If the best part of your weekend is not having to commute, you might want to let the Cloud help with that.
Most people look forward to the weekend as a break from the working week, but if your sole reason for being happy about the weekend is not having to commute then it is time to make a change.
For some people the commute adds almost half of an additional working day on top of the working day that they have already completed. Of course, this leaves very little time at all for them to do anything else during the week and for people who have young children this is particularly difficult.
But what makes it doubly frustrating is that many types of jobs now really require no commuting at all. With a little investment in cloud infrastructure, a large percentage of work can be done directly from home. This would not only improve the lives of the people who no longer had to commute but would also lower overall levels of commuting, making life more pleasant for those who still have to do it.
Here’s some great reasons why your firm (or your employer) should convert to “cloud commuting”:
Find experts: Any business can benefit greatly from expert input from mentors, collaborators, and people with specialist knowledge. However, often these people are a long way away from the business and unavailable to assist fully or unable to commute. The Cloud allows people to work closely with a business and access the same IT system as them so that they are able to provide the best possible advice.
Save money: A lot of back office functions don’t have to be done in-house, or even by someone in the same country. Outsourcing can save a business a huge amount of money in terms of not having to hire people to cover sick leave or holidays. The cloud has made outsourcing a reality for even the smallest business.
Empower employees: Allow them to take back control of their working week. They will appreciate the freedom that working in the cloud provides and you are almost guaranteed to see a boost in their productivity.
