Spotify has recently joined the growing list of tech companies that have decided to keep allowing employees to work from home even after Covid-19. As we’ve discussed before, many people prefer working from home, and would rather have flexibility on whether they can work remotely or in an office.
In a survey carried out by Claromentis, it was found that 73% of UK workers want to split their
time working between the home and office after the pandemic. Why not? For many, the current
situation allows for a better work-life balance.
Across many sectors, remote working is here to stay, and most companies won’t be going back
to the old ‘normal.’ The ‘new normal’ is a changed landscape where employees are no longer
consistently accessing data or applications from a secure office environment.
In fact, the new normal is one of increased demand, increased cyber-security risks, increased
number of endpoints, cloud computing usage, remote workforces, mass change in service
delivery…it’s a long list.
With this shift in mind, IT directors and business owners have to ask themselves if they have
the best possible IT strategy for 2021. Of course, each strategy needs to be tailored to an
organisation’s individual needs, but in this post, we will look at how the right decisions can be
made to ensure your IT strategy optimises efficiency and security.
