Linn has led for re-election, while Harris said she plans to run again. Ahead of that upcoming election, the board approved changes to each of the ve trustee district maps in December. The changes were made after the 2020 census showed the larg- est district was 12% bigger than RISD’s smallest district, Chief Financial O- cer David Pate said.

Co-owner Gene Tran said the Richardson restaurant will be the rst brick-and-mortar location for Okaeri Cafe, which has previously operated as a ghost kitchen and pop-up eatery. “[Okaeri Cafe is] going to bring some comfort Japanese foods and some coee and tea to the area,” Tran said. “[The menu includes] rice sandwiches, some rice bowls, a fun hot dog menu and also our signature is the omurice, which is a uy egg over fried rice and demi-glace sauce.” Tran said Okaeri Cafe will have various, imported teas from Japan, including matcha, as well as “a solid” coee menu. The positive response Okaeri Cafe’s oerings have produced over the last couple years was enough for the

eatery to move into a “more stable location” in Richardson, Tran said. “We were open to [locating in] multiple areas—it just had to make sense for us,” he said. “Then the spot we found in Richardson just kind of ticked all the boxes, and it made sense to come and be here.” A phone number is not yet available. www.instagram.com/okaeri_cafe/

RICHARDSON EDITION • JANUARY 2022

I enjoy working at Text-Em-All because it offers an environment where I’malways learning, being challenged, and am encouraged to challenge others. I get to work alongside hard- working teammembers who have a common base of values that help us achieve clearly defined goals.

Text-Em-All founders Brad Herrmann and Hai Nguyen are committed to operating a people-first company, and have kept that mission at the center of every decision related to 'return to office' plans.

Investment in hybrid workmodel becoming a competitive advantage for Frisco tech company

The opportunity to build stronger teams and cross- department relationships was a major factor in software company Text-Em-All’s decision to begin a hybrid work model experiment this fall. Starting in November, Text-Em- All began designating two

For example, leading up to the return to the office, company leaders created “TEA Talks,” short for “Text-Em-All Talks,” by grouping employees together to ask non-work questions and help coworkers get to know each other. “We just noticed those relationships that you can build so easily when you’re with someone else at the office, that we took that for granted,” said Hai Nguyen, Text-Em-All Founder and Head of Product. “We found as the pandemic got longer, it was missing.” Text-Em-All continues to invest in building the relationships the company values so much. The “TEA Talks” were a hit and continue today, and they started a program that includes going out to lunch on the company’s dime with an employee from a different department. Since the hybrid work model began in November, longtime employee and Senior Account Manager Thomas Hoffmann said not only has it been nice to have the office camaraderie back, it has also helped with his work-life balance. “It’s nice for my family to have a schedule to know [my routine],” he said. “Having a routine and something that’s set and not always in flex helps us all be successful, beyond just coworkers but our home life, too.” Although some companies around the globe are pivoting to full-time remote work indefinitely, Text- Em-All leaders believe their team will have competitive advantage in the future due to investing in a hybrid environment. Plus, it helps result in a level playing field for everyone: No one misses the “meeting after the meeting” and employees don’t have to deal with as many hybrid internal meetings. “Being private and employee-owned allows us to make long-term decisions,” Herrmann said. “Going full remote has its advantages, but we don’t feel it holds up so well in the long run. So, we’ve come up with a model that does our best to balance the wants and needs of our team members with those of our company.” At the end of the day, a positive company culture is all about building trust and building relationships, Nguyen said. “Once we have trust, as a team we’re able to solve the tough problems,” he said.

push comes to shove, a team that has had those interactions and knows each other better will outperform the others.” Part of Text-Em-All’s company culture also centers around cross-team relationships and mentorship among junior and senior level employees. The Frisco-based software company, which specializes in delivering text messages and phone calls, employs more than 40 individuals, including software engineers, customer experience specialists and account managers. “We empower our customer service people to

engage with engineers, and we want the engineers to ask the marketing team what’s going on,” Herrmann said. “Our ultimate enemy is siloed teams.” Herrmann said Text-Em-All wants to reap the full benefit of a hybrid work model, which includes mentorship between senior- level staff and newer junior-level employees or interns. “If we’re asking a senior engineer to come to the office, that person can almost certainly get more work done at home,” he said. “But coming to the office is the other part of their job. We need senior engineers to work alongside the junior engineers and interns. We’re asking them to make the drive in to magnify their impact.” Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Text-Em-All was 100% based in the office; remote work was done occasionally, but was not the norm. The pandemic showed leadership that the company could function well remotely, but the team had to get creative to find an avenue to simulate in-person interactions.
