Boost social interactions in a remote setup

Use this template to help your team transition to a remote setup and maintain social interactions across team members. Run a simple workflow to teach managers how to schedule a number of basic ongoing activities, set up 1:1’s and check in on the team to gauge how efficiently the remote set up is working.

How this template will make your work easier

  • By running this manager's training you can significantly help transition your teams to be remote while keeping the "team spirit" high and social interactions active. This fosters a sense of inclusivity and prevents members from feeling lonely or left out.
