Over the past twenty months, we have gotten accustomed to the new ways of living, socializing, and working, due to the pandemic. It virtually brought an abrupt stop to the world, with the organizations finding quick ways to make inroads amid the COVID-19 virus. Similar was the case with Sweden when they conducted their first work from home after the pandemic onset.
It didn’t stop there, as organizations and tech-focused entrepreneurs started to play their cards on broadening their horizons by investing in remote-based startups. Klingit is one of those tech-based startups that took Sweden’s market by storm due to the remote nature of their company. But what’s the next step for companies like Klingit as they gradually move back to the old normal? Let’s elaborate.
Working from Home in Sweden
The transition from working in an office to sitting at a desk at home was a huge shift for employees in Sweden. Imagine that only 4% of employees worked from home before the pandemic. However, after the pandemic, only 30% of them are working from offices. It shows that the operations that can be managed remotely are executed from home.
Of course, some organizations aren’t “completely remote” these days. The hybrid model deals with companies allowing their workforce to visit offices on alternate days. Doing this comes with its fair share of complexities, especially with scheduling tasks. To counteract such scenarios, companies like Common Surface are using easy-to-use management tools that are helping them keep things disciplined.
Startups like Klingit, which are completely remote-based, have an outstanding opportunity to compete with large-scale brands. It doesn’t have any fixed headquarters and doesn’t conform to the stereotypes of any particular region or country. Klingit’s owners believe that their remote working model has enabled them to freely hire the best people for the job without any border restrictions.
The Key Success Factors of Remote Working
When it comes to customer experience, different industrial sectors have been learning significantly throughout this time. There was a huge concern regarding connectivity during the pandemic. However, with the addition of 5G networks, organizations are hopeful that things will work out in the long run.
Of course, with 5G internet, there will be more demands for delivering dynamic services through the effective placement of virtualized network functions. Furthermore, installing hybrid private and public cloud environments can help deliver dynamic services to the clients. All of this may indeed seem overwhelming, but we already had a running start last year.
If you think about organizations that perfectly adapted to remote working, Klingit is one of them. Driven by passion, the company has resolved the core problems behind remote working. In fact, the tech-based startup is expanding beautifully after enhancing its talent pool to the global level. So, if they can do it, anybody can.
It’s not just the organizations that are benefitting from remote working. A vast majority of Swedish employees believe that the concept of working has changed indefinitely. According to a survey, 75% of respondents want their employers to be more flexible regarding remote working, even after the pandemic.
