The new workplace:

reimagining working life

in 2021 and beyond

CISOs and CIOs are under pressure to rapidly implement and enable flexible & remote working for their workforce.

Millions of people throughout the country are now working remotely. For some, this new way of working comes as a welcome relief; no more commuting, less distractions, and a noticeably improved work life balance. For others, however, this overnight shift to remote working has caused constraints for their day to day routine and work life balance.

Many companies, across all sectors, had not implemented flexible or remote working strategies and have therefore had to rapidly put in place new measures for their workforces. As a result, it has placed a lot of pressure on CIOs and CISOs, who have been had to make this happen quickly and securely across complex digital infrastructures. This fundamental shift in how people work has also led to challenges for businesses where a business’ survival can depend on its ability and speed to adapt and evolve during this time.

Given the current backdrop of COVID-19, this has made many businesses and employees reflect on not only how we need to work now but also what the future holds and question what their industry will ultimately look like. What do those industries do if working from home isn’t a capability of the business?
