Make Working From Home Work For You


Summary of RingCentral's Digital Boardoom - Thursday 16th April 2020

Key findings/questions from previous Working From Home discussions

  1. How do we enable people to work safely on their day to day tasks with the technology required, remain in touch, keep them engaged, maintain standards of health and safety, learn more about them and help them through this difficult time period, while also gauging if some form of remote working could be viable in the future?

  2. How can you work with more agility and quickness to manage your systems remotely?

  3. With the downturn of the economy, how can organisations adapt their processes, strategies and priorities to remain intact and survive?

  4. As more people go online in different ways, how can we consolidate these multiple identities and improve cloud security as more information becomes available?

  5. With usage of technology increasing, how do we make the big decisions quicker and with more confidence?


Do any of these points resonate with your organisation?

After several weeks of lockdown most organisations are in a good position technologically speaking allowing staff to work as best they can in the circumstances. Much focus now is being placed on understanding the technology, utilising the cloud, educating staff to the tools, collaborative and communication, available to them, some of which have been available for some time, ensuring security and keeping morale high.


The outbreak has caused many organisations to work differently, consider strategies and redistribute staff and funds to stay on track. Others who had previously had little to no digital presence are now being encouraged or forced to explore their capabilities as consumer habits are changing. 


All in all though, it is believed that the work being done now will result in stronger organisations in the future, giving staff more autonomy dependent on productivity, having better confidence in the technology and processes and potentially reducing carbon footprints as remote working becomes more common.


Attendee concern- How can we assist employees who struggle with low bandwidth speeds due to higher usage or areas of low connectivity?

Understanding which employees require more hands on assistance can be achieved through education. Using detechnified advice can help many people improve speeds, such 
as turning off videos while chatting and moving closer to the hub. Eliminating these options can help identify who requires further assistance.


Attendee concern- Short term gain leading to long term loss

During unsure times many organisations are being forced to make tactical decisions against what is required for success in the long term. And so businesses must be mindful rather than make knee jerk reactions.


Also, while working from home has become easier, many concerns post outbreak will surround technical debts and the issues of open data as people work in different locations for potentially longer hours while at home.
