Earlier this month, Ben Waber was interviewed by Workplace Insight’s IN Magazine to discuss learnings from the pandemic, and how Humanyze’s actionable, hard data helps companies inform and validate the right #workplace decisions with speed and certainty. Here is an excerpt from the interview:
“I think that there is a very healthy way to start to look at workplace issues, rather than just talking about trends for no reason other than the fact that someone who says they’re an expert says this is a good thing to do. Sometimes it might be, but there needs to be a lot more reliance on the hard facts.”
