Now is the time for lateral thinking to avail creative collaborations mitigating the consequences of COVID-19, both, in the here-in-now, and planning for the post COVID-19 landscape.
In the panic wave of how to sustain economics in a health crisis, many have switched over to work-from-home and flexible dynamics, and some have engineered thoughtful collaborations to better knowledge share.
It is imperative that new business streams emerge out of the technological wilderness to support the changing health, social and economic dynamics of humanity.
“For those that can work at home, they must!
We need to pivot on the opportunity to create and structure new pathways of sustainable collaborations in order to orientate ourselves.”
Some, like Beam Australia, led by Stephanie Reuss and Victoria Stuart, are skilled, tooled and inspired to educate office folk how to effectively transition into work-from-home scenarios.
Stepping into this pulse, Safetrac, spearheaded by CEO, Deborah Coram, partnered with Beam to rapidly deliver their innovative HR intel to the market via their award-winning and engaging compliance platform.
Experts and innovators in the field, Beam assist in placing high-performing professionals at all levels for part-time and flexible engagements and understand how to create dynamic, communicative and functional autonomous teams.
As the pandemic began to instate itself, Deb entered into a video call with Stephanie and Victoria to strategise regarding their female-led enterprise during COVID-19. Intuitively, the idea to collaborate sparked, the meeting of their minds and business objectives aligned as to how they can share their knowledge and capabilities in hybrid to help others.
Together, what has rapidly materialised is a co-authored collaboration, Safetrac and Beam have launched a suite of online learning tools to work with small and large entities capable of working from home but overwhelmed with training and sharing knowledge for their staff at management and employee levels at these critical junctures.
“We need to collaborate, communicate and coordinate. Australia has a sizeable workforce able to manoeuvre from home, where integrity and good governance are required more than ever before.”
By working smart and keeping our systems adapting, we all play a pivotal role in re-directing our focus to remain as diligent and participatory civilians in human society.
In these rapidly changing circumstances, we need to flexibly collaborate to keep the fabric of society weaving to support our strained health, food, transportation, manufacturing, basic services and education systems. But we also need to keep aware of the changed circumstances and what that means in terms of culture, privacy and security when shifting the workplace from offices to individual homes.
Abominable dissemination of information framed as anxiety-as-clickbait and targeted to ignite fear, coupled with direly toxic hackers and scammers, create a hysterical and destructive face to our first global health crisis connected online. Humans require clarity and compassionate, and purposeful endeavours hallmarked with gratitude. Helping your teams remain calm of mind, body and spirit, and consciously creating, is the heroines’ journey.
“So while we offer tools to help business, we also want the idea firmly out there that whatever your knowledge, your experience, or your ideas, how can it help others right now? You have within your business a means to adapt. There are positives to focus, on, and doing just that eases fear by crafting a sense of purpose, to create new pathways for our divergent workflows.”
The message from the Beam and Safetrac team is this: We are in new times. New offerings are required. It is not, every man for himself, it is every human is in this together. Our talented workforce must be supported to work from home to drive solutions to our expansive and complex issues, and we need to do it with integrity.
