When we talk about workplace technology, it’s so easy to get bogged down with all of the things we work on. But work is more than the sum of all the documents, tickets, pull requests, presentations, CRM entries, chat messages, and other items we interact with daily. But work is a team sport. Focusing solely on what we do misses the important information within a business about who we work with, and how we work together.
At Glean, we have learned this firsthand, and have invested a great deal in ensuring that users get the best, fastest answers to their people queries. On average, searches for people make up 10 percent of our total search volume. Employees want to understand who they’re working with, and the work that they do together. That’s why we created people profiles in Glean: to help people connect with one another at work, and collaborate better with one another. Now, those profiles are getting a series of improvements to make them more powerful and personal.
Because Glean understands the work that everyone does across an organization, the new and improved profiles feature four widgets that help teammates collaborate.
Like everywhere else in Glean, users will only see items in these widgets if they have permission. That way, private files remain private, without impeding collaboration. We also know that each employee has their own privacy needs, and every organization has its own unique culture, which is why each user can choose whether to enable or disable the widgets on their profile.
Glean is here to make work more personal, and personable. Our new people profiles will roll out to all customers today. These new profiles are just the beginning of a host of updates coming soon that will enable closer team collaboration and inspire company camaraderie.

Every day, Glean users make thousands of people-seeking queries within their companies. Here’s how Glean quickly and intelligently surfaces the right results.
The workplace has changed. Employees are working from more places, using more SaaS tools, and expecting more from their workplace experience. A survey of 1,043 knowledge workers conducted by The Harris Poll found that SaaS sprawl—and its drag on employee productivity and experience—is real.
As more teams started using Collections, we realized how important it was to help people figure out which documents inside a given Collection were most relevant. You can now create Subcollections, which allow you to organize a group of documents and links into hierarchies and nest them within a Collection. You can also use Headers to create sections within Collections.
Inline styles didn’t scale with Glean's growth, so we chose a new solution that optimized performance and developer experience. But it didn’t come without a learning curve.
