deskbird in January 2022: Launch of the Health and Safety Check
Can we really return to the office safely without taking the risk of getting and transmitting COVID-19? This was still a major question for employers and employees at the beginning of 2022.

deskbird in March 2022: Introduction of the Interactive Floor Plan
One of the reasons employees cherish hybrid work more than fully remote is because they want to continue sharing moments with their colleagues in person. But what happens if colleagues cannot find desks next to each other and therefore cannot spend time together or collaborate? To make hybrid work even more enjoyable, avoid frustration, and foster collaboration, our development team created and introduced the interactive floor plan in March 2022. Your employees can see in real time where their teammates are located in the office and instantly book a seat next to them!

deskbird in April 2022: deskbird Summit in Tuscany
As we always say, working environments play a major role in your employees’ productivity (this is another reason why hybrid work is so successful). So we thought, what’s better than spending three days in Italy altogether to conduct our biannual summit? In April 2022, the desk birds all met in Tuscany for a summit surrounded by the beautiful Italian landscape. It has become one of the best memories for the deskbird team who took this opportunity to bond, discuss, share, create and have a lot of fun!

deskbird in September 2022: Summit in Malta
What would be the point of helping companies and employees to enjoy the benefits of hybrid work if we did not take advantage of this ourselves?

Yes, we tend to prefer warm and sunny destinations to the gray Munich weather of our office.
deskbird in October 2022: Launch of the “Productivity Campaign”
