Coffee chats are informal meetings where you can catch up with friends/colleagues – both within your team and from other departments. The best part? It can all be done remotely.
Traditional VC software limits your options for organizing a coffee chat meeting with team members – especially if you want to make them organic.
The boring virtual calls and the fact that other people can drop in at any time tend to ruin the mood and make your colleagues less likely to relax and open up.
Wurkr, being a next-level virtual office platform, offers some great perks for all your coffee chats!
Ever had a few laughs with another team member during an unplanned common coffee break time during the day in front of the coffee machine? Of course, you have! Well, this type of quick organic meet-up is called a “coffee chat”.
As the name implies, it should be an informal conversation where everyone gets to let off some steam and enjoy a few laughs. Also, these meetings are not restricted to just a few team members or people from the same department.
In fact, executives and managers can have regular coffee chats with their teams and encourage these types of meetings between co-workers.
Here’s why that’s a good idea – particularly in a remote work situation.
A coffee chat has been shown to increase job satisfaction by 46% for everyone involved in these team meetings. They’re versatile and can have several purposes.
They can, for example, be a simple get-together where two teammates have an informal conversation and get to learn more about each other. That too without pressurising themselves about questions to ask during coffee chats.
Second, they can help you communicate what type of company culture you want to build, and you can do so informally and more pragmatically.
Coffee conversations enable you to build long-lasting and meaningful connections with your teammates and connect on a whole other level.
A chat like that can increase happiness, prevent burnout, and increase motivation – which is all something we’d love!
