Smart businesses transform their workspace by freeing their teams from deskbound working. Virgin Media Business’s Home Working Solution, using its fast and reliable GIGA-Network internet service, facilitates this
When you’re stuck in traffic, have you ever wondered about the outstanding emails or urgent work you could have completed in that time? The endless gridlock, the smell of fuel, your cup of coffee gone cold and it’s only Monday.
And if you commute an hour or so each way every day, that’s about 40 hours of downtime every month. On the other hand, you might be thinking about how you’d eventually like to own or work for a business that employs hundreds of people, creates wealth and makes a real difference in our economy. To do that, you’ll need to be able to scale and you’ll also need to consider flexible working solutions.
Promote Flexibility with a Digital Workforce
Virgin Media Business has designed a Home Working Solution just for you or your business, using our GIGA-Network. We’re empowering employers and their staff to work smarter by giving them the digital tools to work from remote locations. This in turn is making a difference for carbon footprint and quality of life by delivering a more efficient way of working.
Our Home Working Solution offers you reliable internet at speeds of 500Mbps broadband. We also include a unique static IP address, delivered over the Virgin Media Business GIGA-Network and providing the reassurance of being able to securely share confidential data.
Disrupting the Future
The pace of change for Irish businesses is accelerating. Some of this is positive but some of it is also challenging, as old ways of working don’t work anymore. The ongoing fourth industrial revolution is driven by cyber-physical systems and is fuelling a wave of technological innovation. It’s redefining the interactions between people, machines and the environment, and redefining the way we live and work.
Our most recent Virgin Media Business Digital Insights Report highlighted that recruitment is a key focus for businesses, especially in relation to digital skills. Many firms are also enabling their staff to work more flexibly, including from home. The vast majority of businesses say they have good growth prospects and 75% say they are currently creating new jobs.
In its latest Corporate Responsibility Report, our parent company Liberty Global highlighted that the group exceeded our targets to become five times more carbon efficient in 2016 than we were in 2012. We also improved our energy efficiency by 25% over 2015.
This was the result of installing energy-efficient technologies and using renewables and green energy to power our networks, contributing further to our environment and our communities.
According to Aidan D’Arcy (pictured), Head of Virgin Media Business: “Customer care is paramount for us. At Virgin Media Business, our team of experts are highly skilled and there for you every step of the way.
“Smart businesses transform their workspace by freeing their teams from deskbound working. This is what our Home Working Solutions package offers organisations around the country, who are transforming the way they work with our support.”
