There is no denying that the pandemic has changed just about everything we know as normal. That especially applies to how we work. Hybrid workplaces are where it’s been heading, and they will continue to go moving forward by all forecasts. Gage has been helping companies adopt the hybrid workplace model with advanced technology solutions. What’s that mean exactly? Let’s take a deeper dive.
As restrictions begin to loosen, small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) are looking for ways to bring staff back into the office while simultaneously maintaining employee safety by utilizing a hybrid model that combines the best of in-person and remote work environments. One of the most significant challenges that businesses face when attempting to accomplish this is ensuring that all staff has the appropriate technologies to navigate in-person and remote environments seamlessly.
Suppose you’re a business owner and struggle with what are the best technologies to utilize. In that case, Gage will strategize the best way to optimize employee productivity as we all transition into the “new normal”. In fact, according to a survey conducted by a unit of S&P Global Market Intelligence, out of 575 IT decision-makers from a range of industries, they found that “67% of respondents expect work-from-home policies will remain in place permanently or at least for the long term,” which suggests that since businesses were given no choice but to adapt, they’ve managed to survive. If they want to position themselves for success in the future, they should ensure that their technology infrastructure is robust enough to support employees’ communication and collaboration. Furthermore, a Gallup poll revealed that “54% of office workers would be willing to quit their job for one that allows them to work remotely.” Whether a company goes full-remote or hybrid, it’s vital that they have the right technology systems in place to support productivity and accountability.
With all of this change, perhaps the biggest challenge is communication. Gage Cloud Voice enables integration of the cloud, the office phone, and the hybrid model’s flexibility, making communication seamless. If you’re wondering now that employees are working from their home offices, is the communication secure or are their networks exposed? In short, Gage Cloud Voice protects your information from cybercriminals and allows you to focus on your business without the headache of a breach.
