WFM – A Pandemic Panic or the Future Routine


For some firms, enabling staff to work from home has become a rushed necessity. However, now we’re almost two months into the ‘new normal’, it’s come clear to even the most reluctant business managed, that this model can work across many sectors.

Businesses that have implemented remote working policies report that they have experienced benefits such as:

  • Greater productivity
  • Increased employee satisfaction
  • Reduced business overheads
  • Lower absenteeism

Increased productivity is an excellent outcome however, it isn’t just about efficiency and output. It’s also about giving your people more freedom and flexibility in their working day; helping them achieve a better work-life balance.

Helping staff fit work around childcare – and homeschooling during the Coronavirus - or other personal commitments will improve staff retention and create a positive working environment where staff feel trusted and valued.

By offering flexible working, it can also become easier to recruit and retain staff, cutting recruitment and training costs for your business. Allowing remote IT working means you can give your customers a better experience too as your staff will be able to work outside of traditional office hours, if required.

You don’t need to leave your customers and colleagues behind when you’re not in the office. There are many services and tools available to ensure employees can work productively from home.

Of course, for people to work efficiently from home or on the move, they need to be able to access the systems they need to do their job. You will need to ensure security is maintained and confidential data is protected when devices are being used outside of the office environment.
