Here’s a question. How do you continue to motivate, inspire, inform, or even just get your teams together during a national lockdown?
Whilst 2020 has been unusual (to say the least), for KOREC, we were already quite used to remote working & collaboration. Serving two nations, and with staff the width and breadth of the country, regular communication via phone, email, virtual chat or even Whatsapp was already the norm for many.
But for those used to office working or field working, now confined to the kitchen table at home, we realised that it was more important than ever to ensure everyone felt connected & informed.
That’s why we launched our virtual lunch ‘n’ learn series in October. The objective was simple – every 2 weeks, we invite everyone in the organisation to a brief overview of a product, solution or application. The vibe is informal – questions and interruptions are very much welcomed, prizes are awarded, and of course, lunch is munched.
It’s the perfect opportunity for a refresher on a particular product, an introduction to the latest piece of kit on the market, all presented by one of our in-house experts. For our people, it’s a reminder of the sheer variety & versatility of the solutions that KOREC offers, be it land survey, drone, rail, highways, mobile mapping…the list goes on.
It’s an excellent way for many of us to take 30 minutes out of our day, to get together, have a chat, and even learn something new.
So far, we’ve held 3 sessions;
An overview of our in-house, K-Matic software suite, presented by Darrell Theobalds
Introduction to the R12 & R12i GNSS systems & ProPoint, hosted by Leigh Rowell
Laser scanning made simple, with the X7, presented by Melvin Penwill
And we have many more up our sleeves going into 2021.
