ATSG Recognized as a Leader in the 2023 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for MNS >>

A few years ago, there were only a handful of businesses that were considering the notion of adopting remote work in their operations. However, the 2020 global pandemic acted as a catalyst for the ongoing massive shift towards remote work. With the rise in the popularity of remote work, the need for flexible and secure desktop solutions became increasingly vital.

Considering all the “highs and lows” that businesses have gone through in the past few years, smart business leaders have learned some valuable lessons. They know that embracing employee mobility can transform their business. They have also realized that in order to harness all the transformative powers of mobility, they need the right combination of innovative tools. For this, the modern workforce needs to be facilitated through innovative solutions, such as Cloud Desktops or Desktop as a Service (DaaS).

The Significance of Employee Mobility for Businesses

According to a survey featured in the 2015 Executive Enterprise Mobility Report by CITO Research, 67% of businesses reported that improving their processes was a key objective they hoped to achieve through the adoption of mobility solutions. As a result, mobility has evolved from a mere industry buzzword, into a critical business strategy.

The meaning of mobility might vary from person to person. However, enterprises can derive numerous universal benefits from employee mobility in their daily operations. Some of them are listed below.

  • Higher Employee Satisfaction

With mobility, employees feel a sense of freedom and liberation, as they are no longer tied to their desks or office locations. These feelings are linked with improved employee satisfaction. We say that because hybrid working environments have been reported to help employees maintain a better work-life balance. The ability to work from a comfortable and familiar environment also leads to reduced work stress and improved mental well-being. This also works well for an enterprise in the long run, especially to retain a talented pool of employees.

  • Reduction in Downtime

When employees get a chance to avoid long and exhausting daily commutes, they can focus on more productive tasks. The fact that they can tackle all time-sensitive tasks from the comfort of their living room, through DaaS Solutions, is reflected in better employee performance and reduced downtime.

  • Greater Productivity

According to a report by Forbes, improvement in employee mobility results in a 23% increase in employee productivity. Technologies facilitating employee mobility, such as Hosted Desktops, can help employees work from home (WFH), on the road, or anywhere in between; with the same level of productivity as if they were in the office.

How are Desktop as a Service (DaaS) and Employee Mobility Linked?

Gone are the days when employees were tied to a single geographic location, or office. Today, Virtual Desktop Infrastructures (VDI) allows employees to work from any location, with just an endpoint device and the internet.

The mobility of virtual desktops is a key feature of Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solutions, and it comes with un-rivaled flexibility for employees. Additionally, with hardware agnosticism and the ability to access files and applications from any device with an Internet connection, DaaS solutions are truly revolutionizing the way we work.

From the above discussion, it is quite evident that in today’s fast-paced business world, the ability to work from anywhere is crucial. DaaS offers a solution that is both cost-effective and efficient, giving enterprises a unique competitive edge in a world where mobility is a key differentiating factor for success. So, regardless of a user’s location, DaaS offers a whole new level of freedom to businesses and their employees, one that has never been witnessed before.

Conclusion

Today, employee mobility is no longer something that can be ignored by businesses. In fact, many enterprises have now inculcated it in their formal business strategy. Confining an employee to a specific department or role restricts the organization from exploring and utilizing the untapped abilities of the workforce.

Moreover, the reliable market survey also bears out that improved employee mobility leads to better productivity and efficiency. This is why many businesses opt for Cloud Desktop solutions in their operations for increased security, scalability, and reliability, that too in a cost-effective manner.
