It is no secret that the implementation of technological solutions is beneficial for companies of all sizes. Especially after the rocky road of Covid-19, businesses simply cannot function without the use of technology. Technology makes our professional lives much more efficient, productive, and enjoyable.
Below we have listed 3 of the most important ways that technology makes an impact on performance and comfort among employees, as well as boosting the potential for your business to grow.
Reliable devices for high performance
In many ways, employees rely on technology to perform and deliver their duties. We cannot picture an office without computers, mobile devices, high-speed internet, cloud storage, and a number of applications that support employees' productivity. You need to make sure that your teams are equipped with relevant devices specified to their working needs. You should have some idea of the type of devices that would suit your employees best, but if you are not sure, ask one of our IT technicians who can advise what options are available. After living and working through lockdown, we have had a large spike in laptop and mobile orders, as well as requests to set up cloud storage – If you could benefit from these services, please get in touch today!
Connection, Communication and Availability
Efficiency in communicating is key for any type of business, so having a poor communication system is not an option - especially when you have a great choice of applications that will help and improve communications for a dynamic workforce. A few of the applications that we would recommend are Teams, Zoom and Office UC. These all allow employees to talk to each other without the need to go to the office. Projects can easily be monitored, and with one click - instantly discussed. Virtual meetings can take place, without having the issue of booking conference rooms or employees being unavailable due to working in another city.
Such applications used to be viewed as supplementary, assisting largely office-based teams. However, when they are utilised properly it allows businesses (and their employees) to have real flexibility in the way they work.
Remote working can be a great benefit to your workforce productivity. The office can be a stressful environment filled with distractions, short deadlines, impatience, and negative interactions between employees. Let us not forget about the reduction in virus spreading (like the common cold), which leads to sicknesses, and a shortage of staff. These elements not only have an unhealthy impact on the mental health of your employees but their physical health too. Moving your employees to a hybrid working model - working at home and the office, can help to keep them safe, healthy and boost morale.
If your employees are already working remotely, look at our informative blog post, that explains how IT can support your staff working in hybrid mode.
Without a shadow of a doubt, upgraded technology can bring improvements to all the processes within your business as well as improving the efficiency, health, and safety of your employees. Which, in turn, will greatly boost the efficiency and performance of your company.
