Live Today Remote workers need support and training. The IT department needs to secure their devices and fix them when they go wrong. Consumer devices need to be integrated, and business systems need to be re-engineered.

But that's not all. Research shows that remote working demands a whole new set of skills from the staff - time management, decision-making and team-working. Poor communications tools can spread frustration and confusion. The result is that the flexible organisation can be less efficient than traditional companies, not more.

You can't solve these problems overnight, but you can put the systems in place to make sure they don't give you a collective headache. How does the IT department build the perfect flexible worker?

In today's live broadcast at 11:00 GMT El Reg broadcast editor Tim Phillips asks Tim Stone from Cisco and Andrew Buss from Freeform Dynamics to show us their blueprints.

We would love you to share your experiences in this area via our on-going live Q&A window. Together we are sure to come up with a practical evaluation on how to achieve the flexibility that’s needed in your business’ IT department.

Sound interesting? Good, you can join us today for this free event right here.
