With the price of diesel passing the seven-hundred-naira mark in a country in which the power supply is epileptic, it is just a matter of time before many more companies adopt remote working as a cost-cutting measure.
The ongoing road construction, especially in a city like Lagos, is further adding to the number of hours workers have to spend commuting to and from work, especially in a city notorious for traffic.
Combine the diesel soaring prices and increasing commute time to the COVID-19 pandemic which has prevailed for two years and it is safe to assume that remote working is here to stay. However, a major hindrance to effective remote working has always been the availability of gadgets and tools for work.
Employers readily provide these tools to be used at the office. But since working from home has become part of the new normal, ensuring that efficient work tools are available is a herculean task for many employees.
The new normal workspace, wherever that might be, has prompted organisations to identify tech gadgets that allow staff to deal with their workload more effectively.
From Laptops and their accessories to other gadgets, the functionality or otherwise, of these work tools can be the difference between productive, result-filled work and excuse prone, no results work!
