Humu Launches Business Edition, Making Effective Teamwork a Habit For Mid-Sized Businesses

Humu Business Edition leverages years of success with the Fortune 500 to help companies of any size strengthen their teams in the transition to hybrid work.

Humu, the technology company using AI-driven nudges to help organizations improve team morale, engagement and performance, announced Humu Business Edition, a tailored package of nudges —short, timely, science-backed recommendations— that enable mid-sized businesses to build highly effective teams through personalized, virtual coaching.

A Gartner survey shows that 99% of surveyed HR leaders expect their employees to work remotely some of the time, making many of the challenges and issues that teams naturally face even harder to address. Through Humu’s work with large enterprises, Humu has seen firsthand—and in the People Analytics data—what makes a successful team. Companies of all sizes face common struggles: how to keep everyone in the loop, how to build and maintain a strong company culture, and how to distribute opportunities fairly. Hybrid work only magnifies these challenges, making it harder for leaders to pivot team priorities and drive cultural change. HR Leaders will be on the forefront of handling issues such as retention, performance, inclusion, and stress management. At the same time, managers, who are already overburdened from the past year, will have the responsibility of ensuring that teams—many transitioning to hybrid work—are working effectively.
