Why Digital Office?
ReSocialize’s Digital Office makes it easier to create and maintain a company culture and adding a greater value by helping everyone stay connected, boosting morale and group cohesion.
Being present on the office floor
When asked, almost half of those who work remotely believe that remote work will make it more difficult for them to grow within the company and almost 15% see this as a main struggle with working remotely.
A Digital Office will help reduce those numbers by helping retain high performing talent.
One of the greatest challenges with remote work today is that the informal conversations has disappeared.
Video calls demand our full attention and doesn’t invite to casual “watercooler talk”. We can help reintroduce the informal chats that result in a culture and friendships that reduce employee turnover.
Remote onboarding can be challenging as it can be difficult to provide the same level of hands-on training and mentorship as in-person onboarding.
The social aspect is missing. The Digital Office will strengthen the hands-on experience in the onboarding process through a virtual office the same way a physical would.
Lonliness is boring, uninspiring and down right dangerous.
HOW A Digital OFFICE CAN HELP WITH
For an employee to feel that they can grow within the company they need to feel that they are seen, that others see and appreciate what they do. This is very hard to do in a remote environment where we only talk in pre-booked meetings over video calls. It is in the informal conversations we have that we feel seen and appreciated, it is in that space that we give the best feedback and compliments. It doesn’t matter how good growth opportunity programs the business has if no one believes it is a option for them because they don’t feel seen.
What if we could recreate the physical office environment virtually? With ReSocialize it is possible to not only have informal conversations but also instantly show what you are working on for feedback. This makes it easier for seniors to pass down knowledge to juniors helping them grow within the business.
In a formal setting it can be hard to voice a different opinion and even harder to accept being wrong. Informal settings reduce pressure and risk of open conflict.
For juniors to share office space with seniors is how they grow and learn all the big and small nuances of a workplace. The seniors can also get a better feel for the potential of a talent. Making it easier to create cross-functional teams.
By offering a space where feedback isn’t as easily perceived as criticism it improves the speed and quality of the work being done.
“Credit where credit is due” is a common expression. The best credit however is when it is given genuinely without prompt. That means, not in a formal meeting.

The biggest problem today with remote work is that it is almost impossible to create an internal company culture. Having group cohesion and a positive internal sense of belonging is one of the best ways to retain talent in a business. However, by not offering remote work makes a workplace much less attractive in the first place and reduces the potential talent pool by a significant margin.
With a Digital Office you enable the informal conversations that creates culture, the inside jokes, banter and simply keeping track of how everyone is feeling. This is very hard through a video call nor through a chat for most people. Video causes pressure to perform which formalizes the conversation while chat is too informal with little to no way to interpret how something is said. Without the watercooler talk it is increasingly challenging to create an internal company culture.

To be able to give a comprehensive and qualitative onboarding there needs to be constant and close communication. Being able to onboard remotely poses a unique challenge in this perspective. With the ReSocialize platform it is possible to work side by side, asking questions and having informal conversation that can convey tips and tricks that otherwise would be lost due to the formal nature of video calls/meetings.
A comprehensive onboarding ensures that the new hire feels confident, understands the job and the organization they are to work within.
