How to Successfully Adopt the Hybrid Workplace Model for your Company

Pulse Technology is helping organizations transition out of the pandemic by migrating them into a hybrid workplace model with the latest in today’s advanced technology solutions. As restrictions begin to loosen, small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) are looking for ways to bring staff back into the office, while simultaneously maintaining employee safety by utilizing a hybrid model that combines the best of in-person and remote work environments.

One of the most significant challenges that businesses face when attempting to accomplish this is to ensure that all staff have the appropriate technologies to navigate in-person and remote environments seamlessly. While many business owners are uncertain which technologies are the best to utilize, Pulse Technology is paving a path for SMBs to follow, so they can optimize employee productivity as the business world transitions into the next, “new normal”.

Prior to the pandemic only a small percentage of employees worked remotely. We now know that remote work environments are going to be mainstay for years to come. Necessity to adapt, consequently proved to business owners just how effective their staff could be whether in the office or working from home. In fact, according to a survey conducted by a unit of S&P Global Market Intelligence, out of 575 IT decision-makers from a range of industries, they found that “67% of respondents expect work-from- home policies will remain in place permanently or at least for the long term,” which suggests that since businesses were given no choice but to adapt, they’ve managed to survive and if they want to position themselves for success in the future, they should ensure that their technology infrastructure is robust enough to support employees ability to communicate and collaborate. Furthermore, a Gallup poll revealed that “54% of office workers would be willing to quit their job for one that allows them to work remotely.” Whether a company goes full-remote or hybrid, it’s vital that they have the right technology systems in place to support productivity and accountability.

The most important technology solution needed for any business is an ability to communicate with its customers, regardless of its employees’ physical location. Pulse Technology offers the latest communication and collaboration tools like Zulty's IP Phone Systems,employees working in or out of the office can quickly gain access and share information. Streamlining communication and increasing access to information leads to better employee productivity, employee retention, better citizen service and faster turnaround on projects. In order to fully maximize employee productivity and benefit from a hybrid model, a cloud computing solution, like Zulty's all in one IP phone system must be rapidly adopted by SMBs.

Lastly, as more employees spend time in their home offices, those environments must be secured because of the gaping lack in security that most home networks are exposed to. Far too many home offices pose security risks to the entire network because they offer little security, which cyber criminals are already exploiting. This is where a managed IT can help.
