THE NEW
NORM

Creating the new remote modern work place

FROM ‘NICE’
TO ‘NEED’

It used to be an added bonus to be able to offer the flexibility of remote working within your business, but with the recent changes it has now become a necessity. It’s gone from ‘nice’ to ‘need’.

Whether you were already offering a certain level of remote working, or it wasn’t something you had previously done; since COVID hitting us, we’ve all had to fully embrace new ways of working, setup new technology and systems, and embrace the fears we all had about full time remote working.

Remote Working has gone from 'Nice' to 'Need'

Will our people be able to access all the information they need, when they need it?

Will our data and systems be secure enough?

Do all our people have the devices and hardware they need for remote working?

HOW TO PREPARE
FOR THE FUTURE

At CPIT, remote and flexible working has been at the core of how we have worked for years.

As a customer of CPIT we’ll help you build & own your Digital Strategy to help you setup for the new normal of working.

We’ve spent years refining our cloud systems and process, building our company culture into a digital format and it’s been so successful we’ve been in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For list for the past 4 years.

But we’ve never had the entire team working from home.

Now that we’ve been completely home based as a business for months, we’ve realised just how well it works. So much so, that we now have a Work From Anywhere Forever policy (catchily named WFAF!).
