The Hybrid Office – How to be Prepared with RemotePC

Since COVID-19 changed our lives drastically in 2020, workers around the world have settled into working remotely from the comfort of their homes or setting of their choice to avoid catching or spreading the virus. This has led to many questions going into 2021 for businesses who have to decide the best way to move forward, acknowledging the fact that many employees probably won’t be comfortable coming back to a full-time, in-office schedule as soon as things open up.

In fact, a survey in May by Stanford University concluded that 55% of US workers would prefer a mix of home and office working. This is what’s becoming known as the “Hybrid Office,” providing employees with the sociability and structure of going to the office, along with the flexibility and independence of being able to work from wherever is best for them. This will also help avoid crowded office spaces while society recovers from the pandemic in 2021.

Apart from the physical aspect of keeping their employees healthy, steps also need to be taken by companies to provide their employees with the tools they need to be efficient and successful working from home. 

This is where a remote access service like RemotePC comes in. By enabling employees to access their work computers through any personal device including macs, PCs, or even Android and iOS devices, RemotePC allows users to have access to everything they need on their office network, making it simple to work from anywhere they choose.

RemotePC is the perfect solution for companies looking to provide their employees with fast, secure remote access, including features such as:
