The annual survey last year by the Society for Human Resource Management found a greater increase in the number of companies planning to offer telecommuting in 2014 than those offering just about any other new benefit. By one estimate, telecommuting now makes up 2.6 percent of the American work force, or 3.2 million workers, according to statistics from the American Community Survey.
If your company allows employees to work from home or on location; their work depends entirely on their technology being reliable and functional. Managing the increasing technology demands of telecommuting employees isn’t easy for any business, but it can be especially challenging for small businesses. However, it doesn’t necessarily have to be difficult.
Vertical IT provides the right solutions for all of your employees including your teleworkers. The key to that is a combination of security, technology, and support.
Your company’s data is important and confidential. Just as your in-house computers are secured against hackers or data breaches; so should your teleworkers’. They are handling the same sensitive information as your onsite employees; it should be just as secure offsite as it is in the office. Vertical IT can teach these employees how to use caution in their web browsing and email interactions. We can set up the best protection for all of your employees, no matter where their offices are located.
With our guidance, you can find the best solutions for providing the right technology to your telecommuters.
