The World Health Organization has officially labelled it a pandemic, with almost 120,000 cases across 144 countries as of March 11th.[/boc_heading][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Along with tracing, detecting, testing and treating those infected, their advice is to mobilise people to isolate and suppress the virus. A key part of this is self-isolation, requiring people to stay indoors and avoid contact with other people for two weeks.

What’s crucial here is that businesses give their workforce the facilities to self-isolate. Forcing staff to come into work will lead to a quicker spread and more people infected. At the same time, allowing your team to self-isolate doesn’t have to result in a drop in communication or productivity for your business.

With the right technology, your workforce can form a virtual team, without any compromise on productivity. Quite the opposite, in fact.

Members of a truly virtual team can share documents and data quickly and securely. They can communicate and collaborate across a variety of channels. And you can track their productivity, progress and performance in an instant.

Each of these functions requires the right technology. However, for true productivity, those various technologies need to be compatible, streamlined and secure. Crucially, they also need to be available wherever and whenever your team needs them – and across all devices.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1592296500886{margin-top: 0px !important;margin-bottom: 0px !important;padding-top: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;background-position: center !important;background-repeat: no-repeat !important;background-size: contain !important;}” el_class=”overlap_quote_row”][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1592296445378{margin-top: 0px !important;margin-bottom: 0px !important;margin-left: -30px !important;padding-top: 0px !important;padding-right: 20% !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;}”][vc_column_text css_animation=”boc_animate_when_almost_visible boc_left-to-right” delay=”300″ css=”.vc_custom_1592311212194{border-left-width: 2px !important;padding-top: 15px !important;padding-right: 11% !important;padding-bottom: 15px !important;padding-left: 40px !important;background-color: #f9f9f9 !important;border-left-color: #0faaca !important;border-left-style: solid !important;}” el_class=”no_padding_in_responsive_column aura_quotes”]At Aura, we promote agile, remote working.
