SpeedDater 2.0: returning to real life with unique social distancing singles events


The coronavirus epidemic rocked many areas of our lives. One of them is acquaintances and meetings with new people, which allowed us to find each other, meet love and build relationships. Now, in the age of stay-at-home meetings, social distancing and masks, singles are finding it even more challenging to find a soulmate, much less maintain one.

To help people fight loneliness and continue the search for love during the lockdown period, SpeedDater, one of the leaders in the UK singles events market, launched virtual speed dating events, where people could date with each other without leaving home.

However, nothing can replace face-to-face communication, so as soon as the government announced lockdown easing measures from July 4, the SpeedDater team launched a new formats of offline events where people can mingle, observing all the rules of social distancing. The first event format is Picnic Speed Dating, which will be held in London, Newcastle and Manchester.

“The launch of our picnic dating events was in Battersea Park in London, on the 18th of July, where you were greeted by a glass of prosecco. The event consisted of getting to know each other and some fun social distancing games, frisbee and scatch. If you’ve been in lockdown for three months, doesn’t this just sound so enjoyable?” – Speeddater Events Manager, Sarah Payne described the first event.

At the moment, the company is developing other events formats that promise to be exciting.
“Dating during quarantine can be very inspiring! There is no need to stop searching for your soulmate. We already have many ideas that we are ready to implement in the very near future. Picnic Speed Dating will be our first social distancing format, but besides it, our customers will have other opportunities not only to find love, but also to have an extremely interesting time” – shared details Sarah Payne.

It should be emphasized that Virtual Speed Dating events, which the company has been running for more than three months, will remain a separate format on an ongoing basis. During this time, SpeedDater held about 200 online events, which were visited by more than 3,000 people.

Many of our customers liked the virtual dating format. It gives more freedom in actions – the event can be visited from anywhere, without wasting time on the road, and you can even go on a date in another city, which is impossible to do in offline format” – said Sarah.

Coronavirus has forever changed our lives, the SpeedDater team is confident, so we will continue to live in two dimensions – real and virtual. Thus, the company will try to take into account the needs of each customer by providing a variety of online and offline formats, where everyone will have the opportunity to meet true love.

At SpeedDater, we believe that chemistry happens only in person. You will never know if you’re truly compatible with someone until you meet face to face. This is what Speed Dating is all about. We offer busy professionals a great way to meet new people in a fun, safe and chilled environment.

Social Distancing Wearables Reduce Anxiety About Returning to Work


Careless workers flouting social distancing guidelines or those unable to fully engage due to anxiety or so engrossed that they forget about social distancing will be alerted if they overstep recommended distances. Beaconzone Ltd’s Social Distancing Solution (SDS) alerts users and stores data associated with the incidents. Employees can take the potentially nervous step back to work assured by their employer’s commitment to their wellbeing through investment in this technology.

Wearable devices alert users by emitting a flashing light and/or vibration if they overstep a set distance. The time and duration of a breach is stored then automatically synchronised with a station for review, tracking and tracing. Close contact event data enables identification of workers at risk so that they may be alerted and improvements made to working methods or patterns. Data is stored for future contact tracing if required.

SDS is a stand-alone ‘out of the box’ solution with no ongoing subscription. Data stays within the organisation. The wearable devices offer contact-free capability by synchronising automatically and work without WiFi, Ethernet or cellular connection.

Simon Judge of Beaconzone Ltd comments:

“Recognising an urgent need for organisations to return to work whilst mitigating concerns about social distancing we have applied our expertise in Bluetooth devices to work rapidly in developing this solution. Managers can be confident that members of their organisations will be automatically reminded to stay a safe distance apart. This will support leadership and waylay concerns as we start to get back to work.”

The Social Distancing Solution has been developed by Beaconzone Ltd in the United Kingdom, specialists in Bluetooth® beacon solutions.

An evaluation/starter kit which consisting of two devices and a station is available for immediate purchase.

How We Can Safely Start Filling Jobs Whilst Social Distancing


Launch of the new interview screening service Screenable

London based company Screenable have today announced the global launch of their video interview screening service across both web and app platforms. The release could not have come at a more crucial time for the global economy as businesses begin to reopen and focus turns to getting the world back to work following the Covid-19 lockdown. The smart screening service from Screenable is available for recruiters at screenable.co and delivers video interviews in 3 simple steps.

Screenable is designed to make it simple, quick and effective for both recruiters and applicants to manage the job application and interview screening process. As social distancing restrictions remain in place across many countries, face-to-face interviews are not viable yet interview screenings will be essential to recruiting moving forward. Recruiters can screen candidates as the CV’s land on their desk, speeding up and consolidating the interview process to ensure a more efficient recruitment journey.

There are no third parties involved, which speeds up the process and allows recruiters to manage their own portfolio with a bank of prepared questions. Screening requests can be sent directly to applicants or alternatively posted with the job advert across platforms. To help get our workforce back on its feet, Screenable is crediting all recruiter and employer accounts with screening credits. A selection of subscription plans and referral schemes are also available.

Due to the rise in recent unemployment we expect higher rates of job applications to manage, Screenable will make this process faster, smarter and cheaper. With video calls becoming a household staple over the lockdown period, people are more familiar and comfortable with being in front of a screen which has led to a rise in response rates from video screening applicants. The Hub on the Screenable platform will manage applicant responses and help build a portfolio of candidates for ongoing opportunities.

The Screenable mobile app on iOS and Android is free for applicants to build a private or public profile, as well as respond directly to screening requests from recruiters. Screenable has been carefully crafted to ensure applicants are given the opportunity to stand out from the crowds. Profile pages and CV’s will be supported by a series of video interviews to bring the candidate and their work experience to life. Applicants can share their profiles with potential employees and recruiters during their job search as well as post direct profile links to professional platforms such as LinkedIn.

Screenable is the video interview platform launched in 2020 from the UK.
