Top 10 Remote Working Softwares

Posted by Benjamin Hermitte, on Wednesday 5 April 2023

Since the pandemic, remote working has become an established part of business. Today, many employees have definitely adopted this way of working. According to the Telework and Hybrid Organisations 2022 barometer carried out by Malakoff Humanis, 38% of employees were working from home by the end of 2021. After having been subjected to this way of working during the crisis, 68% of employees have now chosen to work from home after realising its many advantages. On average, the number of days worked remotely is two per week.

However, for a team to be effective and productive when some of its members are working from home, it is essential to provide them with the necessary and appropriate tools for remote working. These digital solutions allow employees to communicate with their colleagues as if they were in the same office, exchange information, share documents and easily access the tools and applications they use on a daily basis.
