Research shows businesses are increasingly moving to more remote and flexible workforces. According to Gartner, nearly a quarter of CFOs said they will move at least 20% of their on-site employees to permanent remote positions. But as workforces go remote, ensuring the right collaborative technology and security remain top of mind for executives. PwC’s COVID-19 CFO pulse survey reveals close to half of executives anticipate that a lack of remote work capabilities will lead to productivity loss, and 19% expect insufficient staffing to result in an inability to accomplish critical work.
“While many companies viewed it as a short-term response to the COVID-19 pandemic, an increasing number are realizing that remote work must be part of their long-term plans, as it will enable them to attract the talent they need to operate in the unpredictable business environment we’ll be functioning in for the foreseeable future,” said
With the Upwork Talent Solution with Citrix Workspace, businesses can efficiently and effectively integrate remote independent professionals with quick access to company tools and resources from anywhere and to any device, all while meeting rigorous security requirements.
“Against a backdrop of unprecedented and rapid change in the workforce, this quickly evolving shift to remote work is accelerating the cultural workforce trend that was already in motion,” said
Citrix Workspace is a unified, secure, and intelligent work platform that transforms the employee experience by organizing, guiding, and automating all activities people need to do their best work.
