Maintaining trust, connection, and conversation without the watercooler with Rajiv Ayyangar
From informal chats around the watercooler to team lunches, there’s always been room for social connection in the workplace. However, for PeopleOps leaders, the task of maintaining morale and fostering workplace connections has become more of a challenge as teams continue to shift to remote, hybrid or distributed working models. In this episode, Rhys sits down with Rajiv Ayyangar, the CEO and Co-Founder of Tandem, to discuss smart strategies for PeopleOps leaders who are hoping to rise to the challenge of keeping a strong sense of community alive in this new world of work. As a tool that allows teams to connect, hang out and collaborate remotely, Tandem is aiming to help companies bring back a positive office vibe—without the office. Rajiv shares his perspective on the value of creating a tight-knit company culture despite being spread across cities, countries and continents, and how emerging technologies can help PeopleOps leaders accomplish this.
