Return to Work Safely with Get Working: Our New App for Office Teams

Introducing Our New Seat Reservation and COVID-19 Symptom Screening Tool

  • By Matthew Ritchie

Over the past few months, we’ve been working with retailers to design products that keep their employees and customers safe during the COVID-19 crisis. 

The response to our COVID Kit has been amazing, and that got us thinking about how we could adapt our COVID-19 self-assessment tool and reservation system to help more teams return to work safely.  

Today, Foko Inc. is pleased to share what we’ve come up with: Get Working, a tool that allows businesses to manage office capacity limits better and ensure a healthy workplace.

“Given the current circumstances, office capacities are much lower than usual, and most companies are looking for an effective way to get their teams back to work while limiting the potential spread of COVID-19,” says Marc Gingras, CEO of Foko Inc. “The more employers can manage who is coming in and when, and screen their team for any possible symptoms, the better equipped they’ll be to provide a safe work environment and limit possible legal risks.”

Here’s How Get Working Works:

  • Employees use their company email address to log in to the app
  • They then select their office location and days they want to come into work
  • 24 hours before their reservation, employees are prompted to fill out a self-assessment
  • If the symptom survey results are negative, they are given a “pass” to report to work



Get Working allows employers to set the capacity of every office location, including how many people each floor of the building can safely accommodate. The admin module gives the option to assign a concierge to manage a specific building or floor, and oversee who is coming in at what time. And the app is customizable to fit evolving regional guidelines and regulations, so no matter what changes between now and the end of the pandemic, your workplace can stay safe.
