The reality of WFH – Uplevel users reveal what’s happening at work
We analyzed the Uplevel user base to see what’s happened since March across Deep Work, meetings, PR throughput and burnout risk. What we saw: Your employees are working harder than ever and need help avoiding burnout. We’re here to help.
There’s no way around it: you can only work so much until you burn out.

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.
