Why Work?

Organisations of all types and sizes have been forced to adapt during the crisis, largely by embracing remote work through technology and new processes. This is considerably easier for some than others, however.

It’s possible that many of the temporary changes during this period will become the new normal and remain permanently as their benefits are appreciated. How can we help this adaption for companies of varying types through the crisis and beyond?

Hack for Big Choices

The whole world is sitting at home. On the one hand, it is an opportunity to have a well-earned rest and spend valuable time with your family. On the other hand, this situation might complicate quickly as quarantine could easily last for longer than a few months. What should these people do then?\ \ “ChangeMakers’ON” invites you to accept the challenge and solve the problem of unemployment in Lithuania. Spending more time at home can bring new opportunities and ideas on how one can earn very much needed internet-enabled income. This is especially important for those, who lost their jobs and are not just on temporary remote work or holidays. Do you have any ideas how they can survive? How everybody can enable the virtual world not only for calls with friends but also to create a new business and a new source of income? These solutions are now inevitable in order to prevent or contain the spread of COVID-19. The teams with the most feasible ideas will have the opportunity to take advantage of the \ “ChangeMakers‘ON“ accelerator: to have individual consultations and get funding to buy needed equipment for a new workplace.
