Work is What We Do, Not Where We Go - An 8020 Insight on Remote Working

 

Work is what we do not where we go.


Are remote jobs the future of working?


Many people are now working remotely, carrying out their workload in a coffee shop, on the train or at their kitchen table. Technology is making this possible and it is reported that as many as half of us will be remote working to some degree by as early as 2020.

These days, mobile working is more than making a few calls and replying to a couple of emails. Some people run their entire business from their mobile, making notes, accessing business apps, working on spreadsheets and creating and sending invoices.
The arrival of the computer changed the way we worked and today connectivity and digital tools are changing where we work. Travelling to offices has been replaced by phone and video conferencing. Remote workers, like engineers and police officers, now use tablets and mobile devices to access systems on the move. There’s no need to return to the office to complete forms, keeping people where they’re needed most.
Delivering on these aspirations would once have been a potential headache for an IT department. However, it’s now possible to deliver seamless, flexible and mobile working across multiple devices, securely, reliably and efficiently through solutions such as Office 365 and Mobile Device Management.
To benefit from remote working you need a setup that allows that flexibility. Whether it be a mobile phone, tablet or laptop allowing you to work from anywhere.
