During the COVID-19 outbreak, Engaging Networks has taken steps to ensure continued stability and support for our clients worldwide. These steps include planning for the possibility that any of our team members — currently working from home — could be affected by the virus and forced to stop working. Among other steps, we have made arrangements with several accredited partner agencies to step in and provide back-up technical support to our clients if it became necessary. At this time when nonprofits are taking heroic action to help people, animals, the environment and our world, we remain more committed than ever to supporting charitable organizations so they can keep doing their vital work.
What is Crisis Response?
Crisis response in the digital space is the act of assembling a digital campaign and strategy (often quickly) in response to a localized or widespread crisis. It can involve both rapid response and long-term planning as well as communications across a variety of channels.
We’ve been compiling information and ideas to assist you in these situations. You can find these tools here on this page. We’ll continue to add to this collection over time.
