2 Ways Technology Can Help Employees Transition Back to the Office

As organizations across the globe are getting back to the office, one thing is certain: employees need workspaces that can adapt to changing demands. That’s why creating flexible approaches for your employees is critical to their productivity and well-being. But how do you enhance the employee experience while navigating uncertain times?

Migrating technology from one location to another doesn’t have to be daunting

The pandemic has shifted the focus to the importance of having a workforce that can operate anywhere, but your end-users don’t have to go unprepared. Let technology work in your favor and design a roadmap with a clear radar for success. Here are two ways you can use technology to help employees thrive no matter where they work:

1. Help your end-users adapt to changing demands

Having a comprehensive IT strategy for returning employees promotes a good employee experience. The same IT measures that were critical to business operations prior the pandemic are even more essential after the pandemic. To ensure a smooth employee experience to keep workers productive, IT leaders need an end-user platform that is:

  • IT-friendly, delivering apps and data regardless of where they are located
  • User-friendly, allowing for single sign-on to all apps and files and empowers employees with self-service and customizable tools
  • Mobility-driven, simplifying access to data anywhere at any time, and giving employees the flexibility to choose devices and work locations so they have an engaging digital experience
  • Secure, delivering security outcomes based on zero trust, unifying access to apps and data across different regions and dispersed offices, and centralizing enforcement of security policies.
  • Continuously connected, securing high-quality connections across remote locations, securely promoting virtual, cloud and SaaS apps across the enterprise, optimizing bandwidth, and providing an exceptional app experience.

2. Create a blended approach

The shift to remote work involves a massive shake-up of workplace culture and well-being, both of which are important to the success of digital transformation and long-term, flexible working. The key is for IT decision-makers to create a blended, hybrid approach to prepare to support remote work should another disruptive event occurs. This could involve setting up more physical and collaborative digital spaces regardless of where employees work. Some companies have already allowed their employees to work remotely indefinitely, and others may follow suit or set up a hybrid approach that allows employees to work remotely or in an office environment. Regardless of where they work, adopting an intelligent workspace can remove the complexity. This includes:

  • Simplifying mobility management by managing the myriad of mobile devices, desktops, IoT devices and laptops in one central platform
  • Ensuring employees get a consistent experience across iOS, Android and Windows
  • Providing choice and flexibility by implementing user access controls that change based on where employees work, simplifying and securing transitions between home and office
  • Leveling the playing field by adopting the right tools and technology so that your end-users get the same experience whether they are on a video call or in an office meeting face-to-face
