Looking Inwards - Things We Learned About Ourselves And Our Research Practice From Our Internal COVID-19 Surveys.

In the days after Atlassian offices closed and 5000 staff made the mass transition to working from home across the business, the Research & Insights team joined forces with our People team to make sure we had a plan to understand the impacts this global event was having our our people, and what we needed to to do make sure people were safe and well. This case study looks at some of the things we learned from that study. There are some interesting insights from the data, but equally importantly, some things we learned about what makes a truly effective research program that we can apply more generally to all our research work.
