Can your staff work from home? That is the question that Jon Place asks as we come up to the winter months.

Jon said: “As the country greets the wintery weather (as well as the kids cold and flu) staff absences inevitably increase due to unforeseen circumstances.”

The knock on effect of this can be potentially damaging for any business. This is why Integrity Technology Services are working with businesses in the region to make them ‘Winter Ready’.

Jon argues that in today’s world these lost days can be reclaimed – “We cannot get away from technology as it is incorporated within most items that we use on a daily basis. So why is it that wintery conditions still claims so many working hours each winter?

“We are working with local businesses to allow their workforce to be more flexible when it comes weather related absences. Of course most staff need to be at the office however the one day where you cannot get there we can provide a solution to reduce the lost working hours.”
