📝 Internal Blogging: Going Deeper

“Every new hire is encouraged to write a welcome blog — where you come from, your hobbies and pictures — fun pages usually. Almost every employee that leaves writes a really nice goodbye letter as well. People use memes, gifs, and emojis to show their personality. You’ll also get updates from engineers, for example if they tried a new way of doing sprints or a new way to code.”

The Transparency Process

💊 The Zoombie Cure

“We heavily use Slack (and Confluence) for non-video communication, however, sometimes that isn’t rich enough feedback but you don’t want to jump on a formal 30-minute Zoom call. Instead we’ve been experimenting with other asynchronous video platforms like Loom to record video updates or screenshares. Videos…but on your time.”
