On March 16th, 2020, the Governor of California gave the order for businesses to close and for all Californian’s to shelter in place. Only essential businesses would be allowed to remain open. Blackbird Associates is a key, essential business keeping hospital infrastructure in place to remain up to date and functioning. Replacing and updating the day to day functionality of hospitals is what Blackbird Associates does best, and our clients needed us. The advancements in technology that Blackbird Associates had been putting into place prior to the introduction of Covid-19 had enabled us to be able to quickly mobilize work at home protocols and remain open while following the California guidelines. Our clients have been a phone call or an online meeting away from continuing on with vital projects.
Although our office is closed to the public, our fearless leader remains on sight to hold down the fort, and make sure that all of the day to day functions on the inside remained running smoothly. Work stations were drained of their electronics and moved to new home offices. Our conference room was updated with newer state of the art technology to allow for larger scale online meetings. But the connections and comradery of the Blackbird Associates team remained bonded yet different with On-line Check-in meetings, on-line staff meetings, and virtual happy hour.
Covid-19 has made a huge impact on the entire world, and things will forever be changed. Our team has remained strong and flexible to adapt to the newly changing world and will continue on with open arms… but six feet away.
