The coronavirus pandemic has changed how we live and work, most likely forever, so if your company went remote last year during lockdown, you may only just be getting back into the office. If this is the case, there are some things you need to consider to get your office IT ready.
Limit tech sharing
If you want to ensure that your office staff are safe and are able to maintain social distancing while they work, it is imperative that you have enough IT available so that employees do not have to share technology, which could easily spread germs. If you need to, it may be wise to invest in more computers, printers and other office technology so that your employees can easily keep apart and access IT quickly.
Switch to a paperless office
Germs can travel fast on paper that a lot of people have to touch. If you can, you should consider completing tasks online without the use of paper unless completely necessary. Not only will this benefit the environment, but it will also ensure that germs aren’t passed from person to person via paper. In order to create a more paperless environment, you need to make sure that your IT is up to date.
Ensure your WiFi can handle telecommunications
As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, offices have had to turn to video conferencing in order to communicate with their employees. However, although people may now be able to return to the office, it is imperative that your WiFi can handle video conferencing and other video calls, in case some people are unable to return and have to work from home.
