How to Keep Employees Productive from Anywhere

With the right tools and resources, both organizations and employees can take advantage of the many benefits of workplace flexibility, without compromising productivity.

An increasing number of organizations are embracing workplace flexibility. While the degree of adoption may vary – some organizations may implement occasional work-from-home policies while others may enable a fully-remote workforce – the keys to success are often the same. As teams become more dispersed, it’s essential that they are equipped with comprehensive resources and tools to stay productive from anywhere.

Equipping remote employees for success

Remote Access

Remote access to the corporate network is one of the most basic needs for a remote worker. Without a secure method for accessing corporate files, applications and other resources, employees can’t be as efficient as possible. For maximum productivity in any situation, a remote access solution should provide a seamless experience for workers across all locations and devices.

Project Tracking

When remote employees use different processes for tracking and managing projects, it can lead to reduced visibility, increased confusion and disconnected teams. A single, centralized project tracking solution improves efficiencies by streamlining communication and keeping tasks organized, so employees can concentrate on doing work rather than managing it.

Online Meetings

Working together effectively can be a challenge for remote teams. The limitations of email and phone can cause confusion and lead to wasted time, especially when many remote employees are involved. Online meeting tools can help overcome these challenges by creating the feeling of a face-to-face meeting to help enhance communication and build relationships.

File Sharing

Sharing, reviewing and revising documents is part of daily life for many workers. The ability to collaborate on files – without the headaches of wrangling multiple versions or the security concerns of emailing documents – is critical for maintaining productivity across dispersed teams. At a minimum, file sharing solutions should meet security requirements and be easy-to-use on any device.
