Many people currently work from home, which is undoubtedly challenging. Random encounters at the coffee machine, shared lunch breaks in the canteen or short conversations in the hallway – none of this happens at times. Support your employees in maintaining personal contact with colleagues (at least virtually). Our tool selects participants at random and organizes lunches and coffee breaks in a video conference.
How Video Networking works
One-time, individual registration
We create a customized registration page for your company. Your employees register independently via browser or smartphone. Click here for an example.
Regular, automated calendar invitations
Participating employees regularly receive calendar invitations for mutual lunches and coffee breaks in a video conference.
Matching and notification
Once an employee accepts the invitation, he gets matched with a colleague and receives an updated calendar entry with a link to enter the video conference.
Networking in the home office
Smart networking despite physical distance. Lunches and coffee breaks (even if only online) strengthen the feeling of solidarity and keep the team spirit high.
Can be used with any video conferencing system
The video lunches and coffee breaks can be held with any video conferencing system, such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Skype, Teamviewer, WebEx or via our own video solution.
Extensive preference settings
Users can make various settings, e.g. select preferred weekdays and specify the frequency of invitations.
Automated appointment coordination
Workdate not only matches the participants but also coordinates the appointments. The tool sends appointment requests, processes the answers, and blocks the times in the calendar.
Selectable group size
The video lunches and coffee breaks can take place in pairs or in a group.
Workdate supports many languages. During registration, a user can specify the language for further communication.
Users can log in to their profile, make changes, adjust preferences, or terminate their participation at any time.
Online dashboard for project managers
Project managers have access to an online dashboard. This dashboard indicates real-time information on the number of participants, activity rate, number of video meetings held, attendance and cancellation rates, and much more.
Jägermeister has grown a lot in recent years. The company developed from a family business in which everyone knew each other into an international corporation.
The system is easy to understand and very intuitive. In addition, it could be easily adapted to our requirements (we use Workdate at five locations and in three languages). It also fits in well with the employees’ daily work, as it takes individual preferences and availability into account.

Job Shadowing allows participants to look over their colleagues’ shoulders for a day. This module brings together interested parties and hosts, considers individual learning preferences, and assists in scheduling appointments.
The Mentoring module supports your employees in their search for a suitable mentor. Classically, or as reverse mentoring. The system proposes suggestions, organizes an initial meeting, and plans further sessions.
