Mobile devices have made a huge impact on businesses and their operations, particularly as the workforce has become so dispersed. With collaboration now so critical, let’s talk about how you should be using mobile devices to maintain the connection between those working in and out of the office.
Since the global COVID pandemic forcibly introduced many, many businesses to the benefits of remote operations, there has been an increase in interest in hybrid workplace operations—a combination of the standard, in-office operations with remote work all working in tandem. However, for all its benefits, there are some threats that hybrid work brings with it that need to be acknowledged as well.
Remote work might be a somewhat new concept for some organizations, but it has proven to be an exceptionally helpful tool to have at one’s disposal. All that said, however, there are certain weaknesses that must be addressed if you want to take full advantage of the cloud, with one of them being the disconnection that comes from remote work. What does this disconnect mean for your business?
The modern business is heavily reliant on technology, perhaps more so today than ever before. In the wake of a pandemic that forced millions of employees to adapt to remote work, the need for technology and support has never been greater. Even as we transition back into business, as usual, it’s safe to say that remote technology is not going anywhere. Today, we would like to discuss how our organization was (and still is) helping businesses just like yours maintain operations through comprehensive IT support, even during the most difficult circumstances imaginable.
Remote work is a lot harder than it sounds, which took many workers by surprise when lockdowns suddenly made working from home the safest way for many companies to operate. As weeks and months have passed, there has been a growing tendency for these newly-remote workers to (putting it mildly) explore their other employment options… something that doesn’t bode well for your operations.
Businesses are using more remote workers than ever. The COVID-19 pandemic made it necessary for them to react and they did, but it has proven to have a handful of challenges. One of the most stark issues that remote workers face is the assault on their mental health. Most newly-remote workers once held several conversations with co-workers day-in and day-out and being isolated for 12 months has taken its toll. This shift is having negative effects on businesses from all over the world. Let’s take a look at a couple of things that you can do about it.
Many people now have experience working from home, which means that many people now have first-hand knowledge of just how draining it can be. And no wonder—the place you’d go to relax and unwind after the workday has suddenly become a place of work. In these conditions, it is even more important that your team can establish boundaries between “home” home and “work” home.
