As many business have moved to working from home to stop the rapid spread of the Coronavirus and as there are more temporary laws enacted for businesses to do so, there are important considerations for employers to have regarding setting up work-from-home strategies and whether or not it is the right course of action.
Sending employees to work-from-home offers some challenges including:
- Loss of in-person meetings
- Feelings of disassociation from the organization
- Employee Accountability
- Employee Supervision
There are ways to temporarily resolve this through creating a remote worker enabled environment. Utilizing Unified Communications and Voice Over IP (VoIP), allows for:
- Cloud VoIP Calling
- Remote File Sharing
- Cloud Desktop Workspace
- Audio/Video Conferencing for Face-to-Face Meetings
- Cloud Contact Centers for better client servicing
We have encouraged our employees to work from home and our offices are closed for in-person meetings until March 27, 2020. Luckily, we operate our business in the cloud and so do our clients. This means, they can access their valuable work and communications tools from anywhere with an Internet connection – including cell phones and tablets, meetings systems, and more.
We have received many calls of businesses not set up for full cloud-based operations. If your employees do not have remote access to the tools they need, please call us so we can help you keep your business running! We are available to discuss how to keep your business secure and Voice & IT Disaster Recovery scenarios.
