Growing Your Business by Modernising the Workplace
Acknowledging the Disadvantages
Data Trust and Security Management
Data leak and privacy breach are two of the things that can easily ruin a client’s trust. And losing a client’s trust is a sure-fire way to lose their business too. But a lot of companies weren’t prepared for a global health catastrophe and didn’t have a strong enough security system already in place before businesses were forced to allow employees to work remotely.
Therefore, 54% of IT professionals think that remote workers pose a great security risk . And they have all the right to think so. After all, no one would be there to oversee how employees treat company and customer data when no one is looking. On top of your employees’ integrity getting tested, IT teams also worry about the ones who take advantage of weak security systems for a living.
Creating strong, real ties between employees and employers, and improving their work environment are some of the ways that motivate them and increase their productivity. These encourage employees to be innovative and collaborate better.
Creating a system of shared values and attitudes leads to strong company culture. Strong company culture leads to happy employees and better employee retention, growth, and reputation. When you have happy employees, you also have happy customers.
Change is scary, but knowing what your desired organisational culture looks like isn’t enough. Plans must be created to ensure that the desired organisational culture becomes a reality. The two vital things for creating cultural change are executive support and training.
The Future of the New Normal
The COVID-19 pandemic has been around for more than a year now, and no one can tell when it will be over, or if it will be over. The global economy took a major blow when businesses of all sizes had to close and stop operations because of the pandemic. And for our businesses to survive this global set back, we can’t keep doing the things we only know and feel comfortable in. We need to get out of our comfort zone, learn, adapt, and modernise our workplaces so we can empower our modern workers and continuously grow our business.
