During this difficult time, more and more employees are being forced to work from home. On top of providing resources to these staff members to continue their daily activities, companies are becoming increasingly reliant on communications.
Since the Coronavirus Outbreak, we have seen a surge in push notifications and emails across the WhosOffice platform.
At present emails are up to a record high level to approx. 6.6m+ for March (which equates to 80m+ for 2020), notifications are upwards of 100k+ for March 2020 (which equates to 1m+ for 2020).
You may well be using video software such as Zoom to conduct regular conference meetings with your staff, here at WhosOffice we are doing the same on a regular basis. You may also be using chat software such as WhatsApp or Slack to keep everybody informed of movements around the business and conducting key decisions with your team members.

There are 3 notification settings on leave, with each providing notification settings to keep staff and line managers informed.
