Last March 2020, we entered lockdown, and this in turn led to a new way of working for a lot of people.
I instantly went from working in offices across the UK to then being a completely home-based worker and this in turn led to the acronym WFH (working from home).
In the UK we are now emerging from the “work from home if you can” to a hybrid working model of perhaps going back into the office full time, a few days a week, or remain working from home.
What does this mean for IT professionals?
We’ve now had to develop new support skills and new ways of building and maintaining our corporate IT systems. Perhaps this is now a combination of corporate devices and BYOD (bring your own device) hardware.
We still need to maintain the security of our system and this is now becoming more complex.
People now want to work from anywhere.
