Modern communication strategies for distributed workplaces with Joe Thomas
With remote work becoming the status quo and teams distributed across continents, the state of workplace communication has changed dramatically in just a few short years. In this episode, Rhys sits down with Joe Thomas, CEO and co-founder of Loom, a video messaging tool that allows users to record quick video messages in place of meetings or written communications. During their discussion, they explore effective strategies for team members hoping to build trust and get to know one another, even if their working hours don’t overlap or they’re in different time zones. Joe explains how video messaging can foster culture and connection in remote, distributed or asynchronous workplaces, and why it could possibly help to build team culture and reduce unnecessary meetings. He also shares his key predictions for workplace communication over the next few years, including why he believes more companies will shift to a hybrid working model in the future.
