At my office, there are hundreds of people. I have been around for 12 years, and I used to know everybody. Their faces and their names! Now, I have lost control! I say – “Hi” in the elevator and introduce myself if we have not been introduced. But still, I need to get to know more of my colleagues and deepen my existing relations!
Deloitte Norway has done many actions to get people more together. I will share one very easy activity! The Coffee Roulette. It must not be confused with the Russian Roulette. 😉
What is the Coffee Roulette?
- One employee has an excel sheet with the names of everybody in my departement
- Once a month, she splits the list in two and makes random pairs
- There we have it, the Coffee roulette dates for this month
- She distributes the list to all of us via e-mail
- Now, it is up to us! I check the list and I invite for a coffee or lunch (or maybe a walk)
- Within the next weeks, I have learned to know one new colleague, and our department has facilitated 150 new or deeper relationships
Spin the roulette, make a great relationship and share happiness!
