Building Workplace Culture for Remote Teams

" When there's belonging, there's engagement, and when there's engagement there's productivity"

-Jeff Boss, Forbes

The Problem

Building company culture is challenging enough in a non-pandemic work environment. Being forced to move your team to fully remote only exacerbates that challenge.

Gallup estimates that actively disengaged employees cost the US $450-$550 Billion in lost productivity each year.

According to Snack Nation, virtual employees feel isolated because they no longer have the same cues that make them feel seen and heard.

The absence of even small things—such as smiles, high-fives, and the buzz of office chatter—can leave some workers feeling disconnected. -Snack Nation

An alarming 70% of American employees aren't working to their full potential, and they're slowing economic growth. -Gallup

A feeling of belonging at a company has the strongest relationship to engagement. This means that belonging has a high correlation to business outcomes like productivity and retention.

The Solution

Kooler takes the same social interactions that used to happen in the office and facilitates them organically right in Slack.

Connections made. Humanity experienced.

Work culture made kooler.

Working remotely allows for productivity and flexibility like never seen before.  Unfortunately, the social connections and water cooler conversations over shared interests have been lost.  We know these interactions are critical for engendering workplace trust, building company culture, and establishing community.  What will the future of the business world look like without this key ingredient?

Kooler has solved this problem by creating a way to facilitate spontaneous interactions, social collisions, if you will, throughout the workday, between employees.
