DAILY COVID SCREENING FOR EMPLOYEES
As part of the new normal, companies are actively looking for ways to screen employees before their shift, especially in the retail and hospitality sectors. With that in mind, retail technology company Multimedia Plus has developed a new Daily Health Check module for one of their existing employee platforms. Employees use their smartphone or a company computer to answer a pre-shift screening questionnaire and are given a green pass to head to their shift or a red pass for additional follow-up. While this test is question-based and can’t provide the certainty of an official COVID test, it can help increase employee awareness of symptoms they should be looking for.

This new platform will give users access to millions of songs and custom options based on personal taste, which is a huge shift from other streaming services which recommend music based on the aggregate of millions of users.
