Many companies have faced new challenges as the coronavirus pandemic swept the globe. Those companies had to create action plans to support remote employees on short notice.
Some of these companies have moved their entire workforce to laptops and other mobile equipment to let them work from home. This flexible work environment isn’t likely to change anytime soon and may lead to more long-term remote work.
Some companies were transitioning to remote work and hotdesking setups before COVID-19. The pandemic has only served to accelerate this trend.
Looking Beyond the Coronavirus and COVID-19
A short-term remote setup is easier to manage but there are some things to consider if you’re thinking about it longer-term.
Some of the questions you need to ask to determine if your setup is sustainable include:
- Have we deployed the right devices to allow remote employees to be productive in their roles?
- Do we need to roll out extra equipment or different equipment that’s better designed for working at home?
- Are iPhones and VoIP technology the best communication solution?
- Do you have a communication infrastructure in place to collaborate effectively?
Now is the perfect time to evaluate your company’s tech stack.
Investing in remote work and collaboration tools makes sense regardless of how long the coronavirus crisis is with us. Smartphones, laptops, and other mobile devices can help erase the line between “home” and “work.”
Many employees want to be able to make a contribution wherever they are, on a schedule that works for them. Studies have shown that flexible work policies help remote employees feel more engaged. And better engagement can lead to higher productivity.
Ideally, the equipment you provide your staff should help improve productivity and efficiency. This can help your company become more agile, more open to change, and better able to deliver positive results for your clients.
