Why Virtual Coffee Might Be Your Most Important Meeting
When working remotely, it’s easy for employees to feel out-of-sight, out-of-mind.

These short, casual, personal interactions are essential building blocks for workplace trust and engagement. That is why leaders need to be very intentional about creating similar opportunities like virtual coffee to check-in with employees so they feel seen and heard.
