Happy weekend, Remote Work Tribe, and welcome back to another Weekly Roundup! If you’re new here, our Weekly Roundup is a collection of anything and everything remote work, including the highlight of today: community building.
In the remote landscape, a community means much more than simply being geographically close to someone or sharing a social network. Rather, a community is a connection—between employees, managers, and founders alike—that makes us all feel responsible for our shared values.
Founder and VP of Community, David Spinks, says it best:
Within the remote landscape, community building is paramount. Powerful communities support team members, providing a sense of camaraderie and enabling strategic connections worldwide. They act as a source of tangible advice that community members can apply to their careers or businesses. Not to mention, community members often share a passion for continuous growth and learning.
Above all, impactful communities spark changes. They’re not a “who’s who” of what’s happening right now in the world, but a “who wants in” for molding what’s happening next.
In other words —
