07 Feb Personality in the workplace
What we do in work is one thing, but who we are in work is something often overlooked
Reflecting on my experience working in software development, consulting and management roles in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, one things stands out. The missed opportunity to tap into the personality of people in their work.
- But what about a remote workers personal & professional development? How do we ensure goals an employee sets are relevant, achievable and clearly linked to the outcomes the company is striving to achieve as a whole.
- How do we promote a culture of continuous feedback? Where all employees regardless of physical location have a genuine opportunity to have their say.
- How we empower employees to seek out opportunities to connect in with like minded people either for social or professional activities?
- As a manager with a remote team, how do I know if my people are engaged in their work?
The questions outlined above are just some of the areas were invested in solving. In 2016, I moved back home to Sligo from New Zealand to co-found a business called frankli. We’re building products that sit on the more human side of HR. Software that takes a bottom-up, people centric view of the workplace and sets out to improve all aspects of performance management and engagement in distributed teams.
