Staying productive during lock-down

How you can smash the top three home-working challenges that face every business during the coronavirus outbreak
Home working during lock-down

You’re not alone

The global outbreak of Coronavirus has seen millions of people forced to work from home for the first time.

In situations like this, safeguarding employee welfare, whilst maintaining a productive and healthy workforce is a top priority for every organisation, regardless of size.

It’s almost ironic then, that after helping some of the UK’s biggest employers mobilise their staff with field-working apps, we at Nutshell HQ have had to overcome a few hurdles ourselves, whilst adapting to remote working life.

This is the story of how we crushed the lockdown, and how we’re helping businesses like yours all over the UK to do the same.

Fatigue management

Avoid overworking and fatigue

It’s difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance when you’re trying to do everything in the same physical space. It’s just too easy to burn-out.

We created our Fatigue Tracker app to help our employees track time against goals, bring discipline to their working day and even set-up automated reminders to prompt them to take breaks!

Isolation and uncertainty

Relieve isolation and uncertainty

In quarantine, feelings of anxiety can be quite overwhelming. Regular breaks and activities are imperative to maintaining a healthy state of mind.

We created our Wellbeing Journal app to help our team monitor their feelings about work, family and life in general, with access to a wealth of resources to help them beat stress and stay positive.

Poor ergonomics

Improve working environments

Every employee should have a safe, comfortable environment in which to work, but this can be difficult when you’re camped-out in the spare room!

We created our Workspace Assessor app to help leaders evaluate their team’s makeshift working environments, carry out risk assessments and provide guidance on good posture and physical wellbeing.

Introducing the Mobile Lockdown Toolkit

Our Mobile Lockdown Toolkit is a suite of five easy-to-use Smartphone apps for iOS and Android, designed to help you overcome some of the most common  challenges that remote working brings – all used and tested by our own staff.


We believe everyone should be doing their bit to help in the fight against Coronavirus, which is why we’re making our Mobile Lockdown Toolkit available to the first 50 customers at a whopping 80% discount.


That’s five mobile apps for the price of one.
