All of us are in the expectations business now, and with customer expectations reaching an all-time high, it’s up to companies to re-invent the wheel to stay relevant and engaged.

Managing a team remotely comes with its own set of pros and cons. If you’re managing a remote team for the first time, it’s easy to focus on the cons rather than the pros.

But you also might find yourself suddenly working at home due to unforeseen circumstances.
Especially in an era of remote work, it can be difficult to manage the morale of your customer support team.

Today, we wanted to share our remote work tech stack: the tools that have been helping us to continue working without interruption behind the scenes. Some of them we’ve been using for years; some of them have been on our radar for a while but we’re only fully utilizing them now.
First impressions can set the stage for a lasting relationship. That’s why according to Bamboo HR, employees who felt that their new hire onboarding was effective were 18x more likely to feel highly committed to their organization. You read that correctly—eighteen times! It’s for this reason InVision has dedicated time to creating a detailed, thoughtful, and pretty foolproof onboarding process for their new employees.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many companies to require employees to work from home. It’s a new normal for many, but at Grafana Labs our team has always recruited and operated with a remote-first culture in mind. To help everyone transition to a home office environment, we launched a new WFH series in which Grafana team members have been sharing their best advice for staying productive at home – yes, even if you have kids around.
