How to: Improve team connection
In-person time is important for teams. But because most teams don’t sit shoulder-to-shoulder, leaders can no longer rely on office attendance to impact connection.
At Atlassian, we intentionally bring entire teams together in-person 3-4 times per year. We ensure that each gathering has a clear purpose, group, and structure.
Our research shows that these intentional team gatherings have a far greater impact on teamwork than regular office attendance, and that the boost lasts for 4-5 months.
