New research from Ingram Micro Cloud and Microsoft has revealed that 60% of under 35’s value the ability to remote work over generous holiday allowances. M-Files warns that organisations that do not have right infrastructure in place to support ﬂexible working will simply be outpaced by savvier competitors.
Director of UK Business Tim Waterton said that to satisfy this demand for remote working, organisations need to think smarter about implementing the right technologies: “Millennials and Centennials are often thought to be the driving force behind changing workplace practices and are often seen to be having unreasonable and unrealistic expectations. This is simply not true. Work is becoming ever increasingly something you ‘do’ rather than somewhere you ‘go’. By enabling employees to access the information they need to do their jobs from anywhere, using any device – in a secure, controlled fashion – companies can ensure that they have the infrastructure in place to support the demands of digital natives.”
