Supporting Your Remote Employees
During the COVID-19 Crisis
Fitbit Care Ready for Work
Empower Employees to Make More Informed Decisions
A recent Gartner poll shows that 88% of US organizations have encouraged or required employees to work remotely due to COVID-19(1). That means millions of people were forced to change the way they live and work almost overnight, and employers were faced with an unprecedented challenge: how to help employees stay motivated, connected and healthy amid a global pandemic.

FITBIT’S ROLE IN GROUNDBREAKING RESEARCH. We’re proud to be collaborating with The Scripps Research Institute and Stanford Medicine on groundbreaking research that will use Fitbit data to help detect, track and contain infectious diseases like COVID-19. Early evidence exists showing that wearables, like Fitbit devices, have the potential to help predict the onset of an infectious disease like the flu before symptoms start, and the goal of this new study is to unlock similar potential through leading research institutions in response to COVID-19. Learn more about how you and your employees can join the study.
