Our Guide to Remote Working
While Covid-19 restrictions are slowly lifting, many businesses are choosing to stay working remotely to reduce the chance of spreading the virus within an office environment.
As businesses reflect on the success of their remote working efforts, those looking to adopt the changes on a more permanent basis should now use this time to think about their short, medium or long-term plans.
No matter what setup your business has in regard to remote working, there is always room to improve the digital experience when working outside of the office. As attitudes toward remote working change, so should the approach toward technology and the tools needed to accommodate this new way of working.
For many businesses, this period will allow them to start testing remote working in a ‘hybrid’ environment. Instead of switching completely to a remote based environment, you can begin by working a few days from home, progressively developing the technology needed for longer term changes. This time will ultimately prove what new technology is required, what older technology will be faded, and what existing technology can be adapted and utilised.
