Remote working has been a cross-industry standard for almost a year now, and that’s unlikely to change in the near future even if the COVID-19 pandemic comes to an unexpectedly graceful end. Many professionals wanted to work from home years before lockdowns were put into place, reasoning that ever-improving internet infrastructure coupled with the computer-based nature of modern offices meant that they really didn’t need to be commuting regularly.
This shift may have been forced upon us, but the results have made one thing very clear: those professionals were exactly right. Most businesses can carry on largely unaffected using the remote-working model. That doesn’t mean that they do, though: not yet, at least. A year isn’t enough to make everyone an expert at navigating distance working, and there are still plenty of companies — of all shapes and sizes — struggling with productivity.
To overcome this hurdle, they need to do various things: invest in home office equipment, for instance, and focus on mental health. In this piece, though, we’re going to concentrate on the key to remote-working productivity: cloud tech. Why is it so important? Let’s get into it.
