In light of the devastating Covid-19 pandemic, Melbourne-based visual communication developers and tech start-up Piqify, have developed a unique app – PiqMeUp – which enables front line workers and businesses to stay emotionally connected with their teams, create an inclusive, supportive environment and keep an ongoing, regular monitor on the mental health and well-being of everyone across their workforce.
Co-Founders of Piqify and creators of PiqMeUp, Luke Feldman and Shourov Bhattacharya are offering the PiqMeUp app free of charge to any business that wants to use the app to stay connected with their teams during this global period of lockdown.
“During this period of isolation that we are all experiencing as a global community, it’s incredibly important to maintain emotional connections with colleagues and employees to ensure that no-one feels alone, which is why we have created and want to share PiqMeUp,” said Luke Feldman.
“We really hope that PiqMeUp will also be used by hospitals, the police force and others working in the ‘front line’ to help them stay emotionally connected and make important, regular ‘check ins’ to monitor the mental health and wellbeing of their teams,” he added.
By using a universal language of symbols and uniquely designed emoticons, PiqMeUp makes it simple for people to give a quick, easy to understand ‘check in’ as to how they are feeling and their mental state.
“The PiqMeUp app utilises Piqify’s unique visual language to give businesses a platform that makes it easy for them to extend an ’emotional check-in’ across their teams daily, or as often as they feel is needed, to make sure that their teams feel supported and connected at this time,”
