Working From Anywhere: Business Problem Series

In our Business Problem Series, we tackle challenges big and small with proactive technical solutions. Today we're talking about how to safely work from anywhere.

The Problem

With everything going on in the world, many people are working remotely these days, some are coming back to the office, or doing a combination of both. Having a strong "Work From Anywhere" strategy is absolutely essential.

But when an employee asks to work remotely, or to continue to work remotely, how do you decide whether or not to approve it? Obviously, there are HR considerations, their performance, and their productivity. We’re going to focus on the technical side of things.

Do they have the right set up? Will they be able to function effectively? Are you setting them up for success?

Six Questions

There are six key technical questions you should ask before letting anyone continue — or start — working remotely. They cover everything hardware setup to internet connectivity. We break down each one in our latest Business Problem Series video. Watch it now.

In this fast-changing business environment, strong technology strategy needs to be based on strong best-practices standards. Looking at this proactively is key. You can become more proactive by reviewing your technology against these and other "Work From Anywhere" standards on a regular basis — at least monthly.

This is how you create strong technology strategy. That's how you move away from reactive IT to Intelligent Technology.
