As we come to terms with following a global pandemic, the working from the home situation now seems to be under the spotlight. The key aim for organisations has always been employee safety and well-being, ensuring minimal impact on the end-users and customers. However, as businesses begin to move back to some office working environment, more enabling and collaborative products are required.
ERP services have enabled us to work from home with uninterrupted access to information without having to be in the workplace, allowing us to collaborate much more effectively.
When there is change, there are always positive and negative impacts on any organisation. Businesses have had to face challenges; working from home has enabled firms to continue to meet customer demands and ensure that everyone has access to the same information from an organisational perspective.
The Added advantage for employees has been to save time; not having to travel has given us more time to be productive and focus on tasks. A disadvantage of not being in the office has meant people are not having access to other people, which has potentially stifled innovation. Lesser human interaction means employees become less active.
The office environment enables more innovative and more thorough solutions by getting input from a broader colleague base.
