Support seasonal employees
If your company is considering options for supporting seasonal employees, you’re far from alone. More than half of employers are now open to the idea of bridging gaps with interim workers. In fact, 71% of senior managers consider longer periods of temporary work to be comparable to full-time jobs2. In peak seasons and busy times, these alternative arrangements make great business sense. However, for employees to be as productive as possible, IT must provide the resources they need to get their jobs done. With Citrix Managed Desktops, you can rapidly provision Windows apps and desktops for temporary employees—and easily close them down when they’re no longer needed. You pay only for what you use, without having to worry about expensive hardware that sits idle during down times.
Transition with ease
It’s not just seasonal setups that increase the need for cloud-based solutions. Desktops as a Service (DaaS) can help in times of transition, too. Half of all mergers fail because companies have a hard time holding on to key personnel,3 with as much as 47% of essential staff leaving within a year of mergers, acquisitions, divestitures and joint ventures4. Too often, technology is to blame for these setbacks—which is why it’s so essential to equip employees with the right resources. Citrix Managed Desktops makes it easy to spin up desktops on demand so your merger is ready from day one. You can instantly put everyone on solid ground, with equal access to the shared information and apps. And with Citrix SD-WAN, you can safely connect users to their workloads in the cloud without going through security proxies that can add latency. Teams will have fast, seamless access to the services they need to onboard and integrate new employees...and make every member feel right at home.
Keep productivity flowing
Does your company frequently enlist help from offshore developers and vendors? Often, these are the workers who most need to use your apps. But it’s more than just access to resources that will keep them productive. Developers and programmers will struggle to meet demands unless they have a user experience that mimics traditional desktops...even when working with intensive graphics and tools. With 48% of employees wishing their workplace technology performed more like their personal technology, meeting these needs is no easy feat5. Citrix Managed Desktops makes it easy. With Windows desktop-as-a-service, contractors are ensured exceptional performance no matter where work is getting done. You can enable secure access to apps and data from anywhere globally, ensuring each vendor has the right desktop for the right job, all from the same turnkey solution.
