Remote working is increasingly common as businesses look to save costs, boost flexibility and reduce their physical presence. Some firms will often have a sizeable portion of their workforce off-site, but during a crisis – whether it is local to your business or on a global scale – that can change to a majority, or even all of your staff, as employees are required to work from home.
Managing corporate systems is a difficult task at the best of times, and a crisis is far from the best of times. This is when the responsibility for keeping the business running falls firmly on IT’s shoulders. Just a few of the major challenges include keeping the infrastructure upright; ensuring that everyone can access corporate systems securely; and combatting stress and feelings of isolation amongst staff using communication tools.
In this webinar, we will look at the role of IT in a global crisis and how IT leaders can help their company to not only continue to operate, but to achieve success and assure the wellbeing of their colleagues.
Discussion points will include:
The first steps you should take to ensure business continuity.
How to securely manage corporate identity and remote access.
Caring for employee mental health, and maximising performance, by maintaining strong lines of communication.
