Fletcher Building

COVID-19 Employee Engagement App Launched in Less Than A Week

Driven by the COVID-19 outbreak in Australasia, Fletcher Building wanted an easy way to maintain employee engagement and staff wellbeing while New Zealand went into lockdown.

The Opportunity

Being one of the largest publicly listed companies in New Zealand, Fletcher Building recognised the importance of effective communication channels during a time of great stress and uncertainty for its staff across both New Zealand and Australia.

The Process

We met with Fletcher Building on March 27 via video call. Showing interest in the newly launched Team Safe App, the Fletcher team was sent the demo app to try it for themselves.

Our crisis management solution provided an immediate answer utilizing Appranet’s team engagement platform. Offering mobile push notifications, daily health check-ins and custom FAQs, Appranet gave Fletchers a great platform that was customised for its specific needs while adapting quickly to government-mandated restrictions.

Following the successful launch in New Zealand, Fletchers decided to replicate the app and use it for its staff across Australia. Today, it has more than 7,000 active users in New Zealand and Australia.

Our people are dispersed throughout the country and different kinds of worksites and workplaces, but largely at home recently, so it’s invaluable being able to connect through such an accessible and flexible tool.
