Great stuff already! I'd like to add: video conferences are your friend!
Have buffers between meetings
If you were on-site, you'd need to walk to a meeting. Keep ~5 minutes if you're in back to back meetings to remind you to walk
Have water cooler video slots
I had an "open" video conference time where I posted a video conference link when I had 15-30 minutes at a given time and posted the link in random or other Slack channels. This helps to just chat with others.
Have art or something that can spark conversation within eyeshot of your video
It helps break the ice and gives people a little of your "flair" similar to what you'd have at your desk
I love the time slot suggestion! Brilliant!
