Raj is the founder of a startup that specializes in providing blogging services. He works with colleagues who are almost like his friends. They have no relationship of super-ordination or sub-ordination; they work in a flat hierarchy. They value creative problem solving and open communication. This is why when Raj found it difficult to handle teamwork with the resources at his disposal, he was ready to consult his human resources head, Siddharth and follow his recommendations.
Siddharth recommended the following apps to make Raj’s task smoother.
