WhatsApp Group

Whilst social media can be a big time waster, creating a team on What'sApp can be useful either for texting or group calls. All WhatsApp messages are  encrypted so it's also a safe place to talk  and you can even get What'sApp on your laptop. If you have a team where there are some people who never connect, then why not connect them? The company, "Trello" do this every week, see how they do it here.

Coffee Time & Tea breaks

Make sure you schedule regular coffee and tea breaks into your calendar so that small groups get to spend time with each other. It doesn't need to be the whole team, but it could be. If some of the team are at home, then make use of Microsoft teams or Zoom to bring them into the office at tea breaks!
