In 2020, the world was thrown into a remote working environment with limited time to adequately prepare. Now, many of us are considering a new ‘work from anywhere’ approach which incorporates both remote and office-based working. With the future of technology in the workplace shaping up to allow staff to work entirely away from the office, learn how you can change your organisation to be ahead of the curve with our whitepaper.

Not only will work be done ‘anywhere’ in the future, but the service and technologies that enterprises need to be adopting like video and collaboration, and the importance of securing those services in the cloud, will continue to grow in importance to enable this shift.

Our latest whitepaper, in collaboration with Cavell Group, takes you through market research on the trends that organisations need to be aware of and how to future-proof your communications stack.


Since its first popularisation with the 2020 pandemic, remote working has become increasingly more commonplace. Now, the future of technology in the workplace and continuing technological advancements will not only make working from home more prevalent – it will be easily accommodated by organisations for efficient working.

With the lack of an immediate necessity for remote working, why is it still so regularly seen? Below are some benefits of remote working that continue to make it a popular option:

  • Flexibility: Remote working offers flexibility in terms of work location and hours. Employees can work from anywhere, allowing for a better work-life balance and the ability to customise their schedules to fit personal needs or responsibilities.
  • Increased productivity: Many studies have shown that remote workers can be more productive than their office-based counterparts. Remote work eliminates common workplace distractions and interruptions, allowing employees to focus and complete tasks more efficiently.
  • Cost-savings: Both businesses and employees can experience cost savings with remote work. Businesses can reduce expenses related to office space, utilities and equipment, while employees save on commuting costs, meals and work attire.


To adapt your business to the future of technology in the workplace in relation to remote working, consider implementing the following strategies:

  • Embrace digital collaboration tools: Invest in robust digital collaboration tools such as project management software, video conferencing platforms and messaging apps. These tools facilitate seamless communication, collaboration and project management among remote teams.
  • Enhance data security: Strengthen data security protocols to protect sensitive information in a remote work environment. Implement secure VPN access, two-factor authentication and regular security training to educate employees about best practices for protecting company data.
  • Evaluate infrastructure and connectivity: Ensure that you and your employees have access to reliable internet connectivity and the necessary hardware or equipment to perform their roles effectively. 

By embracing remote working and implementing these strategies, you can adapt your organisation to the changing landscape, maximise productivity, and retain a competitive edge in an increasingly remote work-oriented world.
