Tie Tuesday at CopelandBEC

Our team was born during COVID so we’ve never known what it’s like to work all together in an office. Being remote from the start has become a strength for us in many ways, but not without its challenges in terms of developing culture and maintaining connection.

We’ve done a few things to address these challenges, but one that has been particularly fun has been honoring Tie Tuesdays with a weekly web meeting. H/t to Ed Farrington for the idea.

Staying connected on Tie Tuesday
