It has been almost six months since the first Covid-19 restrictions were put in place and businesses were forced to turn to remote working options. Many studies are being done on the implications of this to the working environment, we gathered some of the most important statistics that represent the employee and manager attitude towards technology, cybersecurity, business strategy and work environment.
Many employees would like to stay working from home permanently after the Covid-19 crisis which could reshape the businesses structure and environment of many organisations worldwide. Managers will have to learn how to manage remote teams and provide the support needed to keep the organisation in touch.
Companies who want to keep remote working as a permanent change and an option for their employees will have to make significant investments into providing employees with reliable WiFi, VPN access as well as collaboration applications.
Cybersecurity stays an important concern, especially when working from home as employees are using unsecured home/public broadband making them a target for cyber attacks.
