How CIOs Can Enable a Mobile-First Workplace?

A mobile-first workplace is soon becoming a priority statement for CIOs as employees are better connected and engaged. With remote employees becoming a reality, mobile technologies are a necessity now. In this article at, Hannah Williams discusses how CIOs can enable a mobile-first workplace.

Perks of a Mobile-First Workplace

While BYOD strategy has its own challenges, a mobile-first workplace can increase employee productivity, customer experience, and product marketing. Without much delay, let’s find out below the requirements of a mobile-first workplace:

The New Work Environment: With a mobile-first workplace, it becomes easier to handle transactions, documentation, and customer support. The millennials and Gen Z workforce take advantage of the flexibility and collaborate better. In fact, a Deloitte study reveals that 94 percent of millennials suggests collaboration is ‘critically important’ for work.

The Right Setting: When your business is moving from standalone work ecosystem to a mobile-first workplace, it is necessary to build the right foundation. Beef up your security to create a cost-efficient and reliable system structure. Regularly update in-house software and hardware and keep backups to avoid sudden misplacement of critical company assets. Ensure that the employees know the current laws and regulations and get support wherever required.

App Store: CIOs should work with the IT department to create an app store where employees can download secure apps for their work. Since Android and iOS devices are popular, ensure all can access the app store in these devices. Regulate login hygiene to prevent unnecessary hacks and accidental exposure to malware.

Management of Mobile Services: It is important to monitor mobile activities. Automated notifications to resolve issues can lessen the number of breaches due to mobile devices. Mobile service management could also help in providing secure access to in-house apps, emails, and portals.

Policies: It is common for people to connect to different networks to work. The problem is, it can also increase the possibility of data breaches. CIOs must implement policies to secure work devices along with employees. To enjoy a mobile-first workplace, IT leaders must train the employees to use their devices with caution.
