Google on Wednesday announced a new tool “Work Insights” that entitles admins with more visibility and monitoring control into the ways that G-Suite is deployed and utilised in their organisations.

“Work Insights” comes with “adoption charts” where admins would be able to analyse trends, track deployment progress over time, monitor apps that are most adopted by teams and identify which ones may need additional training on applications.

“With ‘Work Insights,’ admins can quickly surface organisational insights about G-Suite deployments at the team level — aggregated at 10 people or more — and understand adoption patterns for G-Suite apps,” Reena Nadkarni, Group Product Manager, G-Suite, Google wrote in a blog post.

The new tool is built specifically to help businesses measure and understand the impact of internal digital transformation and also for when organisations transition from legacy tools to G-Suite apps.

“You can also use ‘Work Insights’ to learn how your teams are collaborating across your organisation — working together in meetings or co-creating documents. This insight can help executives identify opportunities to strengthen collaboration and reduce siloes,” Nadkarni added.

The search engine giant also announced the general availability of the “Investigation” tool in its “G-Suite Security Centre” to help organisations simplify their security management.

After facing intense protests over sexual misconduct and discrimination at workplace, Google has decided to end the forced arbitration policy for its employees.

According to a report in Axios on Thursday, the new policy will go into effect from March 21 for Google employees globally.

The decision will not open the door to bringing lawsuits over previously-settled claims, said Google.

“Employees with disputes currently in arbitration who are still employed by the company as of March 21 will be able to choose to sue instead,” it added.

Google employees the world over have called for the practice to end in other cases of harassment and discrimination.

“Google appears to be meeting that demand for employees — but the change will not apply in the same blanket way to the many contractors, vendors and temporary employees it uses,” said the report.

Forced arbitration agreements require employees to waive their rights to make a legal claim in court and instead go through a private system, said TechCrunch.

Google also said it would remove mandatory arbitration from legal agreements it reaches directly with its contract and temporary workforce.
