At Macoscope, we put people first. Let’s be frank, without the amazing people making up the staff, we would never be where we are today. About a year ago, when we made the decision to expand the scope of our operations and hire new employees, we’ve already had over 20 people on board. To avoid problems brought on by such rapid growth, we decided that it would be a good idea to have someone on staff keeping an eye on the wellbeing of everyone else. That is why we created a dedicated position of Chief Wellbeing Officer: we needed someone to help us take good care of our team, to keep everything running smoothly behind the scenes, and to drive a culture that has made our team happy to work for us.
With headquarters in Warsaw and an office in New York, our reach is truly global.
In the previous installment of this series that I wrote back in February, I shared the details on the inner workings of our team. This time around, I would like to focus on one additional and very important aspect of our daily efforts: remote work.
Over the past 6 months our team expanded from 15 people to over 30+ and, as one can imagine, we experienced the entire range of issues that can stem from such a growth. Not only did we have a lot of new names to learn, we also had to find the solutions and tools that would make our collaboration smoother and more effective.
