In today’s workplace, people spend 61% of their time managing work rather than doing it. That’s the equivalent of three days a week searching for information, slogging through emails, and navigating teamwork. But what if it didn’t have to be like that? We want to bring that 61% as close to zero as possible. So we’re building products that make it easier to find the information you need, stay up to date on projects, and work more seamlessly as a team. And today, we have the first of those products and features ready for you.
The new year is your clean slate. Whether you’re starting a new job, kicking off a new project, or working with a new client, this is the perfect time to try new tools that can make your team more productive. Here’s how Dropbox Paper can help.
Over 75% of people using Dropbox today come from outside the US—with different needs and backgrounds. We believe it takes a diverse team to build innovative products that delight users, and we’re committed to building an inclusive culture that reflects the world around us.
Last year, we were very proud that Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI), awarded Dropbox a perfect score for LGBTQ equality in the workplace. Today, we’re happy to announce that we have achieved that perfect score again for 2017, and that Fortune Great Places to Work has named us a Best Workplace for Diversity, as well as a Best Workplace for Asian Americans. These recognitions underscore our commitment to creating a diverse, inclusive, and supportive community at Dropbox.
Does your company have practices in place for employees to express gratitude?
