"We feel you! The pandemic has affected many lives and businesses, ours included. However, we must stay resilient, vigilant, and -more importantly- supportive of each other"- Makman's team.

May 1st, 2020 | Announcement

We hope that you’re doing well. In response to the current pandemic, Makman has committed to following all of the precautionary measures issued by the authorities, which we hope will limit the spread of the pandemic. This includes the temporary closure of our headquarters, and the postponement of all scheduled onsite activities until further notice.

As for our ongoing consulting projects, plans have been made to communicate and execute with our customers remotely, whenever possible, and all of our consultants have been notified to work from home, when possible.

We are committed to alleviating the crisis on our valued customers and helping them get out of it with the best returns; the most important of which is their safety. Accordingly, we have extended the period of all offers we had sent to our customers in order to allow them to focus on their safety and that of their families and colleagues. Business can always wait.

In addition, our new solutions include complete online training programs, online coaching for managing virtual teams, as well as webcasts covering many business aspects that are not only related to the current pandemic, but also cover important aspects on how to advance from it.
