The check-in is about stepping back regularly and giving the team member a structured channel to update his or her manager.
The check-in window
The day and frequency of check-ins are set by the manager for each team member. The check-in can be completed on a time window of 36 hours. It opens at 08.30 on D day and closes at 20.30 on D+1.
This check-in window on Popwork creates a habit and preserves these regular step back moments between managers and team members. Nevertheless, it’s possible to complete a check-in ahead of time or after its due date.
