Staying Connected to your Business

The way that business are run has changed tremendously over the last few years. Gone are the days when everyone went to the office at 9am and sat at a desk until 5pm and then went home and did it all again the next day. 

The more conventional way of running a business has given way to more technology-based practices, which allow companies to keep costs lower by not having such large offices, giving more flexibility in the type of staff they employ and hours they work as they can work remotely and not necessarily 9-5. Being more flexible with the way your business is run will allow you to have a more stress-free life and also keep your employees happy as it will give them more freedom and allow them to keep a good work/home life which will mean that hopefully, they will be more committed to the company as a whole

On top of this new technology allows people to travel whilst keeping connected. Travelling for business has witnessed a tremendous rise in the last couple of years which means that companies can happily travel further afield to expand their business not just in the UK but also abroad.

Being able to stay connected with the team and keeping them informed of what is going on and your whereabouts is more important than ever if you are travelling. Whether you are in the car, or on a plane or in a hotel there are many portable devices that allow you to do this with ease. 

If you decide to make your business more of a portable business where people can work from home, desk share or work when travelling you will need to provide them with the correct mobile technology to allow them to keep connected. It is important not to skimp pennies when providing them with the tools as you need to keep connected with them and be able to communicate wherever they are. Another important aspect is to learn to trust your staff and not micromanage them when they or you are away from the office. You need to give them the freedom to carry out their work and make them feel trusted and an important member of the team even if they or you are not in the office.
