How to Create and Maintain a Relaxed, Water Cooler Culture for Remote Teams

Posted by Christin on February 27, 2017

Hiring remote teams has many advantages. Some of these awesome benefits include the savings on cost of overhead, a larger pool of applicants to choose from, and great flexibility. It allows you to build a virtual team that you could not put together in-person. There are, however, negatives that may arise with leading distributed teams. Since you are not interacting face-to-face with the team on a daily basis, it can be easy to just do your work, and not focus on team-building. Creating a relaxed, water cooler culture with your remote employees is essential to your success. In one of our previous posts, we gave you “10 Quick Tips on Leading A Remote Team”. Now let’s look at what you can do to create that water cooler culture among all of your remote team members. On-Boarding New Employees In order to ensure every employee is on the same page, you must provide everyone with a similar starting point. When a new employee is brought on board in an office, HR leads her around, introducing her to her coworkers. She is often taken to lunch by her boss, where they chat, and get to know one another. Her boss is then able to take her personality, and assist her in forging relationships that suit all parties well. Since remote teams do not have the aforementioned in-person luxuries, it is imperative to have all current employees reach out personally, to introduce themselves to new hires. This not only provides a more welcome…

What You Need To Know About Starting A Business In Bali

Posted by Andrea Loubier on January 27, 2017

Starting a business in Bali combines two of every entrepreneur’s greatest desires: living in paradise while making a steady profit. The number of international startups springing up in Bali over the last few years has turned this island paradise into something more lucrative than just another Southeast Asian holiday destination. It has become a business opportunity with over 5 million consumers; that caters to a thriving startup ecosystem and is a place where startups can reduce their costs, maximize their profits and live in a breathtaking part of the world. If you are thinking about packing your bags and setting up shop here like I did, there are some things you need to know about what it takes to start and build a technology business in Bali. Bali Is All About Collaborative Co-Working Spaces Due to the shift in millennials choosing to work remotely over a location based job, Bali has developed an abundance of co-working spaces. This trend has created a creative and collaborative environment where individual entrepreneurs and startups can be mega productive, share their story, network and be a part of a supportive community. I’ve discovered my hub and favorite co-working space in Bali, going from a fixed office to being location independent, then back full circle to a more fixed location again, simply because it’s a wonderful place. I have met some of the greatest people at Dojo Bali which I find to be excellent for a number of reasons like location, an engaged community, social events…
