Flexible Working - Opinion Piece
Does flexible working mean more time with your loved ones?
Many employees that work in the financial sector operate in highly pressured environments that demand availability, mobility and collaboration. Securely pushing out applications and data to professionals that are always on the move is a challenge to many IT departments, but adopting a cooperative attitude between IT and business needs is vital to the success of any Flexible Working project.
- Mobile employees won’t necessarily require dedicated desk space so organisations are adopting a more intelligent approach to provisioning space for their employees and reducing real estate costs at the same time.
- More mobile devices: this poses both a technical challenge for IT staff and necessitates a new approach to IT service delivery that supports and enables employees to work whenever, wherever and on whatever they want – People Centric Computing.
- More time? Has the increased emphasis on collaboration and availability come at a cost to our work/life balance? In trying to work more flexibly, are we now expected to be Always On Standby?
