A mobile way of working
Can you remember a time whereby you sat on a train without a mobile phone? Without checking your emails or communicating with your colleagues and friends via Facebook and Twitter? Technology has advanced dramatically over the last decade and as a consequence has had a huge impact on the way we work; Gone are the 9-5 days at the office which have instead been replaced by more flexible working patterns including the hours we work and from where.
The move from on-premise solutions to cloud technology has been a significant enabler when it comes to flexible working. Employees can now access their business applications from a web browser which has opened up a whole new world when it comes to the way we work. We can work anytime, anywhere and are no longer restricted to the office and set working hours. And we mustn’t forget that flexible working holds a whole range of benefits for businesses and employees alike.
XCD HR is a cloud-based solution which helps businesses to cut their HR workload by automating processes and providing all the information you need about their teams at the touch of a button. No matter where you are you can access your system quickly and easily and from any device. But we also practice what we preach…We work flexibly with some of our workforce based from our Head Quarters, but others who work from home and across the globe.
According to a survey of businesses across Europe, flexible working makes employees 39 percent more productive and the fact of the matter is, the climate of work is genuinely shifting to a more fluid, on-the-go style. Therefore, businesses need to embrace this notion as technology and working practices continue to evolve.
