Here’s What We’ve Learned From Our First Two Weeks Working From Home

How Are You Ensuring Business Continuity?

  • Slack
  • Zoom/GoToMeeting
  • G Suite
  • Trello/Monday/Cloud Coach
  • Aha
  • Confluence

How Are You Keeping Teammates Engaged?

  • Virtual Team Coffee Breaks or Happy Hours — come with a beverage of snack of your choice and chat about your day.
  • Company Cribs — we are all probably seeing more of one another’s living space than is typical, why not expand it to a complete tour! Interested employees can volunteer to give coworkers a fun tour of their spaces.
  • Pet Planet — animal lovers are working alongside our pets and want to see more of our coworkers’ furry (or scaly!) family than just the occasional pup traipsing through a meeting!
  • Virtual Dance Party/Dance Class — we are lucky to have quite a few multi-talented ClearCompany-ers on staff! HR Business Partner Savannah also owns a dance studio and has volunteered to get us all moving one evening next week. Pro tip — this is one place where sharing video is not expected.
  • Kiddo Korner — with schools closing, parents of children of all ages are looking for ways to keep their youngest family members engaged. Opening a video conference line and letting the little ones interact, show off art projects, etc. for a bit can be a nice break for everyone.
