The pandemic has pushed companies to transition to remote work to aid and support physical distancing. But a study conducted in 2016 found out that there are already 57% of employees working in information systems who spent most of their time working remotely. Another study ranked IT as the second industry to embrace the virtual work step up.
With this changing work expectations, this has also led to the rise of certain challenges faced by many companies. More and more businesses are hiring IT professionals making the job market and access to experts finite. And as with law in supply and demand, the greater the need equates to higher salary (i.e. in New York, San Francisco, etc) demand which means more operational budget is allocated to ensure the best hire.
How IT Outsourcing Helps
The main contribution of outsourcing is to make opportunities for growth and help businesses succeed. To fully appreciate how outsourcing can help companies to seamlessly integrate remote work during and even after the pandemic in their operations, here are 3 top reasons:
- Business Continuity
Through the help of outsourced IT experts, you can continue your operations even if most of your employees are safe working from home. These teams will ensure any technical, technological and security concerns are addressed. In return, you can keep the business running smoothly despite the physical constraints and you can freely conceptualize business continuity plans with the help of your own IT support teams.
- Ensure Cybersecurity
Although remote work is beneficial, one downside of it is the rise of cybercrimes and the threats to cybersecurity. Without the proper security measures, cyber attacks can put an organization’s sensitive information at risk, resulting in substantial financial loss, disruption of business, and negative consumer perception.
With an outsourced IT team, they can ensure to establish information security to your organization whether on site or remotely. They are well-trained to protect systems, networks, and programs from cyber risks.
- Improve Technological Landscape
Technology growth and evolution is expected especially now that most if not all businesses are incorporating remote work set up. It is an expected outcome from this new normal. But as this technology advances, so should your business landscape. You have to have the right tools, network and system to support WFH.
But having your own IT teams will cater to these changes in technological landscapes such as cloud services and other IoT (Internet of Things) technologies. They can also improve your company’s network infrastructure and security protocols and even educate their employees about online safety.
