Other employees may have found they’re more comfortable working at home. There, they’re able to focus on the task in front of them. They may prefer to fit work around other equally important obligations. And some do so to be able to live further afield – even abroad.
Here are four more tips – this time for giving your remote workers the best collaborative tools.
Before the remote working revolution, employees only used their home internet service in the evenings and weekends. But now, entire households can be working and learning from home – and stretching the bandwidth thin.
Giving them dedicated broadband means your home-based employees aren’t competing for connectivity with the rest of their household. Meanwhile, mobile business broadband can do the same for employees on the move – so, they don’t have to rely on patchy hotel or coffee shop WiFi to work.
Whether they’re making a call over lunch or just stepping out for a stroll, employees don’t want their collaboration tools to tie them to one place.
A flexible unified communication solution could be the answer. These solutions make voice, video, messaging and resource-sharing available and consistent between employee devices. And the best of them are not only compatible with the market’s most popular providers – but also work with numerous APIs and a wider developer community for seamless integration.
Working from home doesn’t mean employees should settle for consumer security tools. Enterprise-grade security must go beyond the office doors – to every remote employee and workspace connected to your network.
The rise of mobile working means there are mobile-first cyber security solutions available. With these, employees, managers and IT specialists can get a complete view of the business’s IT estate – and the insights, intelligence and protection they need to work remotely with confidence.
Whether in the office, at home or somewhere between the two, there’s one place that brings every employee together – the cloud. It’s how they save and share work. It’s how they collaborate. And somewhere behind the scenes, it’s where the vast quantities of business and customer data are created and stored.
But while the cloud may be out of sight, it can never be out of mind. Consider working with a connectivity partner to manage the complicated parts – like migration, security, applications and backup – so you can focus on doing your best work wherever you are.
We know the working world is constantly changing and adapting, we’re here to help your business navigate these changes every step of the way – in both the office, and at home.
