During this difficult time, it’s only natural for your employees to be depending on you for COVID-19 updates and best practices in response. This is why here at HiBob, we want you to know that you can count on us, as well. Providing business continuity is a top priority not just to us, but to all involved in the new world of work. Our commitment to the safety and wellbeing of our global community of users, clients, and employees goes without question, and we want to thank you for your continued trust in us. 

We have taken increased measures to protect the health of our people while continuing to provide ongoing customer support and maintaining business continuity. The following precautions are being taken at HiBob:

All travel has been canceled or closely monitored 

All business travel has been 100% canceled. There will be no HiBob-sponsored or centric trips until otherwise announced. Furthermore, we have strongly advised our employees to avoid personal travels and to keep HR updated if they should be traveling on personal time for any reason and to any destination. All employees that have traveled domestically or abroad are required to work from home for a minimum of 14 days and adhere to social isolation guidelines. 

All HiBob offices are working remotely on a global scale

All HiBob offices have closed their doors and sent their people to work from home. Video interviews have replaced on-site interviews for new hires, and all internal communication occurs digitally. All planned meet-ups, events and conferences have been canceled or postponed, as well. 

All HiBob communication is constant and clear 

We have shared best practice health tips with our entire company and continue to keep them updated on a daily basis. We encourage open communication and complete transparency using Bob, sharing updates via our platform’s Shoutouts and Kudos features. To keep the culture and collaboration alive while working from home, we advise all team leaders to hold daily standups and team meetings. We also encourage video coffee breaks between coworkers to catch up and stay connected to avoid feeling isolated or lonely during this time.

As a cloud-based SaaS company with a solid infrastructure, we are fully capable of managing business continuity challenges. We expect our services to continue and thrive without disruption, and we believe in our ability to keep the platform running and expanding as usual, with no interruption. 

We have increased channels of internal communication, and as always, prioritize communication with you, our customers, so you can remain focused on your business challenges and goals. We will remain up to date on any and all released information from the World Health Organization and are committed to reassessing the situation and adjusting our plans accordingly. 

Our CEO, Ronni Zehavi, sends a warm message to our employees and customers; “I hope this message finds you, your families, and coworkers safe and in good health. From a continuity standpoint, I want to assure you we are taking all necessary precautions to protect our people and their families. While there is uncertainty about the duration and impact of this situation, you have my full commitment that the HiBob team is, and will continue, to do everything in our power to help you be the strongest you can be to lead your employees and business through this otherwise unchartered territory… 

…We’re actively listening to you and doing everything possible to offer assistance and support in regards to any questions and challenges you face in a new mode of operation, whether that may be adapting remote work or how to leverage Bob for greater internal impact during this period. I want to thank you for allowing us to serve you and wish strength to all, as well as good health in the weeks ahead.” 

Once again, thank you for your continued trust in us. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to our live chat support or to your dedicated Account Manager.
