A team meeting on Teams or Zoom invariably turns into a “Tell session” rather than an oportunity for intermingling. We also know that magic often occurs in those “chance encounters” where people who don’t directly work together meet and new ideas are formed. Futhermore, many new joiners won’t have met their co-workers. Solve this by creating a random “pairing” where every team member is paired up with another every two weeks, for just 15 minutes. This reduces the isolation of working remotely; improves morale, loyalty and productivity, and stimulates creativity of chance encounters.
