Crowdsource your team's interests to create interest groups.

Interest surveys allow you to crowdsource your team's interests and automatically create groups and Slack channels based on those interests. Showing users what shared interests they have is great way to build lasting connections!

Send watercooler topics to help spark a conversation.

Post watercooler topics on in a channel of your choosing and watch the connections build. Use pre-set topic packages - from food, to photo shares, to aspirations - or even create topics of your own! Share some laughs and smiles and learn more about each of your teammates.

Set up meetup roulettes to introduce teammates to one another.

If nothing else works, you can always just fallback on introductions. From single channel intros, channel-to-channel intros, to even new hire intros, meetups roulettes can help teammates break the ice and get to know one another on a personal level.
