3 reasons why mobile working matters

You can’t stop it – embrace it!

Do you work in an office? In the physical headquarters of your company?

Or perhaps you don’t actually remember the last time you sat at your desk. Cafes, airports, train stations, client meeting rooms or simply your own homes are becoming common places to do the job.

It’s not a fad. New way of working is here to stay. It’s not tomorrow – it’s today!

  1. It is a part of enterprise digital transformation 

Business as usual is safe: familiar processes, tested technology and ways of collaborating. Pushing outside of comfort zone is never easy. But there is no hiding from what’s already became workers day-to-day life. And businesses one by one are starting to embrace the change.

“Given the rapid shift in work habits, it’s no surprise that the latest data shows substantial growth in mobility interest and adoption within the enterprise.”

  1. Mobile work is productive and collaborative

Physical location and face-to-face interactions create illusions of business efficiency. But is it true? How to attract and keep talent, improve workflow and bring costs down? Most importantly how to operate with remote and geographically dispersed teams? Perhaps accepting mobile reality is an answer?

“The world is heading in a direction where professional collaboration will be most successfully hosted in a digital environment.”

  1. You cannot stop the rise of mobile workers, tech savvy millennials and freedom of device

Today’s generations of professionals are hard to tame. Young employees are digital natives who never experienced technological revolution at work. They’ve entered professional lives with ‘digital first’ mindsets. They assumed that mobile gadgets, apps and multi-device work are common standards. And they demand flexibility and BYOD (bring your own device) policies refusing sedentary business 9-5 working patterns.

“From 2014 to 2015 Citrix saw its customers give a 255% increase in mobile users provisioned per company, enabling employees to make their own choices about the software and hardware they use for work through BYOD.”
