The situation with Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) which can lead to the illness Covid-19 is causing disruption for millions of people and for businesses around the globe. Socially, economically and politically, the impacts are large and still unfolding. What we learned from the crash of 2008, albeit stemming from different causes, is that the organisations that survived the crisis and went on to thrive afterwards, outperforming the market, were those who made sensible decisions around strategy, short-term tactics and cost control while investing in the technology to enable new and streamlined ways of working: https://hbr.org/2019/05/how-to-survive-a-recession-and-thrive-afterward (4 articles free to view per month).

Keystone has invested in several ways to support our clients during these challenging times, in which remote and home working are becoming the new "normal" and likely to remain so for 6-18 months.

Successful Remote Working webinar (2 hours) - an interactive webinar aimed at either employees or at people managers. Many of our clients are moving, or have already moved, to remote working for the next few months as a minimum. Several organisations have asked us to deliver webinars for their people who are affected by this change to equip them with the resilience, skills and behaviours to maintain productivity, keep up morale and continue to build effective client and supplier relationships while navigating a very different working environment and personal pressures. As a fully remote team for the last 15 years, Keystone has a wealth of experience in this area and our success has been built on leveraging the positives of a remote workforce. Please see the overview for this webinar here for people managers and here for employees, and get in touch if you would like to talk it through or book a session.

LearnExpress - Keystone's own e-learning platform with 7 courses uploaded and ready for your people to use. The courses are highly interactive, featuring acted scenes, quizzes and professional voicemovers, and have acompanying resources and materials. They can be accessed on computers, laptops, tablets and mobile phones. To provide a partnership approach to organisations wanting to weather this crisis and enable their people to continue upskilling rather than pausing their development for an indefinite amount of time, we have suspended our usual pricing and instead are offering all 7 courses for one year at the low price of £4000 for all your employees. (If you are a small business and would like to discuss bespoke pricing for a limited number of people, please get in touch and we'll be happy to help.) Please take a look at LearnExpress here (platform) and here (overview) and then get in touch with us for a demo log-in so you can explore the courses before reaching a decision: https://www.learnexpress.com/.

Resilience and Wellbeing webinar (3 hours) - focused on giving participants the tools and techniques they need to respond to this time of crisis through self-awareness, self-care and methods of showing socially responsible care for others. Please see the overview for this webinar here and get in touch if you would like to talk it through or book a session.

Safety - Making Safety Personal webinars. We're delighted to have fast-tracked the development of our renowned and impactful safety training into a webinar-based format. Find out more in our overview here about the three levels of training available - One Team, Leading and Sustain - with the option of including live actor-facilitator material for immersive mindset and behavioural change, or get in touch to have a chat with us.

Your normal training, done differently - the vast majority of our behavioural safety, leadership, management, interpersonal skills and business skills training can be delivered through webinars, e-learning, online forums, digital action learning groups and self-directed activity based learning from home or work. We are working with a number of clients to achieve this shift in methodology. If your organisational culture has traditionally focused on face-to-face workshops, we recognise that this shift is a cultural change and that our support will be needed to position it with employees and get their engagement, as well as to review processes and systems to support the change. Our team and our expert consultants are ready to assist with this - please get in touch to have a chat with us.

We'd be delighted to support you and your people to maintain your business and get through this situation in the best shape possible. Please do get in touch if a conversation would be helpful. We look forward to talking with you.
