Connect with your colleagues, no matter where you areConnect with your colleagues for virtual coffee, peer learning, birthday and work anniversary celebrations, DEI discussions, and more.
We all need good relationships with our colleagues. Having genuine friendships with the people we work with makes us more efficient, 7 times more engaged, and can increase our happiness as much as a $100,000 raise [*].
Donut has helped over 15,000 teams, including Okta, Betterment, Gitlab, Zapier, and InVision, make 6+ million connections among colleagues across different departments, offices, and continents.
Donut can connect teams of all sizes across the organization in three ways: by suggesting in-person or virtual meetings, asynchronous chat, and fun birthday and work anniversary celebrations.
Teams use Donut for many different purposes:
• Socializing + chatting:
chat regularly in a channel, have virtual coffee meetings, CEO coffee lotteries, recognize birthdays and work anniversaries, and have lunch with colleagues
• Remote or hybrid employees:
organize remote team lunches, regular Donut meetings, and cross-department introductions
create peer mentorship programs, code review partners, and sales demo buddies
• Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) + Employee Resource Groups (ERGs):
lead discussion groups on diversity, equity, and inclusion, and support employee resource groups
• New hires:
connect new hires through onboarding buddies, new hire lunches, or job shadowing
