It’s commonplace in working society that people miss out on time to relax because they’re so consumed with work. Everyone is used to early starts and late finishes because it has become part of a socially acceptable routine. We admire the ones who start at 7 am and finish well past 8 pm because of the ‘dedication’ they have to their job, but maybe there just aren’t enough hours in the day for them. In reality, we could all get back to a healthy work-life balance if your employer changed one thing: the IT setup.
Avoid being the last one to the party
Commitments after work may not allow the late hours you’re so used to. If you’ve got a lot of tasks to complete but not a lot of time, try working from home instead of commuting. In England alone, the daily commute to work has risen from 48 minutes to an hour, according to an article in The Telegraph. The article also highlights that those who travel to work and are stuck in traffic or delayed by a minimum of 20 minutes consider this as bad as taking a 19% pay cut. Imagine the difference those extra hours could make to your productivity (and your wages). With your desktop and applications stored in the cloud, you can log in from home and have access to everything you need – long distance travel for work will no longer be a daily issue.
Travel doesn’t equal lost time anymore
If you commute into work via public transport, you should try using this time to work. You’ll have a set period of time to focus and finish tasks before heading to the office. Hosting your desktop and applications on our cloud makes this trick super easy because you have 24-hour access with an Internet connection on your laptop, tablet, or mobile phone.
Flexible time means family time
By utilising technology that enables you to get on with work effectively, you are able to leave the office knowing everything that needed to be done, has been completed during your working hours. In addition to this, any family commitments during working hours can be tended to due to the complete flexibility cloud computing can offer. You can reclaim your downtime again, allowing you to switch off and spend quality time doing what you love.
