I’m Kiran, Founder of Yuga. This is me.
Yuga’s mission is to empower people to manage careers well — to stay in control, be proactive and intentional about it — and get companies to enable so. The Future of Work is one where individuals have more leverage than companies, as we’re already witnessing with the Great Resignation. That means two things:
pre-pandemic tools and methodologies of employee engagement, especially ones that not organic to the culture, won’t cut it anymore
management style cannot not be empathetic and biased only to company goals — a proactive, aware approach is inevitable, especially with remote
With that in mind, onto what Yuga is.
Yuga’s core is a Career Planner that lets individuals
plan their long and short-term goals
engage a mentor of choice
maintain a private work (brag) journal to keep track of wins throughout the year
keep/take Yuga beyond their current job — Yuga uses LinkedIn for login, not enterprise login
Yuga allows managers
to work with employees right on their Career Planner to learn aspirations, coach and empower them — for proactive retention
to acknowledge employee choice of employer, since Yuga spans beyond the current job
This kind of a first-principles approach begets trust like no other. The Good Managers already do all this using ad-hoc note-taking tools — with Yuga, that playbook becomes systematic and democratic for all managers.
Note: Yuga is not another employee engagement bot or pulse survey tool.
