New online platform HomeWerk helps strengthen bond between colleagues working from home

A new online platform can help strengthen the bond between colleagues working from home.

With the coronavirus pandemic seeing more people isolated from their workmates as they set up office at home, HomeWerk has been set up to bring them together with collaborative activities, talking points and competition.

The web app also boasts integrated video and text chat, as well as automated calendar invites, email reminders and easy problem solving via live chat.

Users can earn points, badges and streaks for different actions taken within the platform and there are weekly, monthly and all-time leaderboards to see who is coming out on top.

Teams are given a varied suite of digital activities, covering a wide range of themes and interests to ensure no one is left out, and HomeWerk are also partnering with third parties to provide premium experiences – which will also lead to more points for the leaderboard.

Each user has their own section where they can track their own progress – as well as that of their colleagues, and they’ll also undertake a ‘Who Said That?’ quiz, with their answers displayed to give a fresh talking point for anyone who wants to connect.

As an added bonus, HomeWerk will also record birthdays, work anniversaries and other milestones, so members can leave messages for their colleagues and the platform will collate the content into a premium, shareable, moment.

For more information about the platform – which is already used by the likes of Facebook, O2, Sony Music and John Lewis - and a free four-week trial of HomeWerk, visit
