Who would have thought just a few months ago that so many of us would suddenly find ourselves working remotely from home? For many companies, remote work was a growing trend, but not necessarily a need. Enter COVID-19 and, ready or not, many of us had to adapt to working full time from home.
However, it seems that many are planning on continuing to work from home once the pandemic subsides. A recent Angus Reid survey revealed that among those working from home only 36 per cent say they will likely go back to their place of work when COVID-19 concerns recede.
If you’re still working through the kinks of having your team working remotely, have no fear, we’re here and we’re ready to help!
Call the IT Specialists
Whatever happens in the upcoming weeks and months with your business, know that our team of IT specialists is here for you. We’re ready to provide the support you need, no matter how far along you are in the transition process.
As you already know, to be productive at home your team needs access to the right equipment and tools. At the onset when remote working happened practically overnight you most likely didn’t give this much thought until you were a few weeks in, with your team was making due working on their laptops at the kitchen table.
You probably didn’t realize how much your team relied on your office scanner and printers until you were no longer networked to them. And your cell phone probably doesn’t offer basic services like you’d find in the office, like three-way calling, a corporate directory, or four-digit dialing.
Working without the resources you’ve used for years isn’t just frustrating, it impacts productivity.
