One-on-One meetings are crucial for building a robust and professional relationship based on empathy and trust between managers and direct reports. They are even more critical at a remote-first company like BrainGu, where proverbial watercooler conversations and check-ins aren’t possible.
Marketing & Communications Manager
In the early days of BrainGu, we were working on our first government contract, and in the process of developing and establishing our remote team communications protocols. We discovered a gap in our methods. We didn’t have a non-intrusive way to acknowledge a message. If someone were to reply to a comment with “Got it,” or “Roger,” or any variation a notification would be sent out to everyone associated with that message, which was quite unnecessary.
The Alliance for Commercial Technology in Government represents startups and the commercial tech sector, advocating for policies that can improve our government services and maintain our competitive advantage by bringing more tech into government programs.
