Guru Technologies, Inc. profile
How do you maintain flexibility & balance for your team?
How do you ensure autonomy and plan for the future?
We deploy a DRI (Directly Responsible Individual) model at Guru, in regards to decision making. Most of the decisions we need to make will be made quickly, with a strong emphasis on Learning over Right or Wrong. We believe that in many cases making a decision quickly, even if it ends up being wrong, is better than not making any decision. We look for decisions to be thoughtful and informed, but delivering fast results requires a Learn and Grow mindset. The DRI is a title given to the person who is ultimately responsible for a decision and making sure a project is completed. The goal is to provide clarity on the specific person that will ultimately make a given decision in order to ensure that things progress quickly towards an outcome.
How does your company try to hire people from underrepresented groups and improve the diversity of your team?
We have had required DEIB training every year since 2018; unconscious bias, race in the workplace and this year, we facilitated trainings on aggressions & microaggressions. We also facilitated trainings on implicit bias and its impacts in the workplace more broadly, as well as how implicit bias appears in recruiting practices and in performance management systems.
