Telstra Purple’s Manoj Bhatt guides us through how to empower people and infrastructure for effective, secure remote working during the Covid-19 pandemic.

With the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, working from home has become the new business normal. Despite the requisite technology and tools being available for years, it has only been in recent months that organisations started remote working at scale – prompted by workplace health and safety considerations as well as legal requirements to minimise the spread of infection.

Almost nine in ten (88%) companies globally have encouraged or required employees to work from home due to coronavirus, according to Gartner.

But most employees’ home technology wasn’t designed to support enterprise use cases, particularly when all members of the household go online at the same time. And the speed and urgency of the migration to home working during a pandemic has been a wake-up call for both employees and employers alike.

Against this backdrop, how can organisations empower their infrastructure and people to work securely and productively from their living rooms, home offices and kitchens?
