Changes in Workplace

Companies are having to work differently during these times, with the health and wellbeing of colleagues and employees a high priority for many. To monitor the health of Oil and Gas workers before they begin their shift offshore, British oil company BP partnered with a software company to create an online hub for workers to input their own temperature readings and symptoms twice a day to make sure they’re fit to work. Now, with the software a success, they have made the code freely available for other companies to build similar systems. Whilst the online hub relies on the continued input of the workers, it is hoped that software like this will not only help reduce the risk of outbreaks of coronavirus but also will be able to identify those displaying symptoms and get them treatment quicker.

Benefit of waiting

And for that reason, we always prefer for the right time to come. While this might seem like a logical argument, it's actually the biggest ally of procrastination. Its a new week - Do not wait to put those dreams to actions, for there is no such thing as the right time, so start where you are, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and you'll find better tools as you go along. Happy New Week! Stay Safe & Healthy!
