We're here to make remote work fun!
We are an online community of new and seasoned remote workers who support each other day to day, sharing advice, tips and resources to help each other adopt enjoyable remote work. We're not your colleagues, we're your remote workmates and we're here to make sure remote work is never lonely work.
A diverse and global gathering of people, we also host group discussions and events such as our Wellbeing Week which includes virtual yoga, mindfulness and exercise sessions. We even have an ongoing challenge to collectively exercise our way around the world twice- the World 365 Loop!
We might not work for the same people, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy work together.
Remote Workmates was created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. The resulting self-isolation protocol forced the world into remote working, and with it more uncertainty among the working population.
Founded by a group of experienced remote workers, the community has been created to give newly remote workers the opportunity to connect with each other and with those who have been remote working for a long time.
Our hope is for this to be a community of people who come together in a crisis but who stay together for the longer term enjoyment of remote work.
How it Works

1. Meet each other as remote workers new and old.
2. Join our buddy scheme to support the adoption of remote working
3. Participate in group activities and challenges

It's FREE to join Remote Workmates, and we'd be delighted to welcome you to the community.
