  2. Start to Huddle

    Look to install new team habits to help fuel better communication and collaboration, especially from a distance. A frequent huddle helps you align with your team members. Did you know that 15 minutes of daily huddling saves up to 1 hour a day? It fuels commitment by encouraging people to focus on their tasks of the day, stimulating collaboration and providing a daily check-in.

    Add a huddle
    via the Calender icon on the left-side panel. You can give your huddle a specific name, add a description and set the date and duration. After your team members have finished their registration, you can add them to your huddle.

    Last but not least: you can add recurring topics via the template. These recurring topics can serve as a friendly reminder to know what kind of topics to contribute to the huddle

    You can add personal agenda topics any time of the day. Both before the huddle starts and during the live huddle.

    So stay tuned...

  4. Daily Checkout

    Each team member can fill in the check-out at the end of the day. Pulse surveys help team members to reflect on the workload, the quality of work and the team mood. Did you know that filling in these 3-4 questions every day can also help you to disconnect from work?
    Before the start of the next huddle, the aggregated team result of the previous working day is visible for every team member.
    If you can trigger the behavior in a team to reach out to each other for both tasks and wellbeing, and turn it into a habit, then you will eventually create a positive remote work culture. The culture often grows on top of some game rules that might look trivial at first.


  5. Install the "Huddle buddy"
