If disaster struck, most U.S. employees could not work remotely
If major business interruptions — such as severe weather, mass illness, major road closings, or public transit strikes — occurred, the majority of employees in U.S. organizations could not work remotely
The majority of employees at approximately three out of four organizations could not work remotely if they had to, according to a new survey. The survey commissioned by Cisco and conducted by InsightExpress validates concerns that U.S. organizations, both public and private, could not continue operating if major business interruptions occurred, such as severe weather, mass illness, major road closings, or public transit strikes. The survey was taken by 502 IT professionals from organizations large and small spanning five industries: health care, finance, retail, education, and government.
