Don’t overthink it. It’s a great idea. My firm pairs people for coffee talks. The person I met with last time asked for other suggestions of people to connect with. I thought it was great they were taking initiative to keep up connections. Good luck!

So we are a remote-first company. We’re working on this new concept for a virtual Sales breakfast where the team can all get together first thing In the am to welcome our new hires. We wanted to send everyone a DoorDash gift card so that could order breakfast/coffee and we treat it kinda like a happy hour. The problem is that we have folks in the US AND Canada. Apparently, if you live in the US you can’t buy DoorDash gift cards for Canada. Does anyone suggestions for a workaround?

Asking for another suggestion. As i mentioned in my other post I just started a new job 2 months ago. I don’t know what are my rights and how I should approach this. Corporate is in CA and I was given an office behind a store. The office space is very dirty with creatures getting in. They already called a company to come to spray something but I just don’t feel comfortable working there. I have asked if I can work from home until they find a different location but my manager said no.
