Guide To Remote Employee Feedback

Our customers have shared countless stories about how our icebreakers have sparked meaningful conversations that would have never even gotten started without the right questions at the right time in the right context. Even though Icebreakers are a great way to engage your remote team they are only the tip of the iceberg. Most of our customers come for the icebreakers but stay for the Coffee Chats and Shout Outs.

When working from home there is a balance between work and other responsibilities. Workdays are not necessarily set up in 8-hour blocks.
