We are BIG believers in calendars. Along with an email account, any employee receives an exchange account to Office365 that includes a calendar. All meetings are handled through it to allow people to keep an overview of where they will be needed and when.

Monthly Employee Talk
Each month, technology team members are asked to sit together with the CTO Patrick, CIO Nikolai and (usually) Company Founder Daniel to discuss the employees performance, to exchange feedback and make sure all sides are happy working together.
Once per month another team of the company organizes a breakfast for everybody else. We all pitch in with ideas and getting it done to spennd some time catching up with each other and spending some regularly scheduled time with other teams. Each breakfast is accompanied by a talk or presentation by a member of the organizing team.
Monthly Company Meeting
Once per month all employees gather together to inform each other as part of a small presentation about what is new in the company. New employees are introduced again, numbers are openly discussed and revenue projections are shown.
