Corona emergency aid: connect for communication in the home office



Is a team still a team if all employees are in different places, such as the home office? Yes! A strong team works together efficiently and collaboratively even in times of crisis, if the necessary tools are available and the flow of information is always guaranteed. Especially in the current Covid-19 situation it is essential that employees are directly informed about important news and can exchange information. This is exactly where connect comes in and offers you and your employees or colleagues an easy-to-use platform for information exchange and cross-location collaboration.

Challenge Corona Crisis

Every fourth company in Germany offered the home office option even before the crisis. Now, wherever possible, almost all employees are sent to a home office due to the Corona pandemic. One might think that this is a great challenge, but thanks to modern IT solutions, the processes for remote work are already established. Thanks to connect, internal communication can also get off to a quick start at companies that are now using these solutions for the first time.

connect Feature: News

In the news section all employees have access to all internal news.

This ensures that every colleague is informed in real time. No matter whether emergency plans, home office regulations or other acute operational measures are concerned, they are immediately and transparently visible to all employees. Even a video for the correct wearing of a mask can be found here.

connect Feature: FAQ

  • In the FAQ area all important regulations on the subject of home office are clearly laid out
  • Here you will also find instructions on how to install videoconferencing software or how to forward the phone
  • Access to the company server via VPN is documented in the FAQ
  • Of course there is also a short "How-To" on the use of connect and netiquette in the home office

connect Feature: Chat

The connect chat is used for the exchange between employees. Here, arising questions can be discussed briefly and concisely 1:1. Faster than any e-mail traffic.

A channel can be created for individual project teams, working groups or departments. In this way, the team feeling can be strengthened, especially in times of social distance, in which, for example, "after-work" groups keep themselves up to date.

Of course, the connect Chat can also be operated on the smartphone and fed with all media formats, just as you know it from WhatsApp.
