I'm the founder of FutureWork IQ where I spend my time assisting businesses to improve their climate literacy so as to understand the projected impacts from the expanding climate crisis and how to adapt their workplaces in the face of these impacts.

Now imagine all you had to rely on as a remote worker was email and telephone calls!

Some essentials to be able to immediately work this way if the need should arise:

> An Enterprise Social Network (Think Workplace, MS Teams, Slack or Salesforce Chatter)
> Video capability (Think Skype or Zoom for all meetings)
> Collaborative Document Storage (Think Google Drive, OneDrive or Dropbox)

Essentially you need an “office in the cloud.”

Of course you also need a team with the digital literacy and fluency to be able to work just as effectively using this type of technology as they would in person.

How ready are you?
