would decide these…
Totally agree, I work for an all remote company (Octane AI) and it’s been an incredibly asset for us. All the tools to succeed and be even more productive than in-person teams are there. I actually wrote a guide to being remote from what we have learned https://medium.com/@meganberry/the-complete-guide-to-working-on-a-remote-team-6bb11213e37c
Thank you for saying this Helen.
If someone has been accused of mistreating women, there is no reason for a guy to weigh in and say “But that bro was so nice to me, I don’t think he’s like that.”
Just like if someone was said to be racist, you wouldn’t decide whether that could be true based on how they treat white people. It’s sort-of missing the point.
Cindy, I’m so sorry you’ve gone through some rough times. So happy you’re getting help to get to a better place. Amazed at your bravery in what you have shared. I too need breaks to avoid total meltdown and I think it’s easy for people to forget that it’s a universal thing :)
I feel lucky to know you ❤
