Building community does not happen overnight. Authentic community is all about gradually building trust between members, creating a safe space for people to connect and building genuine relationships. From that place of comfort, people can grow, innovate and thrive.
This guide will serve as a valuable resource throughout your community-building journey on MixR. You’ll find insights on finding your people, getting the most out of the platform and ensuring mutual respect, safety and trust throughout your communities.
Genuine connections rely on genuine people. When creating your profile, you’ll be prompted to enter your interests, passions and hobbies. This step will go a long way in helping you discover communities that align with your interests and connect with like-minded colleagues. This information can either be kept private, or be available for others to see – it’s all up to you.
From there, feel free to join as many groups and mixrs that spark your interest. Please note that some groups are set to private, meaning you will either need to be invited or request to join them. Interact with these communities by attending mixrs, sharing updates and privately messaging others. If you don’t see a pre-existing group centered around one of your interests, you are encouraged to create one and invite others to join. We know how valuable it is to build friendships in the workplace, and have a safe place to have meaningful conversations. We hope this platform will help you find your tribe and do just that.
To get the most out of your workplace communities, they need to be built with purpose and patience. At MixR, we call them communities@work, and they’re structured around shared interests, regular in-person meetings, open discussions and active engagement.
Creating communities where anyone will feel welcome and supported is every member’s responsibility. Embracing and accepting all – regardless of their differences – will create a better day-to-day experience at work and infuse more life into your communities.
We hope this guide provides you with all the tools you need to create vibrant and well-rounded communities that act as a safe space for everyone to feel supported, gain inspiration, learn from one another, create amazing content and more.
