Embracing the Art of Remote Working

Technology has always connected us, and now it’s more important than ever. As we navigate the changing landscape of work, First Technology, a Dell Technologies Titanium partner, strives to deliver solutions that keep you and your employees safe. We have always been committed to exploring and studying the future landscape of business and adapting to the inevitable change it will bring.

Let’s take a look at the benefits of adopting a remote working strategy so that your business can thrive in the new digital era.


This is Part 3 of a three-blog series where we will be exploring the topic of Workforce Transformation and how First Technology can aid you in this endeavour.



Benefits of Remote Working


Greater employee satisfaction


An online survey found that over 40% of employees would agree to a salary cut if it resulted in more flexible work options. Those aged between 18 - 34, a demographic with a notably high unemployment rate, said in the survey that they would take up to a staggering 10% salary cut to have access to flexible telecommuting options.


Additionally, remote workers are 13% more likely to stay in their professional roles longer than onsite workers, and 45% of remote workers say they love their job, compared to a meagre 24% of onsite workers. It’s clear that telecommuters enjoy a considerably higher level of job satisfaction, leading to them approaching their jobs with greater passion and creativity.



A cleaner future is a better future


With our range of digital workspace solutions, you will save up to 25% on the seemingly bottomless pit of PC lifecycle costs while considerably decreasing your impact on the environment.


This is no empty boast. Dell Technologies has received the Gold Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for their recycling program and has been recognised by the Ethisphere Institute as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies. Together, Dell Technologies and First Technology are actively changing the very nature of modern workforces.



Lower expenses


Companies that adopt remote working solutions have significantly lower business expenses and, if equipped with the digital workspaces, suffer little to no disruption in company structure and operations. No more money will be spent on unnecessary office space, equipment, utility bills or travel reimbursement. Depending on the size of your workforce, that could lead to an immense reduction in business expenses without compromising the ability to generate income.



Reduced Health Risk


Enabling a remote workforce allows you to help keep your employees, communities and customers healthy and safe in these uncertain times. Beyond the fact that you’ll get sick a lot less as you are exposed to less germs, remote working also has a string of proven health benefits such as healthier eating patterns, better sleep cycles and lower stress levels. Well over half of our global team works remotely, so we can offer you the know-how to implement your own flexible digital workplace.



Access to a Global Network


Taking a digital workforce approach removes all geographic boundaries, giving you access to a global pool of candidates, clients and partners, which, in turn, also cultivates a more diverse workforce. From posting job openings to receiving job applications and conducting interviews, hiring managers can select, screen and evaluate candidates in an entirely virtual environment. With this recruiting approach, you can prioritise aptitude and widen your hiring net, which allows you to swiftly and efficiently mitigate skills gaps. This means you can shift greater focus to business innovation and evolution.



Next Level Remote Working


Around 60% of organisations admit to requiring support from external partners to implement and maintain innovative workplace technology such as remote working solutions. Dell Technologies provides the most advanced, secure and intelligent devices that empower and inspire users. Our cutting-edge automation tools will liberate your IT staff from menial operations and significantly lower company expenses.
