COVID-19: Will we ever return to the office or is remote working the future?
COVID-19 has undoubtably changed the way we look at the world. Our old ways of life have changed as we have adapted to a new way of working. Wearing a mask on the bus has become second-nature to us now, but who would’ve imagined just 18 months ago that we would have been doing this? Who would have thought that we would have to stay 6ft away from our friends or that we would no longer be able to go to a restaurant or pub on a Friday evening after work? The pre-2020 world seems so far away, and we can’t wait to be able to see our friends again and (finally!) get out of lockdown, when it is safe to do so of-course! But what if I told you that some things might be here to stay, even when the pandemic and its lockdowns have long-since come to a long-awaited end.
Working from home was once a pipedream for many. The freedom of more flexibility and more time with our children or pets, has opened our eyes to a very new way of working. And whilst some people have been doing it for years, it has never been quite so mainstream as it is today. Many of the UK’s companies and organisations have turned to remote working to allow for social distancing measures to be implemented safely, which just couldn’t have been possible in the traditional office environment.
However, most of us aren’t used to working from home and our IT infrastructure is not up-to-scratch. It may have been working sufficiently so-far but it’s better to be safe than sorry when it come to hardware, and software for that matter, but Imagine Technology specialises in hardware and that’s where we may be able to help you! Whether you’re a business looking to make the move into remote working, you’re already operating in this way and want to make a permanent move or you are an employee of a company who was moved its operations into remote-working, Imagine Technology is here to help you with what seems like a near-impossible task.
When it comes to IT Hardware, having a trusted and reliable partner to help guide you and/or your business through technological growth and the move to a newer type of working, is vital.
