The team will look to have owners of services or features, and these services working will be the way they prove that they are actually delivering. Infrastructure has also increased uptime to 99.91% in [December 2016](http://stats.pingdom.com/81vpf8jyr1h9/1902794/2016/12).

1. If you manage a large team, it may be useful to add your planned time off as a **FYI** on the next agenda of the company call.
1. If you are an interviewer, review your calendar to address any scheduled interviews. To ensure we provide a great candidate experience, if you find that you cannot attend an interview, you will be responsible for finding a replacement interviewer. You must communicate directly with your recruiter, as being out of the office does not always mean that you will be unavailable to interview.
1. If you're one of the people who typically handle availability emergencies (the on-call heroes), you **do** need to ensure that someone will be available to cover for you while you're out of office. You can check for this with your manager. Managers can import their team's calendars into their Google Calendar to get a quick view of their team members' availability.

GitLab, for example, has created an internal system to coordinate weekly “[digital coffee breaks](/company/culture/all-remote/#coffee-break-calls)” between its employees, who are encouraged to dedicate a few hours a week to having social calls with any teammate. They can also join a Slack channel where, every Monday, a bot will pair them with a random team member. This way, GitLab is creating intentional spaces for spontaneous and personal connection to happen between its employees.

## Working collaboratively
After doing my research, I’ll make my calls and send out emails throughout the day. If I’m stuck on something, I’ll reach out to my team, hop on a video call with someone, and collaborate to come up with a strategy or solution. One of the most refreshing aspects about working at GitLab is that everyone is willing to help each other. We’re encouraged to build bonds with each other, so I schedule regular [coffee chats](/company/culture/all-remote/#coffee-break-calls) to make a new friend or catch up with an old one. Everyone from our CEO to our newest ’Labber is happy to join a coffee call. In my first week, I messaged our [Chief People Officer](/job-families/people-ops/chief-people-officer/), and we chatted the next day. I’ve never worked at an organization that encouraged its executive team to make themselves so available to others.

In addition to collaboration, GitLab values flexibility. If I have a doctor’s appointment, errands to run, or just decide that I want to take a longer lunch and embrace food coma, I have the freedom to do so. As a results-driven organization, GitLab is concerned about your productivity – not your hours.
