The results are in, and remote work is here to stay. According to a Gallup poll, 91% of U.S. workers currently working fully or partially remote hope to continue working remotely after the pandemic. For employers, that means taking the necessary steps to support a fully remote or hybrid workforce. If they don't, they risk losing talent, as 30% of workers say they are highly likely to seek out another opportunity if their company removes the option to work from home.
Adopting Remote Work
The first step in adopting a permanent work from home policy is getting your users plugged into your company's systems as they will need access to all the necessary applications and files. Additionally, each device will need to be configured with cybersecurity in mind, as remote work comes with added risks. Lastly, those devices will need to be delivered, and the device/user will need to be onboarded. That's a lot of work to get devices in the hands of your employees.
