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.
The coronavirus pandemic that led to shelter-in-place orders across the nation caused a radical pivot to fully remote teams. While it might be temporary, the dramatic lifestyle shift will undoubtedly have a long lasting impact. As engineering teams adapt, the question stands:
How can we support our remote teams to be their best?
On our eternal quest toward more effective productivity, we spend a lot of time thinking about meetings. Uplevel looks at everything from time spent in meetings to prevalence of multitasking during them (we can’t quit you, Slack), giving a sense of overall “Meeting Health.”
In our latest edition of Startups to Watch, we look at how the pandemic has transformed five venture capital–backed companies, from nascent businesses to more mature startups including Arianna Huffington’s Thrive Global.
Engineering managers and leaders are charged with a challenging task: How do they support engineers to do their best work—and how do they know if it’s happening? Ideally, that support begins by guiding your engineers in setting goals, later analyzing the data to see how they are tracking.
