The COVID-19 event taking place is impacting the country on an individual, business and community level. The service industry, including retail, manufacturing, healthcare and staffing have been particularly hard hit by the circulating health concerns. It is essential for these businesses to maintain a reliable communication stream throughout the period of this crisis. Rodio’s frontline communication tools provide an ideal resource for keeping organizations informed at this critical time.

Communication Breakdown

Organization crisis occurs when uncontrollable environmental factors override the workforce with uncertainty and fear. Communication is often the first element to breakdown during a crisis. Misinformation can spread rapidly and field teams may turn to informal platforms to search for answers . Undoubtedly, your front-line teams will need direction from you during COVID-19. It will be critical that you remain in control of that communication, and proactively anticipate and respond to your workforce’s needs. 

Conditions are changing quickly and your communication response to this crisis should be just as fast. Frontline employees need to remain updated on the steps your organization is taking to protect your people, assets and brand. A crisis can only be managed by focusing on what can be controlled; Rodio allows you to control top-down, targeted communication.
