Throughout the winter in the northern part of the country, thousands of workers face a dilemma – face the dangerous road conditions to get to the office, or use up sick and personal days to stay at home. For workers with children, the dilemma can be even worse – if childcare or school is cancelled for weather, or the children are sick, the weight swings further toward staying home and using that time off. Besides being a problem for the employees, the time off and inefficiency is of course a big issue for the employer as well.
Luckily, in today’s workplace there is another option. When a company uses cloud applications, their employees can access their work (and the company records) from home – or wherever they are, provided they have a computer & internet access. Allowing your employees to work from home means that your business doesn’t suffer during the winter – from inclement weather or illness. Don’t let your business’ efficiency take a nosedive in winter – use the cloud to give your employees the flexibility they need to do their jobs.
