Most of these sound awful, and the ones that are “not so voluntary” attempts to make sure workers are engaged sound even worse.

Actually, I suspect they are doing a lot more harm to engagement than good.

There are ways to network during this time. They’re different, they’re a little more work, and they take some getting used to. But they don’t need to be ridiculous, and they definitely don’t need to be forced.

In fact, this is a great time to simply send someone a note asking for 15-30 minutes of their time. Most of us are pretty open to doing exactly that with coworkers or peers in our industry. I’d be happy to find some time to have a conversation with you about my industry, or mental health, or blogging. Or even to just have a coffee or beer with virtually. We don’t even need to be on our webcams if you don’t want.

See, isn’t that better than having 50 people on mute while the CEO talks, or getting randomly matched with coworkers?

You know what, I hadn’t thought about this, but it is true. How differently we view a request for a call or quick online chat than we did just a few months ago?

“If you think now is a bad time to network it’s because you think networking is about events. It’s not. It’s about connection and conversation. And so, while now is a terrible time for events, it’s a great time for connection and conversation. All the more so because you can more easily expand your geographic reach. Asking for a Zoom call or even a phone call would have seemed awkward with some folks just a few months ago. Now it’s just how we do things.
