COVID-19 has made the need for reliable, easily accessible information to help employers, government officials and community organizations keep workers, residents, and members informed more important than ever. Based on the published recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, the well-being experts at Grokker have produced a complimentary COVID-19 Coronavirus Preparedness program. Consisting of three videos that cover topics such as symptoms and precautions, preventing the spread of COVID-19, as well as managing stress and well-being.
Grokker has been a trusted source in advancing the pursuit of physical, emotional and personal wellbeing since its inception eight years ago. Grokker’s individual and employer well-being solutions feature 130+ experts and more than 4,000 on-demand wellbeing video programs. The company’s free COVID-19 Preparedness Program is designed to help people cope better and address the anxiety they may be experiencing during the global health crisis.
Grokker CEO Lorna Borenstein shared, “Consistent with our mission, Grokker has moved quickly to provide free access to our individual and employer solutions. In response to those offerings, we heard from a number of local government officials who want to make sure their citizens are getting dependable info on containment and basic health practices, as well as managing stress. We’ve also heard from employers, community centers, colleges and nonprofits that want help alleviating some of the anxiety we’re all feeling. Our COVID-19 Preparedness Program is free and can be easily accessed and shared with anyone, whether they have a Grokker account or not.”
While many local governments have activation programs in place whereby citizens can receive updates via text, phone or email communications, as COVID-19 continues to proliferate, officials are challenged to provide actionable content that can help residents and their families manage their well-being during this period of uncertainty. Similarly, organizations such as community centers and local non-profit groups that previously provided regular touchpoints are seeking ways to remain in contact with members.
