How You Can Support Your Remote Workforce Today
March 19, 2020 | NECS
Countless offices around the world have chosen to go remote in an effort to be proactive amid the current COVID-19 outbreak. Many offices were prepared for this shift in business, others are scrambling to help their employees adapt to a new working environment. If you fall into the latter category, take a deep breath—this is something you can control.
If a remote workforce is simply not an option for your business, see this guide from HP.
Otherwise, here’s how you can support your remote employees today.
The number one thing we’ll stress (and you should too!) is that other than location, nothing has changed. This may be easier said than done, however, if no infrastructure is currently in place for them at home. We’re not saying you need to purchase a full home office set up for every employee, but there is a minimum requirement for working securely outside of the office network.
Documents are going to be sent back-and-forth now more than ever.
In order to protect sensitive data, we strongly recommend a reliable fax and cloud solution like Biscom. Biscom Secure File Transfer is a web-based solution that replaces insecure FTP (the transfer of computer files between a client and server on a computer network) and email. It enables your employees to securely deliver files, no matter where they are working, and that is extremely important.
It’s unclear at this time when preventative measures will no longer be necessary for companies and individuals, but if there is anything we can do to help support the continued operation of your business, please contact us today.
