The majority of companies exploring a distributed workforce overlook the integral culture + community piece of the puzzle. Terminal’s Chief People Officer Jennifer Farris can outline some of the best practices to fill that gap how to build a unique culture to infuse collaboration, belonging and pride. Jenn firmly believes that remote teams create exponential effects, powering the next big ideas and facilitating the building of world-class products.

Digital transformation of the workforce has made it easier than ever for people to work remote. While there are a number of benefits to building remote teams, like removing borders to unlock access to the best talent which helps companies scale and grow, it also has its drawbacks…

Many companies have tried to build a remote workforce, but in most cases, they focus on working from home, or maybe in a shared office space alongside workers of all types. The former can be isolating and the latter can be distracting – the result of either being a reduction of employee engagement and productivity. In fact, studies show that loneliness is the biggest struggle for remote workers.

Terminal is the leader in building remote development teams and supporting the entire employee experience—from providing premium shared workspaces to fostering community. They create events and community around topics engineers care about and give them the resources to learn and solve problems with in-person connection. Many fast-growing startups like Hims, Bungalow, and Gusto rely on Terminal to help them scale and build world-class remote technical teams.
