Supporting a Remote Workforce Long Term
Will Your Quarantined Remote Workers Remain Remote?
As months of work-from-home quarantine life becomes the new normal, there’s a real chance that at least a portion of your remote workforce will stay remote – but is your IT department prepared for a long-term transition?
Serendipitously, COVID19 caused many businesses to realize the benefits of having employees work from home because it enabled greater cost savings and employee productivity. But when the pandemic began companies had no time to prepare. They were focused on short-term goals – just getting their employees computers and monitors to be able to work from home at all. If you’re looking to transition a portion of your remote workforce permanently, you need to create a business continuity plan to ensure a sustainable transition. If this is not done strategically, you can end up losing control of costs and spending more money on technology…potentially opening yourself up to security risks. With the right managed services partner, you can make sure you are prioritizing the technology that you need in the most cost effective way for sustainable long term support.
A typical employer can save about $11,000 per year for every person who works remotely 50% of the time.1
