Cristina Gibson Provides Expertise to Washington Post on Remote Work Environments
Cristina Gibson was recently tapped by Washington Post reporter, Danielle Abril, to share her expertise on hybrid and remote work environments. Since the start of the pandemic, employees have had to operate in remote and hybrid work environments. Employees are finding themselves using better personal devices and even splitting their work between work and personal devices due to employers not providing better work tech. Companies that have gone fully remote or created a hybrid workplace are seeing cost savings on real estate. Employers would be wise to invest those savings for the best technology for their workers. Employees that need better work technology should alert their employer of these technology challenges. Gibson shares “one way workers can build their case for either improving company-issued technology or for reimbursement for their own personal products is by documenting their work. When are workers using tools provided by the company and when do they have to turn to their own personal devices or service subscriptions to get the work done?” Gibson cautions workers to ensure they are not breaking any company security policies when using their personal devices. Companies that have workers using their personal devices to complete and deliver a project should see this as a signal and address the technology gap.
