CEO’s Blog – Is your workforce going ‘contactless’? BigChange is here to help
24th March 2020 - Businesses across the globe are battling against the uncertainty created by COVID-19.
Whether your sales have slowed, supply chains disrupted, or you are overloaded with orders, we are all in uncharted territory.
The reality for most of us is that we have to find ways to keep trading while minimising contact with other people. We also have to monitor the health – both physical and mental – of our employees, customers and partners at this difficult time.
The good news is that BigChange’s platform can help your business to get through this outbreak – and even thrive. Our software was built to offer true resilience and future-proofing to businesses of all sizes.
How BigChange can help you today
BigChange’s software allows all your team members to work remotely, meeting the new self-isolation guidelines, and ensuring that tasks are easily and clearly allocated.
When work is completed, jobs are updated with all the required paperwork, images, and sign off from senior personnel. Our remote activity audits also offer peace of mind.
BigChange allows its customers to ensure employees are working safely through home office risk assessments, which determine whether desk setups are likely to cause RSI or back problems. It can even ensure that WiFi is securely set up to minimise the threat of cyber crime.
It will also communicate up-to-date official COVID-19 guidance as the situation evolves.
For some companies, face-to-face interaction is still vital. BigChange offers a triage risk assessment facility to determine which tasks must still be carried out in-person, and how to allocate resources safely.
Each job that is loaded onto the BigChange platform will have a dedicated risk assessment, ensuring the welfare of your teams and customers is paramount.
These assessments will:
- Determine the health status of employees
- Check that people that your staff are meeting have no COVID-19 symptoms and have not been exposed to the virus
- Ensure a safe working environment
- Remind employees of safe travel guidance during this time
- Remind employees of the need to maintain a distance of at least two metres from others
- Ensure that employees take hand-washing breaks and have access to those facilities without putting themselves at additional risk
