Twilio Increases Employee Engagement with BetterUp
Michelle has been with Twilio for nearly four years, supporting “Twilions” — as employees are affectionately known inside the company — through tremendous growth in both revenue and headcount. BetterUp’s whole person approach was a key part of Michelle’s evaluation process.
Most leadership development approaches focus on teaching people what to do. But what they miss is an equal focus on how to be. BetterUp’s approach addresses the psychological resources that allow leaders to manage themselves so they have the capacity to manage others. Giving them the ability to remain resilient, have a growth mindset, maintain a sense of control, and take risks. Evidence shows that these resources need to be in place for sustainable leadership habits to take root.
“We’re looking at creating a great employee experience at Twilio. We want to provide Twilions with the tools, resources, and experiences they need to innovate, scale, and grow.”
