We all are witnessing a never-before crisis that has severely affected all the countries and continents. The COVID-19 virus has put the world on ‘pause’ mode and caused radical changes in everything including every sector and every life. Businesses and industries are forced to change their working models to remain operative in this coronavirus outbreak.
Along with travel and transportation restrictions, governments implemented social distancing to minimize the virus spread. Countries entered in lockdown mode and people are turning to digital to normalize their lifestyles from education to entertainment and from shopping to working from home.
Organizations with a Digital-First Strategy are now able to operate by adopting a virtual environment while those who are yet to transform their businesses, facing financial and operational challenges.
Digitization has become savior amidst this crisis with its various ways that help people collaborate, work, remain social, and perform business operations.
One thing is clear that digital transformation has proven its significance to handle such a worldwide pandemic by playing a crucial role in communication and business operations. Thanks to technologies like cloud and other collaborative tools, hiring remote teams to build digital presence becomes a trendsetter. Leveraging global talents with diverse skillsets to achieve digital goals is proven lucrative, cost-effective, and hassle-free.
Let’s understand what remote team is and how it is helping companies in such situations.
A remote team includes team members who are committed to a common organizational goal and have their own set of objectives to be fulfilled as per their skills.
Members or employees are not geographically co-located and can work from home or in different locations. There is a need for constant collaboration and timely reporting to get the desired result without any hassle.
Outsourcing your project idea to dedicated remote development teams also helps you lessen the burden of management, allowing you to focus on business enhancement.
The team may include Consultants, Architects, Designers, Developers, QA professionals, and Continuous Change Experts – all are dedicated to transforming your idea to reality.
As more and more global talents are being hired for different skillsets and companies are employing flexible work programs, the remote working environment is bearing the fruit of productivity, efficiency, and flexibility.
Due to flexibility and work-life balance, employees across the world prefer remote working to focus on work as well as their lives.
While the advantages of remote work differ from person-to-person, cons are also there.
Effective and optimum use of communicative technologies plays a key role in remote team management.
Amid this coronavirus pandemic, we have successfully adopted the early WFH environment to make sure we follow every possible measure to prevent the virus from spreading further.
To keep our commitment of service intact, our infra team has walked the extra mile to establish a VPN (Virtual Private Network) to easily access and work through the same office machines. This indicates our strict adherence to security guidelines in the time when all employees are working remotely.
It is quite obvious that working remotely increases the chances of data breaches and security violations. Allowing VPN access, rather than personal PCs/laptops will keep our ‘Security Is A Priority’ strategy at the center.
While no one knows when will this end and when will we be able to get back to normal, working remotely seems the only possible option to keep our business running. In the middle of this uncertainty, one thing is certain, and that is our uninterrupted, quality, and timely services to our clients across the world. We appreciate your support and our employees’ spirits to get the wheels moving.
