Cloud setups can be the antidote to a monotonous work life for many people. But how?
It’s an out-of-the-box solution but it’s slowly becoming the norm. Millennials are the most demanding generation. We want everything to be accessible all the time, and don’t want to have to wait. It’s why technology plays such an important role in our lives. It’s also why companies should be looking to improve their IT set up to meet the demands of modern day workers.
A flexible lifestyle
Your staff will be much happier if they are allowed to fit working around what they need to do in their personal life. It’s about supplying a choice to work in the office or from home. It’s about allowing them to make their contracted hours up in ways that work for them and trusting them to do so. If they are better at working later in the day, why not offer a later starting time? Their effectiveness isn’t based on how long they spend in an office, but rather about their output on a day-to-day basis.
New experiences and variation
If you can offer traveling opportunities to your employees, it could be more effective than throwing more money at them. Nowadays, employees look for an experiential investment than a monetary one. If there is no way to experience more than just a 9-5 office job with a pay rise every so often, you aren’t offering anything different. Your job opening will only appeal to those who are financially driven – not people who give the best of themselves to their career. By providing staff with the tools they need to access their entire work desktop from any location, you have more of a reason to offer out of office opportunities to them. They can continue to work from any location and productivity won’t be affected.
It all starts with your IT set up
Frankly, if you don’t have a cloud set up in place, the benefits above aren’t on offer. By hosting all of your files and applications in the cloud, you can access them from anywhere and at all times. Implementing a cloud strategy will help you manage your business easier, allow your staff to work more hours and increase overall productivity during and outside of office hours.
With the new year approaching, it’s a great time to start thinking about bringing in new changes. Start your journey to the cloud today by contacting our team.
