Another take on the Covid-19-prompted working from home trend, this from the InsiderPro blog:
“Does moving more of the workforce permanently remote require remediation in the months to come?
“The crisis has ‘appropriately proven to many executives they can run their companies from home,’ Davis says. Former Gartner analyst and global growth evangelist for Salesforce, Tiffani Bova agrees: ‘The technology is there but it continues to be a people and process and a new mindset problem. In other words, it will not be the way we educate, teach, provide healthcare, sell, market, or collaborate until it’s forced to be.’
“However, McBreen says, ‘process reviews will be important in the months to come. This includes making sure that collaboration tools are robust enough.’ Gold agrees and suggests ‘with work from home you better have a robust remote system in place, including full remote management and security.'”
Not surprisingly, security arrangements are always a key aspect of discussions on working from home.
