We consider ourselves to be very fortunate these days. monday.com is a SaaS company, which means it’s easier for our customers to purchase, especially as the tool is built for enabling remote work. But even in a company with high stability, the last month brought worry and uncertainty among the employees. Are we expected to work regularly? Will we need to work towards the same goals as before? How will we be able to work from home – on a personal level, and on the team and company level?
On March 23rd, a week before we started to work from home, Roy Mann & Eran Zinman, monday.com’s founders, sent a letter to all employees. The goal of this letter (attached here) was to reduce the uncertainty that every employee felt as much as possible. We also wanted to strengthen 3 aspects:
In this week’s episode, Roy and Eran talk to Lior Krengel about the topics discussed in the letter in order to allow the company to function in a time of rapid changes and high uncertainty.“The most important thing is to acknowledge that reality has changed, and adjust accordingly. The current situation requires everyone to adapt and this is part of the strength of startups – if you adjust, you can succeed. This is the difference between make or break – it’s a key part of a company’s ability to survive. It’s something that we always prided ourselves on and now is our biggest test.” (Eran Zinman)
