How we work
Periodically during the week, Donut will pair people in the #coffee channel. It will kick off the conversation with a fun icebreaker and then encourage you to take a remote coffee or donut together.
This can take any form you want, but usually it's a 10-20 minutes video call where you can talk about whatever's on your mind — it doesn't have to be work, and in fact most people use it to catch up about their hobbies, families and personal lives, and get to know colleagues with whom they usually don't have a lot of interaction. Donut is just like any break, and should not be tracked.
If you're a remote worker, Donut is a nice way to socialize with the rest of the team. If you work from an office, it's still great to get to know the rest of the team — in this case you can "ban" your co-located colleagues so that Donut only pairs you with people you don't know as well.
If you haven't tried Donut yet and would like to participate in the next round of pairings, feel free to join the #coffee channel on Slack!
