Remote work certainly comes with its perks; flexibility, no commuting, home comfort and improved health and well-being. On the other side of that coin though,, remote work does come with its challenges too
One of these challenges is building relationships. The lack of face-to-face interaction can make it difficult to establish trust, rapport and a sense of community.
As a solution to overcome that challenge, Glue, a firm specializing in employee engagement (previously known as Mystery), recently introduced an AI-based platform that specializes in employee engagement. The platform aims to provide HR and people executives with real-time and in-depth insights into remote workforces with machine learning and network analysis. The advanced system is capable of identifying connectivity opportunities for dispersed teams, equipping leaders with the necessary information to act on data.
Glue's new platform utilizes ML, recommendation, optimization, network science and modeling to help people leaders maximize employee connection and engagement. The company incorporated sequencing and optimization ML models to better understand what works to keep companies connected and engaged. This enables leaders to achieve the highest ROI for moving connection and engagement.
This technology is designed to equip leaders with the information they require to comprehend and act on data. By offering a more profound and real-time insight into remote workforces, Glue's advanced technology allows for a better understanding of remote workforces, ensuring that leaders can make data-driven decisions to maximize employee connection and engagement.
To further enhance the distributed employee workforce experience, Glue also acquired PopStage, a HR software company focused on creating virtual experiences.
PopStage offers various solutions for recruiting, onboarding and employee engagement, all of which are designed to be immersive and engaging. Their software is intended to create a more inclusive and diverse work environment by providing an engaging virtual platform where employees can connect with each other, learn new skills and build relationships.
“With our acquisition of PopStage and the launch of our newest connection platform, we’re further helping customers unlock the power of employee connections and driving retention,” said Shane Kovalsky, co-founder and CEO of Glue.
The launch of Glue’s new platform and the acquisition of PopStage are indicators of the company’s commitment to helping organizations build connections that drive retention.
