Why Are Some Companies So Resistant to Remote Work?

Remote work has become the new normal across many different industries, but numerous businesses are still hesitant to embrace remote work. Many businesses now working remotely are planning their employees’ upcoming return to physical office spaces.

Research shows that businesses can save money and increase their employees’ well-being by switching to remote work, so why are businesses hesitant to make the switch? In this article, we’ll discuss common difficulties that businesses experience when transitioning to remote work. While working remotely can be highly beneficial to employees and businesses, a poorly planned transition can lead to logistical and security issues.

Common Challenges

Without moving to the right platforms and solutions, organizations will find it increasingly challenging to provide remote work services to their teams effectively. Challenges such as, difficulty delivering a consistent user experience, uninterrupted access to applications and data, device management, as well as issues with scalability and resources.

These challenges are nearly universal, yet difficult to solve with a traditional IT infrastructure. Organizations need a secure solution for employees to access their systems, that delivers a higher-quality experience on any device without relying on a central office location.
