With more people working from home than ever before, remote working solutions are critical to the success of your business.
But what should you be providing to your staff to keep them connected and productive, and how can you leverage all the benefits of transitioning to the cloud?
Keep in regular contact via videoconferencing
One of the drawbacks of having your entire team working from home is that there are fewer personal interactions throughout the day. This can not only impact staff camaraderie, but it can also negatively affect wellbeing and productivity levels.
That’s why smart leaders are using video conferencing to their advantage. You can use it to keep in touch with your teams, conduct weekly brainstorming sessions or catch-ups, book in one-on-ones with employees who thrive on human interaction, and even organise virtual Friday drinks.
The ability to share your screen also means meetings are streamlined, and collaboration can thrive when everyone is using the same platform.
Protect your business by securing all mobile devices
Remote working solutions like mobile handsets, tablets, wireless modems and business-dedicated software will help your team transition easier, stay connected and collaborate.
However, to ensure your company and its assets are fully protected, it’s important to deploy a mobile device management (MDM) system.
This will monitor, manage and secure your team’s mobile devices so you can protect your data, lock any devices that are lost, and alter sensitive settings when necessary.
The best remote working solutions live in the cloud
Many businesses are now realising that remote work is more beneficial than they previously thought. The cloud is at the heart of this change.
A secure and holistic business network that lives in the cloud is the future, but the COVID-19 pandemic has caused many employers to accept they are not adequately equipped to work remotely for the long term.
That’s why now is the time to invest in a cloud migration strategy to ensure all your IT, data and communication needs are met. The result will be a digital-strong workforce who are able to take care of their day-to-day tasks, chat via video, phone or instant message, and even manage their clients’ needs entirely remotely. All without feeling like they are on their own!
