Those who read our post Employees Who Work from Home are More Productive will have seen a quick mention that half of the British workforce will work from home by 2020. Maybe some of you thought that this particular announcement was a bit overlooked?
We agree, so we thought it was worth studying the statistic more in-depth and analysing the implications of such a fundamental change in the way businesses operate.
First of all, this is could be one of the biggest changes in British employment since the Industrial Revolution, when the British workforce moved from the countryside to cities in droves. It reshaped the whole landscape of the UK and allowed companies to realise production speeds never before known, which is very much what's happening all over again.
Two centuries later, this revolution has the potential to be just as momentous, freeing employee and employer alike without any of the smog or noise. An organisation with good remote working systems in place is free to access talent from anywhere. One with exceptional remote working such as GoCloud can even undertake projects stretching across the globe seamlessly.
Remote working means that employees are free to work from wherever they feel most comfortable, leading to greater morale and higher productivity. They can also go wherever they are most needed with ease, accessing any resources through their remote desktops. This can take countless forms, such as assessing a manufacturing facility and feeding back live, or meeting a client who is sadly still office bound, no matter where they are based.
In the past, economies of size and ‘kill or be killed’ business strategies meant that the big businesses trampled on everyone else. However, GoCloud offers an equally outstanding solution to clients of any size, from up-and-coming SMEs, to large multinationals. This is all very good for our entrepreneurial culture, but it’s even better for GoCloud partners because it means that every business is a prospect.
GoCloud works on an easily flexible and scalable system, so clients can start with anything from just a handful of remote desktops to hundreds, then add and remove them as their company changes.
Many of the latest innovations in the remote working revolution have been about enabling colleagues to work together effectively from a distance. Fortunately, many of the best of these innovations are included in GoCloud’s remote desktop solutions.
GoCloud remote desktops provide users with individually administrated and universally shared access to communal assets as required, without isolating each user. As a result, clients can share work effectively and everyone can contribute their own talents, adding their independent edits without getting in each other’s way.
On the subject of fraternity and sharing, many of our clients who feel that GoCloud is one of the secrets behind their success will end up referring their own clients, or those they work with up or down the line. That means selling GoCloud starts easy and gets easier as word gets out.
