About a third of Americans are now working from home, more ever than before. And quite simply, that's due in large part because of COVID-19 and the pandemic that was unleashed across the globe this year.
In this latest VMblog #WorkFromHome Series, we're exploring what technology means in this current paradigm shift of working remotely. And in order to do that, we're reaching out to industry experts to help shine a light on the subject. We're asking these experts to offer up their opinions and advice on what's taking place now and where things go in the future.
In this Q&A, VMblog connected with industry expert, Nico Zieck, Senior IT Architect at Liquit, to get his opinion on the work from home topic and at the same time, find out more about how Liquit can help companies achieve a positive work from home shift.
It started with Wi-Fi access and boomed! Then the work life balance generation came on strong, and now COVID-19. Working remotely, although not a new concept for some of us who's role requires travel, has exploded and is now a necessity due to the recent pandemic. Companies went from an average of 80% of their workforce required to operate in an office environment (on-prem), to 100% remote in an instant. IT teams should be commended for facilitating the process so quickly with some having limited resources at their disposal. Nonetheless, the biggest challenge now is that what, companies thought would be a temporary setup is not going away anytime soon. Some Silicon Valley organizations are instructing their workers to work remotely until at least the late Fall timeframe; Google plans on keeping workers remote until as late as October of 2021 and potentially longer.
Need answers so your organization can better solve problems with migrating employees to a Work From Home format? Watch as Nico Zieck, senior IT architect at Liquit shares his expertise on a number of topics that range from virtual desktops on #Citrix, #VMware and Microsoft #WVD, to how to effectively work remotely while keeping team members productive and safe and the environment secure. Find out how Liquit solutions can help enable a work from home strategy that works.
