Critical Technology Capabilities to Overcome Flexible Work Policy Challenges

In 2020, many organizations spun up new technologies and rolled out new processes to enable their employees to stay connected and productive while working remotely for what they thought was a finite period of time. Now, however, both employers and employees are realizing the benefits that a distributed workforce model, with people working in multiple locations such their homes, offices and other remote locations, can deliver.

  • 90% of employees feel the flexibility that distributed workforce models deliver boosts morale.

Organizations are struggling with:

  • Fragmented or insufficient security
  • Operational complexity
  • Poor employee experience
