Here at MattBatFilms, we’ve been taking a deep look into the Coronavirus, and how it’s impacting industries across the world. Many in Europe and the Americas are just now beginning to experience what people in Asia have been confronting for weeks. We think it’s important to put light on what we’re doing within’ our companies operations to make sure that everyone is safe. As many of you might know, MattBatFilms has a private team working on projects like Staxer & MarekRadio, we are working hard to develop brands to soon change the world & the industry it’s associated with, so it’s very important to take good care of our staff & future users of our brands.
We have been monitoring our entire team, with daily meetings ensuring they are okay & not experiencing any symptoms from the coronavirus. Additionally, it’s important for us to ensure their families are also safe, so we could do what we can to provide assistance to them.
Work At Home:
Luckily our team is built around the work at home model, as we feel it’s economically better for a company like ours & it provides more flexibility to their everyday life, and ultimately less stress is put onto them. From day one it’s been our mission to provide an extremely efficient team management system, which we have in place. This reduces the chance of our team catching the coronavirus, although some of our team are from other parts of the world other than the United States, such as: Brazil, Poland, the United Kingdom, Norway, Sweden & India. We’re happy to have a team in multiple different market areas, to have talent from all across the world. If one of our team members or their families were to catch the coronavirus, we have a support plan in place, such as the following:
- Paid leave for up to 2 months
- Medical costs assistance paid by MattBatFilms
- Free at-home nursing
- Provide food and lodging
We’ll continue to provide help to anyone involved, even if they aren’t apart of our team, as at MattBatFilms everyone is family to us.
We’re allocating $5,000 to support relief efforts, which will go towards organizations working to purchase medical supplies, provide frontline workers with food and lodging, support the construction of temporary hospitals, and help with long-term recovery efforts. And, we are also working on encouraging people to donate their blood as there is an Urgent Need for Blood Due to Coronavirus Outbreak, working with the American Red Cross you can click here to learn more on how to schedule your appointment.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
We continue to make huge progress on all of our brands found here. We’re not slowing down any operations, as everyone in our team currently is healthy & energetic, ready to go! We hope to release Staxer & MarekRadio very soon, we’ll continue to update you with future press releases. Stay safe out there! Update 3/24/2020: Due to the rise in the unexpected severity of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we will be halting any/all operations at MattBatFilms temporarily due to the unfortunate team miscommunication, investment issues, and economic instability the world is experiencing. We feel like it’s better to work when things have gotten better. The entire country is experiencing this, we’re together on this one, we can get through this. Some of our smaller projects might continue to operate as planned, depending on the circumstances.
Update 4/10/2020: Today it’s Matthew’s birthday, our CEO & Founder @ MattBatFilms, and today is an incredible day for our team! As we’re beginning to reopen our operations slowly but surely. Firstly we’ve attached a document, from our brand Staxer, to announce the shift in employees, and the new hires to the team as we continue to grow. In the next weeks, we’ll unveil new projects, progress updates, and much more brand new information. We’re hiring as well currently to get an expanded team to work faster. Unfortunately, we’ve had to move the internal release dates for some of our projects, but those projects haven’t had official release dates to the public yet, but our internal goals have been moved by at least 2-3 months. But, that doesn’t mean we’re slowed down, we’re accelerating the growth & hiring a larger workforce to get our new services out to you very soon! We hope you love what we’ve been working on. We’ve all been working from home, using remote tools to communicate with each other, everything is finally going very smoothly & we’re so excited about what the future holds! We will not let this slow us down.
Update 4/14/2020: We’re introducing a brand new club, where you can find all of the information you need for COVID-19, we’re doing our part during this hard time.
