The future of work is here – and it’s remote

Get up. Go to work. Put in your eight hours. Go home. Get up tomorrow and do it again. For many people, this routine was the rhythm of their lives before the pandemic – but it may be gone for good.

Over the past decade, with fast internet speeds and a truly globalised workforce, companies around the world have warmed up to the idea of remote working.

Enter the pandemic in 2020 and necessity suddenly forced billions of people around the world to abandon the office and achieve workplace results from the comfort (or discomfort) of their homes.

With many companies choosing to stay remote or adopt a hybrid business model in and after the pandemic, there’s no returning to the old normal. Let’s take a look at the future of work and how technology, including cloud storage, can make the transition easier for us.

what does a winning business look like in 2022?

The benefits of remote working are plain to see, but how do you integrate them into your company to maximise productivity and give yourself a competitive edge?

Let’s imagine an ideal company that takes advantage of the powerful tech on offer today without losing that essential human touch. It would probably have these tech forward features:

  • Fast Internet. Doing business online and using cloud storage for your sensitive data is pointless if you don’t have the bandwidth to back it up. A fibre Internet connection is essential in 2022.
  • Remote productivity solutions. From collaborative apps like Slack and a full suite of office utilities to a remote database solution, the choice of software for remote working has never been wider. Finding the best solution to suit your business may be a matter of trial and error, but it’s well worth it!
  • Data security. The more we do online, the more of a target we become for cyber criminals. Just like a bigger retail business requires more security than a tiny store, your business will require enhanced antivirus, firewall, encryption, and cloud storage solutions as it grows.
