Tip 2: Set the Stageโ€”CoffeePals is Optional, but also Essential! โ˜•

When you introduce CoffeePals, let your team know this isn't another optional 'perk' that they can overlook. It's an integral part of your company culture. Schedule an all-hands meeting or a virtual coffee kickoff event, complete with real coffee delivery, to add that extra jolt of excitement.

Update company calendars with a recurring "CoffeePals Day" event.
Make it a part of the onboarding process for new employees.
