Peoplelogic For Employees

Thanks for your interest in Peoplelogic!  If you're on this page, then your organization is using Peoplelogic (or considering using Peoplelogic) to help improve how their teams operate. 

Companies like yours are using Peoplelogic to:

Help managers have visibility into each team member's capacity
Save time pulling reports and analyzing data that is fragmented across tools
Help managers and leaders understand and improve how teams impact each other
Create a data-driven context for more engaging 1:1s and team meetings

What this means for you is that your organization cares about helping its managers and leaders improve their understanding of how works gets done, using data - not bias and gut.  You get the benefit of an improved employee experience, better collaboration across teams and a lower chance of burnout from your team being overcapacity.

Let's take a look at the information your organization has decided you should have access to in Peoplelogic!

First Things First - Login

Before you can access Peoplelogic, you need to login.  Your administrator should have send you credentials via email.  You'll need to activate your account, which includes choosing a password and setting up two-factor authentication.  If your organization is using SSO, you'll be redirected to your normal company-wide authentication to login.

Your Employee Dashboard

The screenshot below highlights some of the key components for your personal dashboard.  Let's dive into what each of these means and how they can be used to build more effective teams.

1. StayFactor

Your StayFactor is the measure of your experiences to date within your team and organization. More details at:

2. Skills

The Skills section contains your strengths.  These were entered during the initial setup of Peoplelogic (if these don't look right - please mention it to your manager to update them!).  Your manager and their manager has a similar view on the team page that shows the skills that they think the team needs to achieve their goals vs what the team has available.  They can then use this information in reporting to help justify for additional hires to help improve capacity and ease the overall burden on the team when you're getting ready for a new project.  The skills can also be useful when forming project specific teams to ensure that the team has everything it needs to achieve the desired results.

3. Key Metrics, Focus & Top Recommendation

Transparency and trust are the key components of a healthy and effective team.  The Key Metrics component on your dashboard highlights the shared metrics that help your team achieve your goal.  These metrics are selected by your manager with the help of their manager.  These may change based on what things your manager feels are most important to understand. 

The focus component helps you understand how you spend your day and how this compares to the rest of team.  When you're feeling like you haven't been able to achieve all you set out to achieve lately, this component can be a great first step to understanding where your time went.  Get to the bottom of "all the other things" that distract you from focus during the day!

Recommendations are the nudges that help your team operate most effectively.  These recommendations make great conversation starters during your 1:1s with your manager or during team meetings. 

The recommendations range from employee experience to operational items like identifying broken processes to surfacing hidden influencers within the organization.  Your manager can get a daily or weekly email with the recommendations for their team included so that they are able to take action at the point where it can make the most impact.      

4. Timeline

This one is pretty self-explanatory.  A timeline of recent public activity by you in the various systems that your organization has connected to Peoplelogic.  We don't surface things from tools like Office or Google Workspace in the timeline (or to your manager!).

This chart gives you and your manager a clear sense of where you are the most effective.  Everyone has different rhythms and hours that they're productive - but there's still a human limit on how long someone can be focused.  This graph helps everyone stay on the same page about whether someone is burning the candle at both ends and needs a break.
