Stone Group - Providing digital transformation solutions to organisations across the UK.

Remote Working is a phrase we’ve heard enough this year to know is all about bringing your people, processes, connectivity and technology together, regardless of location. Be this with laptops to help employees adopt flexible working practices, or even desktop PCs, monitors and accessories to curate more permanent remote working environments.

According to statistics, in 2019, only 30% of the UK workforce experienced some form of home working, with less than 18% working from home on a regular basis. This statistic alone shows how unprepared businesses were for this figure to be sent through the roof in 2020, and as a result many businesses were left to provide employees with technology that was available and perhaps not fully fit for purpose.

When you also consider research showing that  nearly three quarters of UK businesses plan to adopt more flexible working practices moving forwards, its clear to see hybrid working is here to stay. So how do you know if your business is making the most out of this new trend, and has the right technologies in place to work done?

Business Flexibility

This has been one of the main benefits that businesses and employees alike have seen to come from COVID-19. Various lockdowns have shown us that with the right technologies in place, many organisations can still run at the same level of efficiency, even when their workforce is working remotely. It has also given millions of previously office-based employees the opportunity to experience the benefits of flexible working, for their personal well-being and workplace productivity.

DID YOU KNOW: Flexible working also benefits businesses, reducing employee absences, saving on costs and improving retention?

Adopting an agile approach

It’s important to have the technology that helps you work with true agility, and that is where Stone Acer can help, by creating a complete workspace and support solution that’s as agile and productive as you are.
