An app that connects key workers has been given a £ 8.2 million funding boost to help get Covid-19 updates to Frontline Satff.
Blink, which has already been used by the Dominos pizza restaurant and the Stagecoach transport company, is destined to continue its diffusion through the NHS trust funds and the prison service.
Workers using the app will receive important news about Covid-19.
The owners say it has been used 25 million times since the start of the blockade and could now continue to help reduce infection rates by reducing paper usage.
Employees can access directories, fill out digital forms for leave, absences and accidents, access digital payroll and real-time feedback to managers on issues and concerns that concern them.
Sean Nolan, Blink CEO, said: “The Covid-19 crisis has highlighted the key role that key workers in our society play in the front line.
“The entire deskless workforce has been hungry for investment. Now more than ever they need to be equipped with better tools so that they can perform their essential roles effectively.
“Every worker needs immediate access to the latest safety information, a voice to respond to management and the ability to support their colleagues on the front line.”
The Blink app allows companies to send information to employees’ personal phones, such as wellness and compliance messages, including Covid-19 updates.
