SAN FRANCISCO, June 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Globant
(NYSE: GLOB), a digitally native technology services company, today
presented Augmented Collaboration to help organizations
prepare for the future of work, overcoming today's challenges by
using technology to scale up company culture, promote innovation
and increase productivity.
In an environment where casual, in-person interactions across
offices have largely disappeared, organizations need to reassess
how to better connect and engage their people from afar. As
relationships have evolved, so too have the way people collaborate,
spark up innovation and boost productivity. A Globant report,
"Supporting employee productivity during COVID-19," revealed that
almost half (49%) of respondents' work output has decreased since
working from home, largely due to communication difficulties. To
combat these obstacles, Globant presents an approach that leverages
technology to promote collaboration, augment engagement and develop
"Today, when informal face-to-face interactions are no longer
possible, leaders should ask themselves how to replicate those
spontaneous dynamics which were a key source of innovation," said
Martín Migoya, CEO and co-founder of Globant. "In this sense,
formal and scheduled interactions done via virtual communications
tools will not do the trick. Companies need to embrace new ways of
propelling productivity. Augmented Collaboration provides new
methods for ensuring employees feel engaged and can continuously
learn and improve."

- Flipping the
traditional organizational chart – People tend to feel that
employees are less productive when they are not physically in an

continuously, think systemically and adapt to change
- Creating better company
cultures – The StarMeUp Operating System seeks to enable
leaders to understand the human element within their organizations.
It helps companies detect and retain talent, promote integration
and foster the company's growth, using AI to uncover cultural
insights. StarMeUp also recovers interactions that have been lost
in light of face-to-face office interactions.
- Augmenting teams'
capabilities and filling in the gaps – When employees no
longer have colleagues sitting next to them to ask for suggestions
or to learn from, AI can become the solution to augment teams'
skills and their inner collaboration. Augmented Coding can shorten
the learning curve as they can receive suggestions to improve their
work and examples of different solutions.
