As we enter 2022 and mark the third year since Covid-19 changed our lives, it’s becoming obvious that hybrid working is here to stay.
With business professionals now sharing their time between physical offices, home and other remote sites, their choice of end user device is no longer a hit-and-miss affair – today, the device has to enable the best possible connectivity, collaboration and productivity.
Indeed, endpoint devices now have to ensure that the employee has the same experience regardless of where they are. At the same time, CIOs need to ensure these devices are secure and managed.
With more than 70% of employees set to work remotely, research shows that employers are going to increase their spending on virtual collaboration tools and manager training.
Mobility as we knew it two years ago – being able to work as long as there is a decent WiFi connection – is no longer good enough for these hybrid workers. Today, micromobility means that workers need to move seamlessly from home to office and back again, with any place in the home doing service as a workspace.
Today, the device the people use to work is most likely also the device they use for their leisure and entertainment, so it needs to offer them the best of both worlds.
