The coronavirus outbreak has definitely changed our lives - almost every company in the world has shifted to working from home. Apart from that, all the events organized by many companies are being cancelled or postponed, and we are all called to face new challenges.
All companies need to be able to get in touch with all their employees virtually. As a response, LinkedIn is trying to keep up with the recent changes by taking steps towards helping its users. Apart from sharing content related to WFH (Working from home) daily, they’re also trying to help companies all around the world to communicate effectively with their employees while they’re working remotely.
In addition, there’s a new element called Trending News to let the world know about expert updates regarding corona virus and its implications to our working lives, from the WHO (World Health Organization) and other reliable sources.
Info: This is available in 54 countries and 9 languages.
The hashtags #WFH and #RemoteWork are trending these days on LinkedIn. A new format is also launched for LinkedIn updates regarding coronavirus in order to highlight the information being shared.
LinkedIn live has been in use by many companies including the WHO. But the best part of all those updates launched by LinkedIn will probably be the following:
"In the coming days, we will make 16 LinkedIn Learning courses available for free including tips on how to: stay productive, build relationships when you’re not face-to-face, use virtual meeting tools (Microsoft Teams, Skype, BlueJeans, Cisco Webex and Zoom), and balance family and work dynamics in a healthy way."
LinkedIn’s initiative is a great addition to our everyday lives since social distancing will affect all of us. This can have implications in the communication between employees. It’s great that these online courses are offered by LinkedIn as an additional tool for all of us.
