Happy Cog profile

How do you maintain flexibility & balance for your team?

We have been a remote-friendly company for many years, and about half of our staff works remotely. A healthy balance between work and personal life is one of our most important values; we make sure that our whole team is working reasonable hours, not overdoing it, and prioritizing family first. We also support flexible hours and alternative schedules to make sure people can work the schedule that makes the most sense.

How do you ensure autonomy and plan for the future?

We take steps to support deep work (it leads to the best, most rewarding work) and encourage the team to set their Slack to "away" when needed, treat chat as asynchronous, and mute rooms as needed.

Our communication style is a mix. We use JIRA (which is asynchronous) for all task assignments and primary communication on tasks, but also have Slack for real-time communication.

How do you support your team to grow and improve?

We know that our team is our most important asset so invest heavily in their growth and improvement. If someone shows a particular interest in something, we'll often let them spend time exploring and tinkering with it — on company time — even if we're not yet using that technology or system in production work. We also have a large library of ebooks and e-learning video subscriptions, and pay for conferences, certifications, and other continuing education resources.
