COVID-19 and business: How Pathways can help ease the transition to remote work

The original press release can be read here via EIN Presswire.

With the outbreak of COVID-19, many organizations have experienced a rapid shift to move their employees to work from home. In a few short weeks, the Pathways team worked tirelessly to deliver multiple projects in order to ease the burden our clients are experiencing with this paradigm shift.

The Pathways team noticed that many of our clients are beginning to leverage their investments in ServiceNow to implement or enhance their processes to address the challenges they're facing with a mass migration of employees working remotely.

We're approaching each of these projects with the same level of quality and quick implementation methodology that will ensure these changes will not only work, but will also be aligned with best practices so that upgrades and future development efforts will not be hindered in any way.

In addition, ServiceNow has already rolled out multiple free applications to help organizations manage this new reality. The apps include Emergency Outreach (to help companies connect with employees to assess the impact during a crisis), Emergency Self Report (which helps an employee notify their employer that they are self‑quarantined and when the employee will return to work), and Emergency Exposure Management (alerts the company if an employee is diagnosed with an illness and helps the employer identify other people who might have been exposed based on the employee’s meetings history and job location).
