We’re sharing the recordings & slide decks for past “office” hours & webinar programs; please reach out if you have any questions, or ideas for content! (And if you’re not already using Donut, you can add it to Slack with one click.)
Do you miss laughing over silly, random things with your coworkers? Us, too. Moments of silliness and vulnerability strengthen bonds, which can be trickier when you’re working from different places. For our next “office” hours, we’ll be joined by special guest Gary Ware, the Chief Play Officer at Breakthrough Play. Gary’s an expert on fostering creativity and connection through humor and — you guessed it — play. He’ll share a bit more about our newest Connection Program, the “Un-Talent” show, and will be here for all your burning questions. This 1hr session is for you if:
– You’re looking to bring more lighthearted fun into how your team connects
– You’re hoping to spark creativity and collaborative problem solving across teams
– You’ve onboarded new employees during the pandemic, and you want to give them an authentic way to build deeper relationships.
Time: Weds. April 28 at 1pm ET / 10am PT. REGISTER NOW

Connection Program Ideas
We’ve heard from our community that working remotely has led to leaders missing out on opportunities to connect across levels, now that we’re missing “in-between” moments like hallway run-ins after meetings. The skip-level meeting can help with that! In this “Office” Hours session, we walk you through Donut’s new skip-level connection program, open-sourcing how our leadership uses Donut to more regularly and reliably hold 1:1s with direct-reports’ direct reports. This 45-min virtual session is for you if you’re:
– Looking for strategies to connect your leadership and remote or hybrid team
– Planning for a new People program, and looking for ways to extend its reach
– Missing casual banter and want to find ways to build it into your work-from-home setup

Remote and Hybrid Work Culture
They used to happen at the water cooler or snack bar: informal encounters where team members trade small talk and big ideas. Yet in an increasingly remote and hybrid workforce, those chance meetings have been disrupted. How can employers put in place programs, incentives, and other tools to bring their people together virtually? And what sustainable practices can be put into place as some employees transition back to the office? The potential benefits are many: a richer corporate culture, more innovation, and stronger bonds of inclusion. Watch Donut’s CEO Dan Manian in conversation with Fast Company reporter Lydia Dishman. Brought to you by From Day One.
Learn how to map and build a sustainable, intentional culture from the experts! We talked with Josh Levine, author of Great Mondays and Bobby Melloy, Sr. People Scientist at Culture Amp, to learn about the six building blocks of culture — and some easy best practices to make your culture more authentic, intentional, and inclusive by design.
