Effy is designed to be a daily workforce management tool, helping managers and human resources build high-performing teams. Since the age of 22, when I first became a team leader, managing people and organizing work processes have become what inspires me the most. This is what prompted the creation of Effy with a amazing team of like-minded people. Our big idea, which we are moving towards, is to put people management on autopilot from regular reviews to daily routine.
