Free Business Tools And Resources To Grow Your Organization In 2021

Reading Time: 3 minutes

As the effects of COVID-19 continue well into 2021, the world of work hasn’t been quite the same. Organizations have made major adjustments and certain tools are now essential in keeping those business wheels turning. 

To help workplaces weather the ups and downs of the pandemic, the tech industry has rallied behind businesses with a bevy of free products to keep operations afloat. The SafetyCulture Group has been no different. From collaborative tools that free up your time to creative design templates that let your pandemic protocols shine, we’re offering access to free resources that make up the blueprint for a thriving business. 

Tap into free business tools that keep your organization in sync, informed, and focused on the work they do best.

Turn your environment into mouthpiece for safety with professionally designed templates 

The pandemic has shown visual communication to be a powerful tool for encouraging safe behaviors and lifting consumer confidence. A publicly displayed list of daily safety procedures, with completion status shown, is cited to increase trust and confidence in a business.

That being said, information shared needs to be accurate as well as engaging. SafetyCulture worked in partnership with Canva to develop free professionally designed safe environment templates to help businesses communicate effectively. The free library consists of posters and social media templates to help businesses communicate with customers and employees during COVID-19. 

Roll out remote, mobile training for teams 

Learning used to be associated with four walls and a whiteboard. Since the pandemic hit, EdApp’s mobile-focused approach to training exploded in popularity, with more remote and flexible work driving a change in the way teams are trained. To support organizations going through this challenging time, EdApp lifted the restrictions on its free plan, meaning that businesses of any size can train their teams for free. 

Customize your own lessons from scratch, or take a leaf out of EdApp’s book — their book being a library of more than 500 free courses. Looking to learn how best to separate your space while working from home? Or perhaps you’ve been doing a bit of reading and would like to upskill in the cybersecurity space. Either way, you’re bound to find something.

Support employee well-being with a care package of complimentary courses

In partnership with industry experts like Marley Spoon, Improvement Sciences and MCI Solutions, EdApp has launched a collection of courses to help bolster your teams’ well being in the face of COVID-19 restrictions. A care package, if you will. Courses explore vital topics on coping with pandemic stressors —  like creating a lockdown routine, influencing your mood with food and building resilience. These courses can be deployed to your people instantly, for free.

Stay in check with free checklist templates 

Continued vigilance when it comes to pandemic protocols is essential, but one of the biggest challenges for businesses right now is the steep rise in complacency. Fight process fatigue by making ways of working frictionless — starting with free, easy to use checklists.
