Protect Your Business and Employees from COVID-19 with Remote Work Solutions
With fears of a massive coronavirus outbreak looming large, businesses around the world are scrambling to protect their offices and employees from the disease. Many companies, concerned for employees’ health amid the rapid spread of coronavirus, have begun encouraging them to work from home.
“Now is the time” for businesses to prepare for the spread of COVID-19, according to a February 25 notice from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). One way in which many employers are looking to keep workers safe is by offering or even mandating remote work. “Businesses can replace in-person meetings with video or telephone conferences and increase teleworking options,” said Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases.
Businesses ranging from Fortune 500s to startups are emptying their offices in an effort to stop the spread of disease without interrupting daily operations. Microsoft, Google, Facebook, and Apple have all urged employees to work from home if they can. Several tech firms, including Google and Cisco, have begun offering their collaboration tools for free to help bolster remote work productivity.
As companies around the world quickly implement work-from-home policies and conferences are cancelled, businesses must ensure that they are giving employees the proper tools to continue operations. Many organizations have limited capabilities when relying upon their own equipment and in-house technology recovery solutions. Developing a comprehensive business continuity plan that addresses potential disasters such as COVID-19 is important for an organization to remain resilient. Plans must consider security and must provide employees with the configured devices that meet business needs.
