Cloud computing will change your work life

It’s easy to lack motivation for each 9-5 day that comes. It’s days like that when we find it harder to get out of bed, harder to feel positive and harder to be productive.

As humans, a routine can be the death of our motivation. Causing you to view something you love as something you have to do. Of course, this is just a temporary emotion but why put up with it and risk business productivity when you could do something about it?

Cloud computing offers numerous ways to improve your work life whilst increasing motivation and productivity at the same time as you take control of your work days. Here’s how:


By adopting cloud computing, you are allowing your data to be accessed on any authorised device. This includes traditional desktops but also allows you to work on mobile devices such as iPads and iPhones. With the adoption of the cloud, you can allow employees to work from the environment of their own choice, giving employees a sense of freedom and independence.

58% of small businesses’ regular work tasks currently require employees to be physically present in the office. This is a result of a lack of technology that could make access to company data from elsewhere impossible.

Mobility and flexibility come hand-in-hand. By allowing workers to be able to access their data from wherever they choose, they can also opt for flexible working hours as they don’t physically need to be in the office. This is great for child care commitments or if you couldn’t get a vital appointment outside of working hours.


With this freedom, it’s easy for enterprises to question how productive staff will be when they aren’t in a typical working environment. Trust is needed between staff and leaders to enable an effective work from home (or anywhere) policy.

In reality, working remotely has seen results of enhanced productivity; 91% of remote workers believe they “get more done”. In addition, 52% of remote workers are less likely to take time off.

It’s also important to remember that a productive workplace is a profitable one. So, for those who do not want to invest further in a new IT infrastructure you should consider that this investment could lead to profit.


Our phones are often viewed as a distraction within the office- the habit of aimlessly checking notifications every 20 minutes can hinder productivity. However, instead of viewing these tools as an issue with productivity, enterprises should really be viewing them as an opportunity to cut down on costs whilst still having an effective kit. In addition to allowing staff to determine their own working hours, they can also take advantage of up-to-date technology and software. It is thought that 81% of employed adults use at least one personally owned electronic device when at work.

BYOD strategies can be implemented when the cloud is adopted, allowing employees the ability to work and communicate with their own devices. This minimises disruption that could be caused by outdated hardware.


Remote workers are indeed happier. A survey revealed that when asked the question “how happy are you at work?” remote workers scored 8.10 whilst workers who do not work remotely scored 7.42. With increased happiness, also comes a decrease in stress with 73% of workers identifying flexible working as critical to help ease work-related stress.

When a project needs to be completed within a tight timescale, it can increase both pressure and stress. By being able to work from home, you can eliminate the distraction of colleagues surrounding you and simply focus on the task at hand.

The way we work is being revolutionised. Employees will need to step up and adapt to these changes to perform to their best ability. Likewise, enterprise decision makers should embrace new technology and encourage workers to do the same.
