Key Considerations to Supporting Work-at-Home Directives for Business Continuity
Extraordinary events have the potential to change company culture faster than any other action. A natural disaster or pandemic, for example, prompts organizations to quickly review or put in place new, out-of-office work processes and technologies to reduce employee productivity losses when self-, executive-, or government mandated employee isolation is necessary.
There’s no silver bullet for changing employee experience when a disruption occurs. Yet organizations can make progress today that will improve how their employees work from home while accelerating enterprise-wide, remote-first goals with a digital workspace strategy.
Five IT Principles Driving Employee Experience:
The steps leadership takes now to boost digital employee experience can quickly become the foundation for digital business or mission advantage later. That’s if IT and executive teams understand and agree on some basic, not necessarily new, principles:
1) Knowing what applications employees need
2) Knowing where key applications and data reside
3) Knowing which devices will connect (corporate-owned, personal, or both)
4) Understanding organizational collaboration and communication
5) Recognizing support will be an issue
