How to transform into a digital workspace
5 ways to empower your employees—while you keep your data secure
The way that we can work—and how we prefer to work—is changing rapidly
Just a few years ago, employees spent most of their time in the office sitting at a desk, with apps and data tied to on-premises servers. Now, digital technologies give employees more flexibility in how and where they work. In fact, 40 percent of organizations have employees that work from home full time. Research shows that this number will increase to 56 percent within two years.
Flexible work environments are now so important that they impact your ability to attract and retain top talent. According to a poll by Gallup,2 37 percent of employees would change jobs to have the ability to work where they want at least part of the time. Companies are responding to these shifts by empowering their employees to work from any device and location. But supporting your flexible, modern workforce doesn’t come without challenges.
