With more than 1 in 6 of all UK workers having already made the move to flexible working (Hanhike & Gareis, 2004), smart organisations are realising the many benefits it brings, from increased efficiency and productivity to reduced costs and improved staff retention.
But how do you ensure your workforce has the right tools to maximise potential and make your flexible working initiative a success? With some of the most compelling productivity features available, Outlook 2003 could be the answer.
Outlook 2003 makes it easier than ever for employees to read, organise and work with information and collaborate with their colleagues, wherever they choose to work.
Outlook 2003 employee benefits:
- Reduced travel grind
- Remote access to email and calendaring without complex and costly (virtual private network) VPN connections
- Reduced training time – users are already familiar with the interface and multipane view
- Real-time communication and collaboration from anywhere
