Uplevel launches new features to support remote work
How we work and manage our teams has changed overnight. We launched three new features for teams to track burnout, social isolation, and throughput to make sure teams are getting work done while staying sane.
If in-person conversations and email combined, they would create the communication icon that is Slack. The messaging app describes itself with confidence: “It's faster, better organized, and more secure than email.” It’s no surprise that over 750,000 companies use it.
Regardless of your new normal—or however long it’s been since you even thought of the word “normal”—every engineering team has experienced significant change this year.
We’re not going back to normal, but we’re still going back to school. This academic year will be unlike any other, with many parents working at home while introducing their kindergarteners to Zoom.
Greater Than Code is a podcast that invites the voices of people who are not heard from enough in tech: women, people of color, trans and/or queer folks, to talk about the human side of software development and technology.
Engineering teams have focused so much on adapting to remote work that some mainstays of office life fell out of mind. During a year of unprecedented stress, we nearly forgot a good thing: vacation time.
Uplevel is launching revolutionary new reports to shape effective 1:1s. Gone are the days of aimless chit-chat about vague growth. Instead, we anchor key discussion questions with insightful, recent data from your team’s Uplevel dashboards, like Jira activity, PRs, Deep Work time, and burnout risk.
