Yelp Presents: The Importance of Team Ground Rules in Virtual Settings
Start Date: 5/25/2021Start Time: 3:15 PM
End Date: 5/25/2021End Time: 4:00 PM

Event Description

Last year, when the COVID-19 pandemic started, we were faced with an unprecedented situation as our teams suddenly began working remotely from home. With so many aspects of our lives impacted, both personally and professionally, many of us had to rethink how we could still work efficiently on our teams. In this new situation, the team I manage at Yelp quickly got together and redefined what we call “Team Ground Rules.” These ground rules set clearer expectations, especially for communicating and interacting in a virtual environment. Today, these changes continue to help us work effectively and efficiently as a team. During this talk, I will go into detail about the importance of team ground rules, how we implemented them, and how they helped us during the pandemic.
