  • Darren Murph, head of remote at GitLab, on HR predictions for 2021 — “The burden for productivity will shift further towards leadership. This requires an end-to-end tool, workflow and communications audit to ensure direct reports have what they need” and are able to “share work early, often, and transparently.” I wish every company had a Head of Remote with these objectives!
