With current events in mind, is your organization ready for large scale remote work? Ready or not, many contingency plans are requiring mobilization of a Work from Home labor force. This webinar allowed us to discuss ways to bolster your current policies as well as options to prepare and support the needs of these critical employees.
We used the concerns of COVID-19 in our presentation to safely engage with our community and showcase the importance of remote workforce enablement. Remote work is suddenly a reconsideration for many employees and an overnight requirement for some. Few organizations feel prepared for large-scale remote work, but you can take steps to make the experience productive for both employees and your organization.
Technology plays a key role in enabling communication and remote work, but in a recent Gartner poll, 54% of HR leaders indicated that poor technology and/or infrastructure is the biggest barrier to effective remote working in their organization. Cloud-based productivity tools and other employee-facing technologies are increasingly prevalent in today’s workplaces, but this sudden large-scale remote-working experiment will definitely surface additional lessons learned and opportunities for improvement.
During this timely ½ day webinar, we discussed the critical aspects of remote workforce enablement such as planning, unified collaboration, security, leveraging current Microsoft assets owned, and disaster recovery.
