Coffee with Donut: Pulling Back the Curtain on Connections Programs

Our use case-focused webinar series will focus on specific, meaningful, and measurable ways to foster greater employee connection using Donut.

At Donut, we’re all about the power of connection: connecting people across teams, geographies, stages of their careers, and so on. The more opportunities for connection, the better! With so many kinds of connections programs and permutations of how to run them, it’s hard to know what to choose and how to set it up. So, we decided to pull back the curtain and share the ins-and-outs of our four most common Donut use cases, along with a how-to-guide for each.

We’re hosting a webinar series over the next four weeks, with four short installments, each focused on a particular use case where Donut can help. In just 30 minutes while you eat your lunch, you’ll have a chance to learn more about why these programs are important and how current customers are deploying them successfully; see how to implement the program in your own organization and Slack workspace or Donut dashboard, including a live demo; and get answers to your burning questions from a Donut expert, live. This post will be updated on an ongoing basis to include links to recordings and slides.

Details and links to register, or followup materials (recordings + slides), for each of the webinars, below!
