Maintaining lines of communication with your team is important now more than ever. We in Novare use Workplace from Facebook to inform our team about government mandates, check on their safety, continue to collaborate on projects, and organize fun, online activities to keep everyone engaged.
Workplace from Facebook is a dedicated and secure working space for organizations to connect, communicate, and collaborate. Here are some ways to use Workplace to respond to the COVID-19 crisis:
Keep the team safe and informed
Stay up to date on the situation by monitoring authorized sources like WHO and your local government health department. Share official info on the Workplace News Feed. Help the team get clarity on how new announcements will directly affect their work and personal lives.
Delta Airlines used Workplace’s Safety Check feature during hurricane season in the US last year, allowing impacted staff members to mark themselves ‘safe’. Efforts were then focused on contacting team members who may need help.
Hold events from the safety of your homes
Staff meetings have been postponed as a result of the outbreak. In Workplace, you can still hold a staff meeting through a Live session in a secure platform. This will provide your team much needed assurances and support. Australia-based Taronga Zoo and Ambulance Victoria recently used Workplace to share live updates with their entire workforce during the widespread bushfire crisis.
Respond quickly to queries
Your team members have a lot of questions going through their minds at the moment. Publish responses to FAQs. It will help ease anxieties and keep focus on staying safe and productive.
