It's time to reimagine the way we work

Technology plays a vital role in helping us to reimagine work – and never more so than right now.

As businesses, we are all working fast – and without precedent to guide us – to adapt in the face of tremendous change. We’re all working hard to ensure we’re maintaining business continuity, staying connected with our people and our customers, wherever they may be, and staying safe as we work – differently – together.

To help you as you and your teams reimagine work in the times ahead, we’ve created this page so that we can share as many practical modern and remote workplace online resources and tools as possible with you, for you and your teams to draw on as and when you need them. We hope they are useful.

To adapt an old adage, at times like these, necessity becomes the mother of reimagination. Within the many challenges we all face today, there are opportunities for us all to look at work anew as we all navigate this new normal — where “work” really does become something we do rather than somewhere we go.

We wish you and your teams the very best at this time.

Staying connected, productive and safe
wherever you, your people and customers may be

Here we’ll share timely and useful articles, tips and insights from our experts and the wider industry on collaboration, business continuity and remote working – and any other relevant topics – to help you stay connected with your people, your customers and keep your business working.

It’s all well and good to be remote working but having a lot of people suddenly working from outside the office network presents a new set of security issues - not the least of which is the fact that our people are no longer “within the security perimeter”.

How can your organisation be prepared for these events?

Webinar: securing the new remote workforce

Securing the new remote workforce

As organisations around the world face a pandemic, businesses are quickly focusing on how to overcome serious challenges. One of these is how to enable a significant portion, if not all, of our workforce to work securely from home.

Join us for this webinar focusing on securing the new remote workforce. It will be slightly more technical in focus and relevant to those in your team tasked with securing their workforce in these new working conditions.

Webinar recordings

Keeping with the #ReimagineWork theme, we ran the "Working Remotely with Microsoft Technologies" webinar - conducted with Microsoft Teams live event - where we discussed covering remote working with Microsoft Azure Windows Virtual Desktop and communication with Microsoft Teams.

Watch the recording (and download the slides) to see how you can use Microsoft Azure technology to create and deploy Windows desktop images that run on the cloud, accessible from web browsers, Windows and MacOS clients as well as Android and iOS apps, giving your employees access to the same tools they would normally have through your physical desktop deployments.

External resources to help you #ReimagineWork

Microsoft has put together an extremely helpful resource page with more information on how technology can help your organisation with remote working, education and family, community support and more.
