10 Valentine’s Day Cards for your #LongDistance Colleagues

14th February 2019 Off By Ashima Madan

This Valentine’s Day, thank your long-distance colleagues who support you through low and high-speed wifi with these cards from Abodoo. Whether you are working remotely or remotely working today, have a Happy Valentine’s day across all time zones!

 

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Roses are red, violets are blue. My tasks are done, thanks to you!

1. We all have that one colleague who is Mr. or Ms. dependable. Without them, all our plans of action fail and working without them feels like a punishment. If you don’t have anyone like that in your life, chances are that you are that person in someone’s life. This Valentine’s Day Card is for the long-distance colleague who is your right hand from several miles away and makes sure you get things done.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

 

Our hearts are connected by the Wi-Fi. 2. Wi-Fi feels like a roof over the head to companies that work remotely. And rightly so, it’s literally where your company address is housed. But for the employees, it’s the chord that connects you to your colleagues. If you panic when your favourite colleague is offline for several hours, then send them this Valentine’s Day card.

There's nobody else i'd rather wake up to.

3. When you wake up to the sweet sweet Good Morning messages (often followed by the tasks list of the week, and company goals for the month), it becomes a habit. Send this to your daily meeting partner or the long-distance colleague whose email reaches you before the morning paper.

With you, it was love at first Skype.4. Not everybody realises this at first. But video calls feel just as real as being face to face. Long-lasting professional relationships have been forged purely based on interactions that people have online. If you know someone who wowed you the first time you met them online, then compliment their charismatic e-personality with this Valentine’s Day card.

Our engagement has become the latest goss. 5. Your hardworking content team has definitely come up with a witty idea for Valentine’s Day. Make sure you support them, (yes, everyone @Abodoo, this is for you!! :P) by sharing their work on your personal feeds and giving them this compliment. They will be super happy to see that you noticed.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

I love you with each and every cell in my spreadsheet. 6. Collaboration with your long-distance colleagues is easier with the technology available. However, in spite of the tech tools available, what matters most is the resilience of your team. If there’s someone whose deidication touches you to the core, then thank them for their grit with this card.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Love you for being the most prompt Slacker! 7. If you use Slack then you know someone who responds almost before you even write anything to them. You often wonder if they live inside Slack or they have programmed an AI to respond to their messages. Let them know you appreciate their responsiveness with this card.

You make meetings zoom by!8. Online meetings, just like offline meetings can be a drag. While remote working, it is also one of the rare times you touch base with your colleagues ‘in person’, and thus formalities must be exchanged. Unnecessary details and discussions often make people digress from the point and the constant “can you hear me” makes it super annoying. While zoom video conferencing might deal with the technical lags and issues, very few are able to spearhead the meeting efficiently in such situations. If you know someone who you appreciate for the way they respect everyone’s time on a video conference call, then let them know with this Valentine’s Day card.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

 

Time zones may separate us, but midnight emergencies unite us. In case of impossible deadlines, break slumber. 9. Working across time zones can make it extremely difficult to hold calls at everyone’s convenience. But what matters is prioritisation. Magical teams are able to assign priority to issues that need to be dealt with in a timely fashion and yet create a balance that does not put pressure on its team members. Send this to thank the long-distance colleague who has worked after hours to fit into your schedule.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

 

Seasons may come and go but I'll always be there for you.10. Be it rain, snow, or a heat wave. When you’re working remotely, you know your colleagues will show up unless the internet is cut off. Send this to your office spouse to thank them for being there, come what may. And promise them to be there for them too.
