REMOTE WORK

In the last few weeks, we have fielded an unprecedented number of clients' requests for assistance with their employees who are now working from home due to the COVID-19 Corona Virus crisis.

We at Sirinc have extensive experience in working with remote workers.  As some of you know, many of our workers are located in different states and time zones. 

 

We have implemented specific tools and protocols for assisting our remote workers with their productivity while working at home while continuing to adhere to our company wide security standards.  We have also standardized on remote VOIP telephone communication and consistent Microsoft Teams daily meetings using our company wide secure chat and file sharing.

All of these solutions have helped us to provide a better experience for our clients regardless of where our workers are located.  

 

From a technology, security and productivity standpoint, having a remote workforce can be a difficult challenge for many companies.

Some of those challenges include:

  • Slow home internet speeds

  • Home consumer router security

  • Poor wi-fi connectivity

  • Lack of a company phone system (non VOIP systems)

  • Home computers without proper anti-virus / anti-malware software

  • A mixture of BYOD consumer computers & personal unsecured email + insecure home cloud services

With most of our clients now changing from some workers to most of their workers working from home, all of these challenges listed above have created a deluge of issues and headaches for businesses.

While some of our clients have been more prepared than others, we have been addressing many of these remote work issues by implementing our best practice solutions.
