Each area of the business may have a different reason or challenge involved with mobilizing your workforce. Employees and HR recruiting teams want the flexibility of remote work – it offers an expected work/life balance seen as a must-have benefit for hiring and retention. The organization needs staff who are productive, creative problem-solvers no matter where they are working. IT wants a secure way to manage the multiple endpoints involved, which includes everything from corporate-issued laptops to personal smartphones, tablets and PCs.

Organizations that support a “work-style choice” culture will boost employee retention rates more than 10% by 2020, says a recent study by Gartner. Having a digital workspace solution that enables end-user computing, mobility management, and all networking requirements is key for companies that want to set up remote working for success.

The benefits of utilizing a digital workplace solution include:

  • Unified user experiences across multiple devices
  • Unified administration experience
  • A secure digital workspace
  • Aggregation of all apps and data across various applications, both on-premises and in the cloud
  • Access anywhere, at any time, on any device
