Maria Paitchel the New England Market Director for Regus joins Craig to discuss the use of flexible workspaces. Regus enables people to work their way, whether it’s from home, on the road or from an office. Customers such as Google, GlaxoSmithKline, and Nokia join hundreds of thousands of growing small and medium businesses that benefit from outsourcing their office and workplace needs to Regus, allowing them to focus on their core activities. In the wake of NSA scandal, businesses are more aware of how easily sensitive company information can be leaked. Public settings such as coffee shops and hotel lobbies don’t provide a secure, professional work environment that is often needed. Employers are urging their employees to be mindful of their surroundings when working remotely. Regus has five tips on how you can protect your employers’ privacy while working remotely:
1.Never use the name of a company while making a phone call if you are not in complete privacy – use phrase like “our client” or “our customer”
2.Use a privacy screen on your laptop on long plane, train or bus trips so your traveling companions can’t see specifically what you are doing
3.When you are in the elevator at your company or a customer’s, never mention any person by name or the nature of your visit, even to a colleague traveling with you
4.Look for remote working options that allow you to speak behind closed doors, or not have to shout over the noise of music, road noise or espresso machines
5.If a topic or subject is strictly confidential and you are in public, don’t talk about work at all – how about those Patriots?
