Diagnosis: 40 years of gainful employment with a 40 hours week, 5 of 7 days with the classic presence culture of 9-to-5. The horror image that most students experience towards the end of their studies. Fortunately, these outdated work structures are being adapted step by step to today’s possibilities through digitization and globalization.
The employees of today’s companies can do their work from any location with the help of mobile devices (e.g. laptop, tablet or smartphone) via the Internet, independent of fixed working hours and fixed workplaces.
This means that long waiting times such as business trips by train or plane can be optimally used for work.
The evolution from the home office to the everywhere-office has clear advantages: balanced work-life balance, job satisfaction, health, employer attractiveness, equal opportunities, increased efficiency, increased personal freedom and self-determined time management, which makes it possible to reconcile work and contact lens pick-up before 6 p.m. at the optician.
According to current statistics, 40% of German companies are already using home office facilities, and the trend is rising. A special example is the company Komoot from Potsdam. Accessibility to the core working time between 10 and 15 o’clock as well as regular meetings are fixed rules. Otherwise, there are no local restrictions and no fixed working hours. Also the company Gitlab from the USA completely renounces offices.
But although there are many advantages of the Everywhere office, a few hurdles have to be overcome.
IT security, working time documentation in the sense of the employer, but also of the employee and misuse of the IT infrastructure are still some of the challenges that companies must take into account when switching to working from anywhere.
We can support you with Mobivisor.
Probably the greatest risk in mobile work is the loss/robbery of the end device and thus the unintentional passing on of important, confidential company information. By locking the end device and securing the company data via a central administration as well as localization, we can tackle the problem with MobiVisor and ensure additional security. Also the adherence to working hours on mobile devices, which could otherwise entice the employee to constant work, can be limited with MobiVisor. In addition, MobiVisor makes setting up new workstations child’s play for any administrator.
Working conditions should not be tolerated simply because it is said to have always been the case. In fact, labour can be adapted for the individual and the enterprise.
The future is called mobile working and we offer assistance with Mobivisor.
