Working remotely has already become the new normal. Many employees are now accustomed to working from home, embracing tools for productivity and communication. No commute, no dress code…what’s not to like? According to a recent study: 72% of office workers say they’d like to work from home at least two days a week, even after COVID-19 is no longer a threat. Has your workplace implemented a successful remote workforce setup?
Video meetings and sending quick texts have become routine ways for remote workers to stay in touch. “Prior to the outbreak of COVID-19, the IDC claimed that mobile workers will make up almost 75% of the total US workforce by the end of 2020. That number will likely be higher because of the move so many US businesses are making to remote work.” Are your employees asking for a better method of communication, both internally and externally?
Staying in touch with your team, suppliers, and customers is always important; however it’s even more vital during this time of uncertainty. Your organization needs reliable and efficient communication tools – during the pandemic and as the standard moving forward. “When people are quarantined or working at home to collaborate on projects and communicate, they soon find ways to make things easier. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has caused some notable changes to occur in the virtual workplace. These changes will have a lasting impact on future workplace habits.
In turn, enterprises are grabbing on to as-a-service (aaS) models to conform to these new and fast-emerging realities. Therefore, unified communications (UC) is extending its reach as the result of the COVID-19 crisis. From a business perspective, it bodes better for companies to switch to different models of UC services – something definitely worth implementing in today’s work-at-home business environment.” DMS2
