So Far, Yet So Close: Best Tools and Practices for Building Culture in Remote Teams

Let’s face it: companies are defined by the culture they create.

For some, culture building is making a cool office with bean bags, ping pong tables, slides and beer on a Friday afternoon. But that isn’t it.

Culture goes to the very heart of a company. Putting in place the right structures and support for employees is crucial if you want them and your company to succeed.

When you build a positive, healthy, transparent and supportive culture, you are creating an environment where highly-skilled, motivated employees thrive.

When your team is happy, so are your clients; your company grows and thrives as a result of the culture you’ve created.
