unfortunately we are currently living in turbulent times. Like us, you will certainly have followed the development of the spread of the coronavirus with concern over the last few weeks and days in particular.
We would like to keep you up to date on what is happening at NETFORMIC in this context, how we have dealt with the topic and are planning to continue.
The last weeks:
For several weeks now, we have been actively advising all employees to work from the home office for prevention, minimizing our travel activities, canceling company meetings and regular disinfection rounds in the offices
The state from now on:
With the continued negative development and the latest official measures, we have now switched all activities completely to home office and will be able to use our proven tools (zoom, VoIP phone, e-mail, internal and external collaboration). JIRA, Confluence) and close the offices until at least the end of March and also refrain from traveling.
The employees who are affected by the closure of kindergartens and schools are given the necessary flexibility wherever possible. We are confident that with a common understanding for one another, all challenges that arise purely organizationally can be solved with good will.
What does it all mean for you?
That’s the positive part. We hope and expect: “Actually nothing!” Fortunately, in terms of tools and processes, we are used to working together in a decentralized team. Accordingly, almost everything remains for us as it actually always has been.
However, if there should be frictions in individual cases, we ask for your forbearance and we would be happy to provide an active hint should something get stuck unnecessarily.
And the following applies to our family heroes:
The new “professional” is children screaming during a video or telephone conference, even if we may not get it right off the bat as perfectly as our new role model:
Technically and organizationally we are well equipped for the current situation and you can count on us as normal. Still, let’s hope that we can return to normal soon.
