A Very Atlassian Journey Through SOX Compliance

In 2014, Atlassian's Finance team was suffering from stale finance documentation, disjointed remediation efforts, and an overall lack of accountability. That's when Rich Woodson joined as a compliance manager and began to create a SOX compliance program. The first iteration used Microsoft Office and resulted in out of date information, which lead to control failures. Plus, it didn't reflect how Atlassian had evolved. They needed to find a better tool that would improve accountability and reflect the dynamic nature of the business.

Before long, the team realized the tool they needed had been right under their noses all along: Jira! This is the story of what they built and how they built it.

HR On-Boarding Made Easy: How Fair Manages Hypergrowth with Jira

Not too long ago, Fair was conducting on-boarding using email, chat messages, in person meetings and spreadsheets. The process was disjointed and disorganized, which was made harder by the fact that the number of new hires had tripled in size in just 9 months. Using a Jira Software Kanban board and Confluence in tandem, an intricate system has been created to manage 13 types of new hires and 55 checklist items needed to complete an individual's HR on-boarding. In this talk, you'll get a step by step overview of Fair's on-boarding process using Jira and Confluence. Attendees will leave with an actionable use case for their HR team.

Building a Culture of Trust and Transparency Through Confluence

The natural inclination for most global public companies is to hide things, yet transparency has always been core to HubSpot’s culture. But, a culture of transparency doesn't just happen -- you have to build it. One of the primary ways HubSpot has built a transparent culture is through "the wiki," powered by Confluence. At HubSpot, all 2,500 employees are encouraged to think like stakeholders or CEOs. Everyone has access to the wiki where everything is shared - from financials to strategy - with everyone in the organization. Why? Because sharing builds transparency, trust and alignment. The "wiki" removes the incentive for teams and leaders to solve for themselves over the organization, and instead encourages conversations, collaboration, and innovation for a common mission.
In this talk, Katie Burke, HubSpot's Chief People Officer, will share the story of how Confluence became a pillar of HubSpot's award-winning culture, as well as highlight specific use cases you'll be able to implement at your own company.
