Sidebar online

The remote office is here.
But is your team thriving in it?

Fewer conversations, shrinking networks, less idea-sharing. Remote work can leave us feeling disconnected.

The energy of the office is gone, replaced by the fatigue of endless meetings and back-and-forth texts. You’ve built processes, check-ins, and encouraged team bonding. It’s not nearly enough.

Your team feels scattered and isolated, anxious they’re not connecting with colleagues or learning everything they need to know. Where's the camaraderie, the joy of collaboration, the feeling of being a team?

Spontaneous conversations

Persistent audio and video rooms are where you can meet, debrief, co-work, or just hang out with teammates. See when colleagues are gathering and drop in with a click. Always on and always open, they unlock serendipity.
