Toshiba South Africa says that remote working in the country is on the rise with a third of South African employees working outside of their company offices.
According to Ronald Ravel, director B2B South Africa, Toshiba South Africa, companies have increased their investment in software to ensure that remote working is efficient for employees.
Ravel said that companies need to move beyond basic employee collaboration tools such as e-mail, and instead embrace a true digital workplace to drive continued productivity and competitive advantage.
“With this being said, organisations will need to transform to a digital workplace that senses and responds to the information needs of individual employees. Working remotely is becoming more common within organisations and with the arrival of cloud technologies, employees can now access company files and information securely via the cloud, it makes working from home beneficial for both employee and client.”
