Build a stronger team culture today, no matter where you work
For teams in and out of the office, fikaTime is a Microsoft Teams App that builds socially connected teams by pairing up employees for a random (virtual) coffee. Some intentional downtime and human conversation.

How does it work?
Add the FikaTime bot to a communication tool we support. Invite your employees to join the channel(they can opt-out whenever they want). Once a week, Fikatime will pair up employees in that channel and invite them to grab a (remote) coffee together in dedicated downtime.
These gentle nudges are the best way to encourage new growth and avoiding old habits. We know scheduling is personal, so we leave the when and the where up to them. At the end of the week, the bot closes the feedback loop by asking how things went. Get insights on what really matters.
Why is this useful?
Break Down Silos
London, meet South Africa, Accounts, meet Support, Experience, meet new perspective. Build bridges where organisational structure creates walls. Drive diversity in your culture by building empathy through conversation.
Foster Inclusive relationships & collaboration
Inclusive by design: Introduce employees that may not get a chance to meet & encourage stronger bonds between those that have. A bit of shared downtime not only creates better relationships but also increases creativity and productivity.
Designed for Human Behaviour
We need to stop trying to manage people like we manage data. Humans are not designed for isolation. Let’s go back to basics with a culture of trust and collaboration built one relationship at a time. Help your team disconnect from work with small breaks for sustainable mental wellbeing.
It’s a simple and powerful concept that you could try to manage manually but that is a lot of additional admin time in the long run. This is the main focus for the bot. We aim to do one thing exceptionally well so that you can get back to adding value to the organisation.

What is "Fika"
Fika is Swedish for a coffee break that’s more about socializing than drinking coffee. And something sweet is also welcome.
