While many of us are working from home these days innovation is by no means is on hiatus during the Covid-19 pandemic. Scientists, engineers, computer programmers, and countless others have been innovative not only to stop the spread of Covid-19 but also to make our lives easier as we face the obstacles of life during a pandemic.
From making working from home and distance learning easier, to improved ways of ordering groceries and products to combat the virus there has been a multitude of inventions and patents granted for those inventions.
As always those who are making important and oftentimes lifesaving innovations deserve to be recognized for their accomplishments. However, in a time of social distancing, limited gatherings, and working from home, distributing awards can have challenges.
Stellar Kent Corporation can help to navigate your patent award program during the pandemic. Drop shipping to inventors’ homes while everyone is working from home can ensure that everyone receives their award in a timely fashion and knows their important accomplishments are appreciated and acknowledged.
But what else can you do? It is disappointing when events we look forward to being canceled. In a normal time, patent awards are passed out during events. Sometimes it is a small gathering in the office. Sometimes it is a big gathering such as a banquet. Currently, this is not an option.
Consider having a virtual gathering after the awards are shipped. There is no reason the accomplishments of this year should not be celebrated just as much if not more than years past. A virtual banquet could be a great opportunity for your team to reconnect and build some team spirit as we try to make the most of the situation.
At the end of the day, we have given up many things during the pandemic and your patent award program does not have to be one of them.
