How Will Remote Work Evolve In 2022

Only a couple of years ago we all envied those workers who managed to work from home, and then we all found ourselves in the same position when the stay at home and work from home orders were issued due to the pandemic.

While the pandemic restrictions are all being lifted, and businesses are wanting workers to return to the office, a recent survey found that 36 per cent of respondents work from home because they want to, compared to the 64 per cent who are working remotely due to their office being closed, according to Business Insider.

Remote working, much like COVID-19 is not going to completely disappear and will become a more permanent fixture for many workers. We have a look at how remote working will evolve in 2022.

1. Remote Work Is Here To Stay

Opinions are divided, with some business leaders insisting that the office is the best place to get work done, while others believe that a more flexible approach with remote and hybrid options are the future. Businesses will find that they will be able to attract and retain talent easier if they are able to offer remote working options.

2. Asynchronous Communication

Many remote teams are communicating synchronously, with workers online from 9 to 5, with a daily schedule of Zoom meetings and calls. But in 2022, more people will realise that asynchronous communication is key to real remote work.

This gives remote workers agency over their own lives, allowing them to organise their days for maximum productivity, and be able to get one with work without interruptions and meetings.

3. The Best Teams Will Go Global

Global hiring will be a significant factor in shaping remote work in 2022. While many businesses have remote teams, they are likely to all be in the same country, which can limit the hiring options for businesses.

However, even in the post-Brexit UK, hiring internationally is easier than ever, and many organisations are realising they can create a far better team with global recruitment strategies.

    Backing up is VITAL!

    Backing up should be everyones top priority. All too often we see businesses decide to start backing up the wrong side of a costly hard drive disaster or data breach.

    With viruses and malware now capable of causing so much, often irreversible, damage, a substantial backup is imperative. If you’re infected with ransomware, a recent backup often the only way to get you back up and running.

    Why offsite backup and not a removable hard drive?

    Preferably both! But never just a hard drive. Why? Hard drives can fail. It’s as simple as that. Ransomware infections can also creep onto hard drives if they’re left plugged into an infected machine. 

    ​SYS3 use the most reliable and intelligent backup solutions on the market to ensure that our customers’ data is kept secure.

    Why buy your hardware from SYS3?

    Years ago, SYS3 started out by building and supplying custom computer hardware. We know our stuff.

    We keep up with the latest in technology so we are able to provide our customers with the best possible equipment without breaking the bank. Whether you need a new server, laptop, printer or network switch, we’ll always provide you with a variety of options and recommendations to suit your business needs.

    The more advanced technology becomes, the more advanced the bad guys become. Gone are the days when attackers were easy to spot in a badly worded email.

    ​Did you know you can get an infection just by hovering your mouse over a dodgy website banner? Worse? Traditional antivirus products cannot protect you against everything.

    ​Human error is still largely responsible for infections and viruses but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have the best protection possible to safeguard your employees and ultimately, your business.

    ​Partnered with Heimdal, SYS3 provide market-leading protection that is proactive, not reactive like traditional antivirus.


    Spam email makes up 70% of ALL email traffic across the world and social engineering means scammers can directly target key employees. Is your job title on social media?

    Over 60% of breaches are caused by human error. Are you confident that your staff are fully trained to spot email-borne threats and avoid falling victim?

    How SYS3 can help

    Just one click has the potential to grind your entire business to a halt and generate a costly bill to put right. What makes things worse is that email viruses are now incredibly clever, highly convincing, and can be very difficult to spot.

    ​Our priority is to make sure our customers are supported and protected as much as possible. 99% of our customers have adopted our mail filtering service and it comes highly recommended. It’s the first line of defence and a vital tool.
