Since we don’t have the same opportunity for serendipitous encounters with co-workers, our interactions must be more intentional. We should all make an effort to get to know each other on a personal level, and we have taken certain intiatives to help accomplish that goal.
Once a year, we gather for our annual meatspace meeting. Everyone will be flown to a single destination, where we get the chance to spend time together in meat space.
There are a number of ways folks can connect outside of work contexts. For instance, non-work topic Slack channels, ad hoc video calls to discuss hobbies, etc., are all encouraged. We also prioritize work events where travel and physical interaction is involved (like meetups, events, conferences, etc.).
The Weekly All-hands meeting is partially a time for us to get to know each other a little better.
