Sydney, 9th March 2020 – With an increase in the number of people working remotely due to office or school closures, self-imposed quarantine or travel restrictions, CIOs, business leaders and managers are evaluating business continuity plans and their remote working procedures.
As well as securing hardware for access away from the office, or providing support for mobile workers and their devices, another major concern is how well users themselves are prepared for remote working.
“Do they know how to effectively communicate and collaborate away from an office environment with no water cooler chats? Are they sharing files securely? If a user has never worked from home before, how can they be sufficiently upskilled with minimal downtime? These are just a few of the questions we’ve been asking our partners and clients this week as we all navigate a potential unknown” says Ronnie Altit, CEO of Insentra, a global collaborative IT services business from Sydney.
“In a traditional scenario, training and adoption programs would be implemented to enable users with the skills to leverage collaboration technologies, but in response to a crisis or, in this case a potential pandemic, users need rapid on-the-job learning or upskilling which can be scaled depending on their function or persona” said Altit. “One of the solutions we are recommending is Nulia Works, which monitors how users are working within Microsoft Office 365 and presents them with various skills and outcomes to develop based on the functionality and tools they are using, as well as how they collaborate and communicate.”
