Work From Home Survey
Before lockdown there were only 5 percent of workers prefer work from home. Then the pandemic hit and forced people to work from home. As a result after pandemic, 87 percent of workers wanted the ability to choose where, how, and when they should work. Said the Cisco’s report on on Wednesday (Oct 14). The report said it is a blending between being office-based and working remotely.
Cisco vice-president Gordon Thomson also said that companies would have to reconfigure how they operate. Because, it is to help meet the new demands of workers, who prioritise effective communication and collaboration above everything else.
Technology to Work From Home
He said to ensure employee safety and data security, the company must use technology. This could include, for example, sensors that monitor the heating and lighting in a home work station, or technology that checks social distancing, and whether people are wearing masks in the office, he added.
“It’s not just about connecting people anymore; it’s about the experience you deliver to people as they are connected,” he said in an interview.
“We are investing far more in the analytical piece that goes behind the connectivity.”
