Remote working during the Coronavirus
As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread in Massachusetts, more and more businesses are preparing strategies to keep their employees safe while staying productive. The CDC recommends "that you have the technology and infrastructure needed to support multiple employees who may be able to work from home."
We have put together some tips to help organizations prepare for an increase in employees working from home:
1. MAKE SURE YOUR EMPLOYEES CAN CONNECT.
If they have a slow connection speed at home, you may want to consider providing them with a mobile hotspot.
2. VIRTUAL PRIVATE NETWORKS: CREATING A SAFE FOUNDATION FOR REMOTE DIGITAL ACCESS
When you need to connect remotely to your corporate network, you’ll want to make sure you have secure access to your company’s VPN. For an added boost of security, companies may want to consider a two-factor authentication solution (2FA), such as Microsoft Authenticator.
3. COLLABORATION TOOLS SOLUTIONS
There are many video conferencing platforms available that are geared to tackle the challenges of connecting people. Zoom, Cisco WebEx, Microsoft Teams and Polycom are some of our favorites.
4. BRING HOME ALL OF YOUR WORK ACCESSORIES
Don’t forget everything you use with your computer: headset, mouse, charging cord, USB cords, etc. Making sure you have your tools will make for a smoother transition while telecommuting.
