According to a survey released on Wednesday, at least 61% of employees do not feel alone while working remotely, and 37% of remote workers can communicate even better with their co-workers.
According to Kaspersky, a global cybersecurity company, the widespread usage of non-corporate communication platforms improves connectivity while increasing the risk of unmonitored IT resources.
“Shadow IT solutions prevent security and IT specialists from getting a complete picture of a company’s digital infrastructure,” said Andrey Evdokimov, Kaspersky’s Head of Information Security.
“As a result of this predicament, defenders do not consider unapproved tools while constructing threat models, data flow diagrams, or planning,” Evdokimov explained.
People and organizations have undergone numerous changes in the year 2020. The global pandemic scenario and ensuing lockdown limitations had a significant impact on people’s personal and professional interactions.
The new circumstances posed new obstacles, including social isolation and a lack of communication with co-workers, among the most widely mentioned issues among remote workers.
According to the survey, which included 4,303 IT workers from 31 countries, while the majority of employees have successfully transitioned to the digital communications era, a significant number of respondents were unable to adjust to the small way of life and still feel isolated (39%) while working at home.
Given that loneliness, like other demotivating variables like weariness, exhaustion and anxiety, contributes to employee burnout, this number should concern business leaders.
