Are the Days of Grabbing a Coffee with Your Best Work Friend Gone?

With the rise of working remotely, some are grieving the loss of their work bestie. According to a Gallup Study, having a “best work friend” leads to more engagement, higher-quality work, and an increase in overall well-being. Here are some tips for cultivating better relationships with your co-workers in a remote world.

Schedule a 15 Minute Catch Up

After the weekly team meeting, it gives you a natural jumping-off point to connect one-on-one, or if you identified a genuine connection (like you both love Bravo!), schedule a recap sesh post a particularly good episode of Real Housewives.

Grab a Virtual Coffee

At the top of the day, have your coffee with a co-worker. Scheduling something first thing helps ensure you keep your commitment and have fewer distractions.

Small Talk Can Lead to Better Bonds

At each team meeting, allow for small talk; it provides some organic bonding and personal insights that can lead to natural connections.

Celebrate Milestones

Birthdays, engagements, wins, and promotions should all be recognized and celebrated. So start with a friendly email, a shout-out at the team meeting, and a quick emoji storm on slack.

Share Shortcuts and Tips

Nothing says "I Care" more than sharing a good tip or hack.

Simply Ask: "How Are You?"

This is a great way to show you care about their well-being and want to support.

Follow these tips and you might find yourself like OOO one day, creating a company with friends from work, so that you will never be without a work bestie.
