Attractive jobs secure the next generation of companies: score points in the “War for Talents” with “Modern Workplace”
The much-cited shortage of skilled workers is troubling German companies. Promising applicants in particular can no longer be attracted by a decent salary, company pension scheme or free coffee. Above all, new talents want to work with stylish devices and modern software tools. “Work smart, not hard” is the motto of the new generation.
In the “New Normal”, the formerly opposing worlds of the workplace and one’s own home are increasingly merging. Today we work – sitting or standing – in co-working spaces, cafés, in the park and on our living room couch. And we no longer work statically at a desk for a day, but rather change place and position much more frequently while working. Therefore, in my opinion, companies today have to rely on flexible devices that not only meet the pragmatic, but also the aesthetic demands of their users.
An offer of modern workstations with iPhone, iPad, and Mac together with Microsoft 365 solves the dilemma. The result of this combination is: productive, attractive and safe. In this way, companies and employees can exploit the full potential of remote work, while still being protected from data breaches such as malware attacks, no matter where they are, and can benefit from flexible working models.
Hardware contributes a lot to a positive external effect: Mobile devices are not only present in the home office, but also on the move and on site in customer appointments. Modern devices always leave a positive impression and contribute a lot to the overall image of the company. It shows quality awareness and appreciation when you equip employees with high-quality Apple products.
The Apple brand has moved beyond its purely technological status over the past few decades to become a status symbol, and it’s easy to see why. The elegant simplicity of the products goes hand in hand with a dedication to quality, creativity and productivity that few manufacturers can match. So it’s no wonder that the iPhone, iPad and Mac are increasingly in demand in modern digital working environments.
Companies that have previously only worked with Windows solutions are finding it difficult to switch to the Apple cosmos. With the right IT partner at your side, the switch doesn’t cause any headaches! With well-equipped system houses, you can rely on individual services in all aspects: certified experts take care of all issues related to the changeover and the seamless transition to a more efficient IT environment. Employees who previously had to deal with slow virtual desktop solutions and cheap PCs will be absolutely delighted with the efficiency of the new equipment. The fact that their productivity increases as a result is a welcome side effect.
The reality is that hackers target anything that is easy to crack, and that often includes Windows and Android systems. A focus on Apple hardware is also due to the special security requirements that companies expect from a modern IT infrastructure. Because while Windows 10 is compatible with countless devices in a wide variety of configurations, Apple’s operating system can concentrate perfectly on the in-house hardware.
Therefore, iPhone, iPad and Mac work extremely efficiently and are optimally protected against cyber threats. System security extends not only to the start-up process, but also to software updates and the continuous operation of iOS and macOS. New employees no longer have to complete lengthy security training because, thanks to Apple, they are not confronted with threats in the first place.
Apple and Microsoft work closely together to make life easier for users. Microsoft has even integrated the benefits of Apple hardware into its own software. The Touch Bar of the MacBook Pro, the eye-friendly dark mode and the excellent cameras for capturing documents are just a few examples that make Apple hardware and Microsoft 365 a good choice when using both iOS and macOS.
Of course, MS Office is available in the App Store and offers all popular applications such as Word, Teams, PowerPoint and Excel for users who want to use their favorite programs in the Apple ecosystem. The changeover is child’s play not only for the company, but also for the employees.
The initial installation is carried out using the Apple Business Managers for a walk. This is an online portal for business customers that enables them to centrally manage and distribute devices, apps and functions. As always with Apple products, this program’s user interface is sleek and easy to use – and dramatically reduces set-up time.
Apple works seamlessly with mobile device management solutions to increase the efficiency of scaling. The installation process is automatic, so remote workers can get started in minutes. The Apple company devices set up automatically as soon as they are connected to a WiFi network. All employees have to do when they receive their device is plug it in and watch it configure itself.
The “Device-as-a-Service” (DaaS) leasing model offers companies numerous advantages. In contrast to the one-time purchase of hardware, savings of up to 37 percent can be made with leasing, especially since the financial burden can be better distributed through monthly installments instead of a one-off investment. In this way, customers also receive an all-round carefree package for technical support when they use the Device-as-a-Service offer, and it is easily possible to exchange the hardware for new models during the contract period.
After all, employees are always happy about new “toys”, especially since an outdated iPhone 6 certainly does not attract potential applicants. The company has the most modern equipment at the best conditions, without any hidden costs and with transparent contractual arrangements.
