What is HAY?

HAY is a holistic, developer-focused solution that helps engineering managers lead their dev teams with compassion, context, and a sense of direction.

HAY focuses on 3 core areas. They are:

  • Wellbeing, to see how happy developers are working on projects, in teams, and at the company;
  • Team feedback, gathered from teammates, and investigates potential frictions and encourages synergies;
  • Work output, which is a context-based conversation starter about code commits, pull requests, code review comments, and documentation updates.

How does HAY work?

HAY connects to Github and Jira to extract developer data that is provided to engineering managers in context. The data is visually presented and is actionable and easy to understand. HAY is also meant to steer engineering managers toward having meaningful and empathetic conversations with their software engineers.

Engineering managers use HAY to:

✔️ Improve developers' work habits & productivity
✔️ Gather feedback & share praise
✔️️ Keep developers' skills fresh & current
✔️ Help developers set & achieve goals
✔️ Identify patterns that result in bottlenecks
✔️ Unite teams, even at a distance
✔️️ Detect burnout and intervene before it’s too late
