As governments around the world ease their lockdowns, businesses must decide how, when and if to return their employees to offices. And Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTXS), the global digital workspace leader, is leveraging its decades of experience in delivering flexible work solutions to help organizations of all sizes across industries do it. The company today announced the availability of a new back-to-office solution built on Citrix® Workspace™ that its customers and partners can use to safely transition employees back to offices, enhance their experience and wellbeing and enable them to efficiently adapt to the new world of work.
“Most companies are realizing that back to the office will not mean back to normal,” said Tim Minahan, Executive Vice President, Business Strategy, Citrix. “Citrix has been powering flexible and secure work models for more than 400,000 global organizations within our digital workspace for more than three decades, and we are uniquely positioned to help them adapt and get back to business while putting the safety and wellbeing of their employees first.”
Historically, the office was the place where collaboration and innovation happened. Outside meeting spaces, colleagues held casual conversations in hallways, cafeterias and gyms. But protocols designed to slow the spread of the coronavirus have changed this. Physical office spaces must now be configured to allow for social distancing. Employee schedules have to be revised to reduce the number of people in buildings at one time. Employees are required to be screened before they enter the premises. And visitors may not be allowed.
“This is an unprecedented time,” said Jeffrey Dean, Director, Global Security and Risk Services, Citrix. “There is no blueprint for safely returning employees to the office, but with the right technology and insights, companies can create a path to drive their business forward.”
