Natural disasters and public health emergencies can strike anywhere at any time. And when they do, organizations need to be prepared to protect their people and minimize disruptions to their business and the larger economy. 

Armed with digital workspace solutions from Citrix Systems, Inc. many are creating flexible work environments that provide access to the tools and information employees need to work safely and securely in the face of unforeseen circumstances.

To enable this, the city, which has been affected by severe wildfires over the past two years, with citizens evacuated and homes destroyed, is implementing Citrix Workspace as part of a broader, cloud-first strategy to establish a platform for business continuity.

But it isn’t the only crisis businesses today face. The talent crunch continues to wreak havoc as well. Korn Ferry recently forecast that by 2030, there will be a shortage of 85.2 million workers globally, and that it will result in lost revenue opportunities of $8.452 trillion. That’s a serious problem. But with digital workspaces, companies can overcome it too.

“From a disaster recovery perspective, we’d like our employees to able to work from anywhere,” says Kyle Edgeworth, Deputy CIO, City of Corona. 

Coronavirus is clearly taking a toll on the global economy. Productivity is lagging as companies restrict travel and workers in affected areas remain quarantined. Supply chains are being disrupted as manufacturing in key markets has ground to a halt. And corporate forecasts are being revised downward as a result. 

“Few things in business are certain except change. And the pace with which it is happening is faster than ever before, Companies that adopt digital workspace solutions and create flexible environments that provide employees with everything they need to be and perform at their best, can not only keep pace but quickly move ahead,” said David Henshall, president, and CEO, Citrix.

Citrix provides a complete range of digital workspace solutions that unify everything an employee needs to be productive into a seamless, intuitive experience. With Citrix, companies can empower people to work in a flexible, secure and intelligent way that unlocks their creativity and innovation and enables them to deliver better business results.
