Managing and approving. Time Off. Our culture is high trust and results-focused. We want people to take time away to relax, think and come back energized and willing to bring their best self to work. As a people manager, it is important to consistently iterate and define what vacation-ready means for your team. All time-off requests should be recorded in BambooHR.
Location change requests. Staff agreements are conditioned upon the region of residence noted in a staff member's contract. Location change requests should be discussed with HR and your MLT member prior to providing written approval. Staff must receive written approval from the Company prior to a region relocation.
Contract approvals. If you'd like to engage with a new external partner/vendor/customer or are updating terms, confirm who should be the Contract Accountability Owner and follow e-sign process.
We strive to provide a smooth onboarding experience that enables new colleagues into a safe and compliant working environment with a strong sense of belonging. Managers should familiarize themselves with onboarding in order to appropriately fill in any gaps for their new team member.
Complete the department onboarding template prior to your new staff member's start date.
Assign an Onboarding Peer (Link w/ description to come). Managers should ask permission of a potential Onboarding Peer prior to assignment.
60 - Day New Hire Review (Link with description to come). Managers will need to select the 4-6 peers to provide peer review feedback.
Performance Reviews. Managers will be invited to a High Output Management Managers Session ahead of writing a Performance Evaluation. Managers will need to read the required chapter of High Output Management ahead of the Session. The book is also a part of the Additional Training Resources recommended for new Managers. It's suggested to read the book during onboarding or upon becoming a manager at Mattermost.
Performance Feedback. Communicating explicitly is key in managing remote staff and teams and feedback is one of the most important tools a manager has to set individuals and teams up for success.
People Partners can help provide coaching and feedback on how to approach performance issues.
