在远程工作中,和同事建立联系变得分外困难。面对面的工作中,大家可以一起在茶水间闲聊,或者一起午饭;远程工作中很少有这样的机会。Doist 天生就是一家远程公司,作者总结了在日常工作中,通过以下方式和同事加强联系:

  1. 变得主动并不会错,也许其他同事也有同样的顾虑;

  2. 看到其他同事有所成绩,可以私下里鼓励,开启对话;

  3. 看到其他同事和你有类似的兴趣,可以以此展开话题;

  4. 也许其他同事和你有相似背景,所以这也是一个对话契机;

  5. 可以定期地组织线上聚会,一起玩一些小游戏;

  6. 可以约同事线上聊天;

Needless to say, you’re not alone in finding it challenging to connect with your remote colleagues, and I’m glad you’re being so proactive at the start of your new role.

Organic connections often don’t arise on remote teams, so don’t be afraid to be bold and pro-active.

One of the simplest and most natural ways to connect with a colleague is to go out of your way to compliment their work and give them some extra kudos.

I often privately reach out to colleagues when I love something they’ve done.

While most conversations at work are naturally about work, people tend to drop small hints about their life and passions.

with everything happening in the world, I’ve found global events are a good conversation starter.

If I’ve connected with someone asynchronously, I’ll often ask casually if they would be interested in chatting on a call.

Suggest a few times in their time zone, and send over the calendar invite.

Making connections with colleagues becomes more difficult when working remotely. Doist is a remote company by nature, and the author summarized the ways in which we can strengthen the bonds with our colleagues.

  1. It is not wrong to become proactive; perhaps other colleagues have the same concerns.

  2. Congratulating when other colleagues have achieved something can open up a dialogue.

  3. Discovering that other colleagues and we have similar interests can start a conversation.

  4. If other colleagues have similar backgrounds to you, so this is also an opportunity for dialogue.

  5. We can organize regular online gatherings to play small games together.

  6. We can ask colleagues to coffee chat online.
