With the first week of 2018 almost over, it’s time to review how you’re doing with your New Year’s resolutions. Still as motivated as the day you set them? Or are you struggling to keep on top of things? We believe technology can be utilised as a catalyst for developing new habits and reaching your goals more effectively.
When considering a new role, 80% of applicants claim that work-life balance matters. This is now one of the key drivers for recruitment and it is critical that it is not ignored. Businesses need to provide their workers with the tools and opportunities to work effectively. With 19% of people including “spend more time with family and friends” on their resolution list, it’s time that businesses listen to the demands of their workers.
Cloud technology can allow them to do just that. By storing all applications and data in a secure environment, workers have the ability to access their entire workstation from any location, on any device. As a result, they are no longer restricted to the four walls of the office or the typical 9-5 working hours. They have the ability to adapt and mould to the way they want to work.
Britain’s output per hour worked is now 22.2% lower than that of the US. Being more productive is a common goal all year round. But as New Year brings new motivation, getting as much done as possible in as little time as possible is a heavy focus.
For businesses to get the most out of their working hours, they need to supply staff with the right tools to enable them to get on with their work with minimum disruption. With a Managed Service Provider, as all IT is outsourced and taken care of by the experts, businesses are free to concentrate on the stuff that really matters and work more efficiently. IT becomes invisible with all updates and backups managed and taken care of outside of the office.
It’s easy to lack motivation for every 9-5 day that comes along. Workers no longer need to be chained to their desks in order to work efficiently. As all applications and data are stored within a secure cloud platform, employees have the ability to make any location their office. They can switch up their location as and when they need to. 82% of telecommuters reported lower stress levels and with lower stress levels comes an increase in motivation. Remote workers are often more engaged with colleagues and supervisors than in-office workers, Harvard Business Review concluded.
It’s time to form new habits and cloud technology is an effective way of doing so. If you’re wanting to implement an approach to working that can supercharge productivity levels and improve employee motivation, do not hesitate to schedule a free demo today.
