People who have made the transition to working remotely have become increasingly adjusted to their new routines and the tools that are necessary to make this possible.
According to cybersecurity firm Kaspersky, 48% of employees now make video calls with a more comfortable outfit, signaling more ease with the new way of working and communicating with colleagues.
But that doesn’t mean there won’t be anymore changes to the new normal. In fact, 2021 is expected to be a year of learning from the mistakes of the previous year, as well as tweaking and improving remote working arrangements.
For starters, the necessity of digital transformation over the past year meant companies were adopting various applications for communicating, collaborating and more.
However, this year, businesses will look towards integrating all of these tools into a single platform. Research has found that 66% of employees believe having a single-use platform would improve their workflow and productivity levels.
Additionally, improving collaboration will be essential moving forward. While it can be difficult to facilitate collaborative work in a distributed setting, technology will play a crucial role in ensuring employees stay on the same page and balance their workloads.
