“If prior to the pandemic breakout we were primarily concerned with the wellbeing of our employees, today we take a broader approach, examining our entire surroundings. We care, for instance about the fate of our suppliers. We are engaged members of our community and for that reason, we care about other communities too,” said Rafael Sweary, the founder and president of Israeli website usability company WalkMe Inc. in an interview during Calcalist’s Mind The Tech TLV 2020 conference. “Because of that we didn’t cancel our employees’ meal cards or reduce their travel expenses since we believe it supports the wider economy. My chief concern at the moment is what will happen to the economy in the long term. I’m not worried specifically about the tech sector. Humankind as a whole, as well as us here in Israel, have overcome far worse things in the past, so I am optimistic we will overcome the Covid-19 crisis too,” Sweary said. WalkMe develops platforms that aid companies in carrying out digital transformations, enabling them to maximize their technological systems both from the user side, with guidelines and training, and on the analytics side, providing management with insights on what works and what doesn’t, to assist in their rapid transitions to digital platforms.
