What we’re doing to help

Today, multiple non-profit organisations, hospitals and universities are using Blocworx to accelerate their efforts to create a positive impact on the world. We are continuously inspired by the incredible ways Blocworx has helped these organisations help others.

In light of the ongoing outbreak, we aim to help as many businesses as we can to accomplish more. We believe in the power of our platform to help any business work better, particularly in a remote environment and we want to do our part to support the efforts combating COVID-19.With that goal, we are offering free use of our platform to any non-profit organisations working to fight the coronavirus outbreak. We will also provide you with the support you need to get the platform up and running quickly and efficiently. We want to support front line staff with our software that can manage and track patient, staff and operations information. Please reach out to us if your non-profit organisation is interested in using Blocworx for this purpose.

Guidance on remote work, with more to come

Helping businesses with communication and collaboration challenges they face on a daily basis is an essential part of our platform. Many businesses have chosen to use our platform to improve their daily workflow, but working remotely takes time to redefine this. We know that for so many of you, the shift to work remotely was unexpected. To help ease this transition, we’ve complied a brief list of positive remote working habits to get started with.

Location, location, location 

Try find yourself a dedicated and comfortable spot to work that you can associate with your job and leave when you’re off the clock. That means get off the couch and definitely off the bed.

Have a plan

When working from home, you should also introduce a more structured daily plan. Usually our time and the structure of our day is influenced by other people. Your’re going to notice your day will be lacking the normal structure that you usually have. Time spent in self-isolation is better structured.

Over communicate 

Think beyond email and use other digital tools that can better replicate the in-person office experience and provide for clear communication. Daily meetings can be held using video conferencing services like Zoom or Skype. This can provide you the structure to ensure accurate feedback on projects and ensure tasks are completed efficiently.

Stay healthy

During times like these, we’re all glued to the news. We’re continuing to monitor the situation with updates from the World Health Organisation, among other sources and guidelines. We are also committed to reassessing the situation and adjusting our plans accordingly. Don’t forget to stay active and healthy in this difficulty period.

Thank you for your trust in us. Let’s all stay happy, healthy and keep washing our hands!
