The Covid-19 pandemic proved that working from home IS possible, even for businesses that have previously dismissed it as an option. In fact, the mass move to homeworking, almost overnight, showed that business continuity, productivity, camaraderie and morale can be maintained with relative ease, even when colleagues are based in multiple different locations.
However, true flexible working should allow employees to do their job from anywhere – HQ, a satellite office, at home, a co-working space or any other remote environment. But there’s more to making this a success than simply having a laptop and a mobile.
If remote working is to become a long-term, effective strategic workforce policy – as described by Gartner – employees need to stay connected, data should be subject to the same security protocol as in the corporate environment, and the customer experience must remain faultless.
Hybrid working solutions, fit for the future, need to stack up.
Covid-19 may have kickstarted more digital transformation projects in one year than we previously saw in an entire decade, but Vapour’s cloud technology has been fuelling powerful businesses since our company was founded. For us, remote working is nothing new.
Our clients realise that to attract the best talent, provide the greatest level of customer service, and deliver fluid growth, they must banish the traditional 9-5. And our ‘hidden’ technology keeps large corporates agile, contact centres communicating, nationwide operations connected and ambitious SMEs robust. But it’s never prescriptive.
Studies have revealed that homeworking doesn’t suit everyone, nor will it be all that colleagues demand from their employers moving forward – Covid ripped up the workplace rulebook for good. So, can your colleagues truly work from anywhere?
We’re here to activate change, seamlessly.
