Is your company prepared for the home office?
The pandemic took everyone by surprise, changed habits, hindered our daily lives, but also showed new paths and possibilities, and the home office is one of them. A less costly way for companies, but also more comfortable for the team. The home office is definitely here to stay. But is your company prepared to operate in this modality?
Leaving the comfort zone is not always pleasant. But being obliged to do so, and without notice, makes this change even more difficult. It was and is being so, for companies and professionals, with the pandemic of COVID-19. Naturally, now, in February 2021, things are less impactful, everyone is getting better organized and is more used to the so-called “new normal”.
And that means that now we are getting used to having smaller and smaller corporate spaces, partially or totally remote staff, video call meetings, cloud e-mails, corporate drives, schedules and tasks shared by several real-time software and gits / repositories being used constantly by several users, are good examples of this new reality.
On the part of managers, being able to adapt the company to remote work has been the biggest challenge. That’s because this whole scenario that we mentioned earlier, was not prepared, and may actually not even be ready yet. Many mistakes are being made due to the adaptation to the new normal. Leaving the classroom required sacrifices that managers were forced to make, such as allowing team members to start using emails and personal drives, as professional accounts were linked to the company’s machine, making it impossible to access any other device. or platform. Regardless of whether it is Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo or Outlook, the use of personal emails in this situation must be strictly emergency, and corrected as soon as possible. As well as using personal drivers instead of corporate drivers, whether they are Dropbox, Google Drive or One Drive.
Two factors turn this situation into a state of high alert, and they are:
2) secrecy / confidentiality
The backup becomes a burden for the project manager, who, even delegating the team to execute it, will have a giant problem to deal with in the very near future, because the backups will be individual, created by each team member, and join this database in a single file will be really challenging.
Another crucial point is the issue of secrecy and confidentiality which, with the departure of the company’s controlled environment, sets precedents for possible leaks. This is not synonymous with the leakage of sensitive data, but it opens up a huge possibility that it will happen, even if unintentionally, as the amount of connections and users exchanging company information for different networks and devices, significantly increases the risk invasion or interception of data.
An opportunity proves to be ideal for this scenario: cloud computing, or cloud computing. It is the best resource for teams working in the home office. The utopia would also be the availability of two environments, one for production and the other for development. Regardless of whether the team is internal or composed of outsourced / freelancers, the unification of the tools together with the cloud e-mails, will provide the resumption of the lost safe environment with the presence of the company structure, adding yet agility and convenience to the operation.
