Enabling A Remote Workforce

Enabling a remote workforce isn’t just about knowing how to run a meeting virtually, it’s about having the right tools, knowing how to use them, and understanding the needs of the different remote worker profiles.
The Profiles
Each remote worker will need different technology depending on their role in your organization.
A general remote worker or an office worker who is now remote may work at full capacity with just their work laptop and the camera that is built into it. However, some remote workers are discovering the need to create a more professional remote presence especially when dealing with partners and customers.
The mobile worker is constantly on the move. Enabling these users with the right platform as well as mobile headsets and quick setup webcams is critical to keeping these users connected to the rest of the workforce.
A remote worker typically spends most of their time at a desk in their home office. Enabling these users with the appropriate cameras, headsets, and speaker phones is essential to maintaining a professional presence at home.
The executive typically has a loaded schedule and is expected to show up to internal, partner, and customer meetings with the highest quality presence possible. High quality audio and video technology is a must for these users.
While it is important that all remote workers have at least some level of chat enabled remote presence, there is a trend to ensure companies are enabling a highly professional remote workforce. There are a variety of cost effective solutions to improve quality without breaking the bank.
