Too Many Employees Are Working With Outdated Technology
Find out how to correct this issue
Modernizing your remote workforce capabilities is a priority that your business cannot afford to ignore. By modernizing your systems, your business is better equipped to accommodate increased bandwidth usage, which enables employees to be agile so they can see around corners to challenges that lie ahead. Modernization also includes the adoption of new policies and expectations that cultivate a winning and supportive culture for remote workers.
To remain competitive, your organization will need to invest in sustainable and secure infrastructure as well as updated and flexible cultural norms that keep employees engaged. Here are some steps you can take to modernize your remote workforce.
Commit to Ongoing Network Infrastructure Updates
According to a recent report, more than 75 percent of companies surveyed said that their employees are now working from home. For some, the shift to remote work has resulted in increased network traffic on systems that were not set up to accommodate the surge. According to that same report, roughly a third of organizations said they were not sufficiently prepared for such a rapid shift from on-premises to remote work. With around 84 percent of U.S. organizations expecting remote work to expand after the coronavirus pandemic passes, keeping your network infrastructure updated and secure is a commitment that cannot go unfulfilled. Plan to make initial improvements but realize that your work is not done. You’ll need to create both short- and long-term strategies to ensure that your systems are sustainable and secure far into the future.
