With remote collaboration, it's so important to maintain strong social connections - and build bonds from scratch with new hires.
For this reason, while we have spaces for client-related tasks, we also have a social space where we manage team-building events. This holds us accountable to regular virtual team-building events, and events are less likely to get stalled due to our busy schedules. We have more clarity into who owns what. From writing trivia questions to arranging virtual escape rooms, each task and subtask has an owner and due date.
Unlike with Slack or other conversation platforms, we can have conversations in the Wrike stream, and it's tied directly to the original task.
Thanks to this new method we are holding more social events, have higher morale (our eNPS score is up 18 points since this time last year), and empowering the members of the social committee.
There's even more we can do (like using the budgeting fields) to get even more value out of this space, but it's been a big win so far.
