Everything from the apps you use to the devices you use them on can impact productivity.
Here’s how to get it right.
Whether at the office or working from anywhere, a cumbersome work environment breeds inefficiency.

The result is something no small-business owner can afford: Lost time and missed opportunities.
From the physical workplace to the tools that help them accomplish their goals, small businesses thrive when employees have digital workspaces that are flexible, reliable, and allow them to do their best work securely. Employees want a work environment that alleviates redundancies and helps them concentrate on what really matters—capitalizing on their core competencies.

No matter what industry your small business is in, here are tips for creating a digital workspace that empowers employees to be as productive as possible wherever they’re doing work.
1.

Be Consistent

To get employees on board with a hybrid work environment, it helps to have a single technology platform that allows them to be productive in or out of the office. When your tools and process are consistent between environments, employees can establish productive behaviors and habits no matter where they work.

Avoid time-wasting distractions

Less time toggling between apps and trying to figure out new tools, means having more time to be productive. Keeping company apps, data, and desktops in a centralized, cloud-based virtual environment allows employees to enjoy a single experience across any device. And with a single sign on, employees only require one password for access to all their work apps.

Keep data and devices secure

Using different devices in different locations means security needs to be a top priority. Small-business leaders should consider built-in machine learning and analytics that measure end-user behavior to alert you before a security issue becomes a problem.

Automate whenever possible

Workplace tech should automate tasks to help employees save time, keep them on track with automatic notifications, and more. For IT professionals, automating manual tasks and enabling them to have an all-encompassing view of what is going on at your company can be a game-changer.

Enable seamless collaboration

With employees scattered across multiple locations, utilizing a single platform allows everyone to communicate and share files in a single place without the need for clunky email or third-party file-sharing services.
