Productive and Secure Remote Workers

The Evolution of Office Work in the Post-COVID Era: The global pandemic has significantly altered office work dynamics, leading to a marked preference among employees for remote work. This shift is driven by the desire to avoid commuting expenses and the stress associated with traditional office environments. We see first-hand our largest clients who had 200+ employees in the office, typically now have 5 or 10!

Dell’s Workforce and Remote Work Preferences: A notable case study is Dell, where a substantial, about 50%, portion of the workforce has expressed a preference for remote work, foregoing potential promotions or new opportunities in favor of the benefits associated with working from home, such as increased free time, reduced expenses, and diminished stress levels. See this article for more details: Dell workforce refuses to return to the office.

Employees site strong reasons to not go back to the office:  Employees who were interviewed stated their reasons as: more free time, lower costs, and lower stress. Further stating “nothing could get them to give it up now. Many Dell employees admitted they were looking for other work opportunities that did not corral them into working at the office. Employees even stated they would rather work from home than be eligible for promotions and new roles. Employees do not want to work from the office anymore, they do not want to deal with the day-to-day commute, the traffic, and the stress of driving as well.

Remote Work: A Strategic Advantage for Employers: For employers, remote work presents strategic advantages in talent acquisition and cost management, provided they equip their teams with the necessary tools and systems to maintain productivity and ensure security. Notable tools facilitating this transition include ActivTrak, Microsoft 365 Cloud PCs, remote desktop solutions, autopilot features, and comprehensive security monitoring systems. Having the right systems in place can take away the risk and concerns you may have about remote workers.

Facilitating Remote Communications: Facilitating effective communication is a critical concern for remote workers and Microsoft 365 Teams is a powerful tool that addresses this issue. Microsoft Teams provides a centralized platform where remote workers can collaborate, share ideas, and stay connected. It offers features like video conferencing, instant messaging, file sharing, and collaborative editing of documents in real-time, replicating the dynamics of an in-person meeting or brainstorming session. Teams also integrates seamlessly with other Microsoft 365 applications, enhancing productivity and efficiency. However, to leverage these benefits, businesses must ensure that their employees are well-versed with the platform. Regular training sessions, creating comprehensive user guides, and providing ongoing IT support can help in maximizing the potential of Microsoft Teams for remote communication. This way, Microsoft Teams can significantly alleviate the communication concerns of remote workers, fostering a more engaged and cohesive virtual workforce.
