Safeguarding a post-Covid future

Remote working during the pandemic has been a massive success story, with the IT department as its largely unsung heroes. Businesses not dependent on face-to-face interactions have survived and thrived during lockdowns and restrictions, as staff have been able to continue working effectively and securely from home, on their corporate or personal laptops, PCs and other devices.

Adopting home-based working practices has shown a number of benefits, including increased productivity, low levels of absenteeism, improved staff retention and reduced office space costs. So, while for some employees the initial enthusiasm for a fully home-based working life has now worn thin, we can look forward to a future where a ‘blended’ home/office workstyle may well be the norm.
