Five signs that your team is ready to move their operations away from the office + 1 Month Free Hosting Offer

Published on 11 November, 2020 in Product News

Is your office-based team running as efficiently as it could be, or is it time for a change?

Working in an office is fun! Wearing clothes that don’t need drawstrings to stay up, watercooler gossip, and – if your company is anything like ours – a constant stream of cake in one form or another. But isn’t it time that your team catches up with the rest of the job market and takes the WFH plunge? Here are five signs that your team is ready to move their operations away from the office.

1. You’re ready to save money

If there is even a shred of doubt in your mind about whether your team’s operations categorically, undoubtedly, unquestionably MUST be done from an office, you owe it to yourself to check how much money your team could save by working remotely. The total amount that can be saved by this move is much, much higher than most of us realise. If most of your communication can take place via emails, chats and calls, both your company overheads and personal expenses could be just a click away from being drastically reduced. Office rent, Wi-Fi and utility bills, and other unconsidered preventive maintenance could vanish as well as travel expenses, morning coffees, the season’s must-have fashion trends, and toiletries (just kidding – please keep your hygiene up even if working from home). One study found that if a company allowed an employee to work from home just half of the time, it would save on average $11,000 per employee, and the employees themselves would save on average $4,000 per year. That’s a LOT of petrol.

2. You want to be like Microsoft

In October 2020, Microsoft announced that they are giving their employees the option to work from home permanently, if they so choose. With the resources of a small country behind their decisions, we can be sure that they’re making the best commercial choice for themselves and their employees. Other companies that have announced extended work-from-home options include Uber, American Express, AirBnb, Indeed and Google. Is your company better than Google? Is it?

3. You don’t want to die

What? Oh right, we’re living through a pandemic! This one is self-explanatory but what we may not have considered is that there is no sign that restrictions on group gatherings will ease up any time soon. The World Health Organisation currently recommends that we maintain a distance of 2 meters from those who do not live in our households and most types of congregations have been outright banned. This is not a temporary measure. The relevant precautions that are necessary to maintaining a safe working environment for your team are costly, time-consuming and required indefinitely. Imagine all of the masks, sanitiser, extra cleaning and empty desk space that you’ll save.

4. You want to get more work done

The stats on WFH output quality are well-documented – in May 2020 Forbes reported an incredible 47% increase in productivity from workers after they were moved to remote working set-ups. According to survey data compiled from 100 million data points across 30,000 users: the average worker started work at 8:32am and ended at 5:38pm, CRM activity was up 176%, email was up 57% and the most productive days were Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Morale as expected, has reported to have improved, while the Journal of Applied Psychology found remote workers to have more job satisfaction, less motivation to leave the company, improved work-family balance, and less stress – and the remote set-up did not negatively affect the quality of workplace relationships.

5. You don’t want to become obsolete

As the next generation of employees enters the workforce, they are automatically drawn to companies with remote and flexible working options. Adjusting to the times is a necessary move for any employer with good business acumen, and in this case that means joining the rest of the organisations that are favoured by those with this best options. The best employees will have their pick of roles, and they’re certainly going to choose the option of working from home above a traditional and slowly declining office-based environment. You’d have a much larger, and much more qualified, pool of talent to choose from.

If you decide to reap the benefits of moving your team’s operations away from the restrictive office set-up, the easiest way to go about it is to set up a cost-saving bundle of services to ensure a smooth transition. NetShop ISP provides a perfect comprehensive bundle that is completely free for one whole month (as in genuinely free – you don’t even have to enter bank details to try it out) – so you can test out the value of the move for yourself. The Work@Home Bundle consists of everything you need to get started: a static IP address so that you can access your company’s intranet, online banking and any other IP restricted portals from home; a free 3CX PBX Telephony package for internal calls, call centre features and video/chat web meetings; 500GB Cloud Backup for any type of data or device to protect against data loss, and that can be increased on request; and a dedicated OwnCloud Server for easy and secure exchange of information. The bundle is quick and easy to set-up and install, but their friendly and experienced tech and customer service teams are always available 24/7 to assist you with any queries.
