LinchPin Develops Covid-19 Collaboration Toolkit and Advisory for South African Organisations

Written by 

The Covid-19 Collaboration Toolkit includes best-practice online conferencing and collaboration methodologies from around the world

  • A solid strategic foundation for free and paid-for collaboration tools designed to take the South African organisation and its employees primarily online
  • One-to-one consultations with C-Suite consultants designed to provide business leaders with advice and strategy in the face of the Covid-19 shutdown

South Africa, March 16 2020: LinchPin, strategic management and advisory firm, has developed a cohesive Covid-19 Collaboration Toolkit designed to help organisations manage remote working and client liaison in the face of the Covid-19 South Africa shut down. The package includes the latest in technology, best practice and methodology designed to help organisations leverage connectivity and online capabilities to manage employees and workloads remotely. In addition, consultants with more than 40 years of industry experience will provide CEOs and business leaders with the strategic insight and advisory they need to ride the wave of disruption that lies ahead.

“The National State of Disaster announcement by President Cyril Ramaphosa on 15 March 2020 highlighted some areas of grave concern for the organisation,” says Calvin Mackay, CEO of LinchPin.
“Remote working will become the norm as taxis, public transport and work environments cater for the growing health concern of the coronavirus.”

While working from home protects individuals and minimises the spread of the virus, it introduces several risks for the organisation. Lack of visibility into employee behaviour and deliverables, reduced client engagement, client concerns around deliverables and efficiency, reduced engagement, and a global slowdown, are among the many concerns that surround the shutdown. Organisations want stability and sustainability in the face of a widespread recession that could potentially have a far-reaching impact.

As yet there is limited understanding as to how deeply the global markets and economic vectors will be influenced by Covid-19 planning and self-isolation strategies. What is known is that many organisations are on the back foot when it comes to collaboration tools and work from home (WFH) methodologies. LinchPin has developed an extensive toolkit designed to leverage the right technologies and tools for long-term collaboration online.

  • A toolkit that includes some of the leading video conferencing and online collaboration tools that will allow for seamless client-to-client liaison and effective employee management during self-isolation and working from home (WFH) enforcement.
  • One-to-one online consultations with business consultants with experience in managing and running remote companies across more than 52 countries worldwide for in-depth disruption advisory and strategic planning.
  • A WFH wellness guide that provides employees with time management, anxiety management and wellness tools while in isolation. This is designed to minimise stress, help employees identify fake news, maximise performance and ease fears during the shutdown period.

The LinchPin Covid-19 Collaboration Toolkit is customised to suit different business sizes and budgets. The goal is to provide organisations with an accessible reference guide that will help them make informed choices and maximise business growth in an extremely complex and volatile environment.
