remote work

Enable your employees to work anywhere. Efficiently and securely.

If you want to know just how dramatically the world has changed over the last months, consider how your opinion on working from home has changed since March. For many, remote work – or telework - used to be an option that was nice to have if you needed it or if you were getting some extra things done over the weekend. But no one imagined that in a brief time we would all be working from home, whether we liked it or not.

remote work challenges

The Challenge.

As we start getting used to a new normal reality, many businesses are now offering employees an option to work from home, from office, or split the week between the two. This poses a number of challenges to all, but thankfully technology is there to help management devise the right approach for the organisation.

A Microsoft paper - The Future of Business Resilience - further expands on this by highlighting the need to fundamentally rethink and change how businesses operate.
