Finding your work bestie at work, especially in a hybrid work environment, can be challenging. You might hesitate to take the first step and socialize with others; don't worry, it's normal.

If you feel stuck and need help finding your work bestie, this is the right place. In this blog post, we will discuss what defines a work bestie, why it's different than other friendships and explore strategies for building and maintaining that friendship in a hybrid work environment.

What’s a Work Bestie?

A "work bestie" is a colleague with whom you share a strong and unique connection in the workplace that may extend beyond work hours. Work besties hold each other in high regard and help one another inside and outside the office.

What Makes a Work Bestie Special?

There are several reasons why your work bestie might be more special than other friends in your life. Here’s the list of things that differentiate work besties from others:

  1. ⅓ Of Our Lifetime Is At Work: The average person spends around 90,000 hours at work, one-third of their life. So, you probably spend equal time with your colleagues and family.
  2. The Same Struggle: You face similar stresses and share the same struggle at work. Getting along with your colleagues is easier because they understand your work struggles better than your family.
  3. A Rock To Lean On: When you encounter similar problems, your work besties can be a rock to lean on and confide in.
  4. A Shared Room for Growth: Work besties often create a safe space for growth, both professionally and personally. They become your biggest fans and push your limits to achieve your highest performance. 

5 Tips to Find your Work Bestie in a Hybrid Work Environment

  • Enroll in a Coffe-Chat Matching Service: Yes, we know that coffee chats sound a bit cliché, but they still do the job. Virtual coffee chats are a great way to break the ice in a formal work environment. So, it paves the way to find your work bestie from the comfort of your home office.
  • Show Up in a Team Event: Team events are a terrific opportunity for employees to mingle in an informal setting. Get out of your comfort zone and be more present in team events to find your work bestie.
  • Create a Community: Sometimes, to catch a fish, you must create your own pond rather than take a boat to the lake. In other words, create your community based on your interests through communication platforms like Slack. Believe in us, and you’ll find your work bestie faster.
  • Book Your Spot at the Office: Going to the office and having face-to-face interactions are essential in finding your work bestie. Check when your team is going to the office through the work platform and book your desk/room accordingly.
  • Create Polls and Test the Waters: Let’s say you’re looking for a partner for your next adventure. Then, why not create a poll and ask whether any of your colleagues would be willing to join you?


In this guide, we defined what a work bestie stands for, what makes them special and gave some tips on how to find them. We hope that this blog becomes your reference point in your quest to find your work bestie.
