Remote Working


The Government is recommending that we prepare for up to 20% of the workforce to be on sick
leave and any given time in the coming months.

To help your business manage through this challenging period there is technology to keep the
wheels turning.

By making use of the communications systems available in Microsoft’s Office 365, you can keep your
team in touch and collaborating even if staff can’t get into the office.

SY have prepared a simple checklist below. Take a look and see how well prepared you are.

If there are any areas that you need help, don’t worry, just drop us a call or email and we can get you sorted. And – as its all based on Office 365 – you won’t need to spend much money.
