How to Overcome the Post Pandemic Digital Challenges
The workplace is again bracing itself for yet another change or transition. Now, as we start moving towards some sort of normalcy, the workplace and our work patterns will also need to be re-calibrated in most of the cases.
While some organizations, and a few very notable ones, will continue the Work from Home (WFH) routine as such, we should expect a return of employees to the physical workplace in most of the cases.
So, this presents yet another huge challenge for IT professionals, who had hardly finished maturing work environments for remote work scenarios. The first question that both administrative and IT managers need to address is the extent of return to the office.
This in turn will form the baseline as to where your IT infrastructure currently stands, and where it needs to be, in order to accommodate the “new normal” that has emerged after mass vaccinations across the globe.
In most cases, perhaps the most prudent and safe approach would be to plan a transitioned or phased return to the physical workplace. This appears to be the most feasible option for all the key stakeholders involved.
Many IT and network managers will need to prepare their IT infrastructures for a hybrid working model in the first phase, where some employees would still work remotely, while others would physically visit the workplace.
Whether its full-on remote work, everyone in the workplace, or a mix of both, the Cloud presents itself as the most suitable technology platform. Cloud solutions such Cloud Hosted Virtual Desktops offered by dinCloud prepare you for Work from Anywhere (WFX).
This work from anywhere capability, made possible by the Cloud, not only prepares you for this transition in progress, but also for similar challenges that your enterprise may confront in the future as well. The Cloud is a great means of securing your present and future needs.
You also need to bring your employees fully on board, so they feel a part of this whole transition process. They are a key stakeholder in the whole transition process and their valuable input as well as feedback can prove really helpful.
By making your employees a part of this whole return to the “new normal”, you will be making the transition much easier. Your employees will take more ownership of the whole process and its quite likely there will be no notable drop in productivity levels as well.
