Perhaps the most consequential use of the Janus SPU is that it enables a secure work-at-home model. Obviously the device ensures that enterprise data is not misused by employees (wherever they may be) and allows the enterprise to be sure that work is being done.
Studies show that workers at home (in creative jobs) actually work many more hours, and more productively, than those commuting to work.
For a number of professions where individual talent matters —e.g. law, banking, insurance, information technology—working from home is a perk enabled by the internet age. It is now feasible to provide via the internet nearly all applications needed by an employee in a place of business. While there may always be a need for personal contact, teleconferencing occurs today even among participants inside the same building.
Employees working from home
gain the following advantages:
- Opportunity to work when productive rather than by set schedule
- No need to commute saving time and expense
- Increased ability to focus on family (a significant issue for countries with declining birth rates)
- Ability to work when cultural norms otherwise interfere (an issue for the KSA where educated females are difficult to employ)
- No need to relocate to meet job requirements
Employers whose employees work from home
gain the following advantages:
- Reduced cost of commercial space
- Less stress on commuting employees
- The ability to hire talent without the need or cost of relocation
- Improved retention as employees have less exposure to rivals, and for a while at least, no rival can offer these perks without the need for relocation
- Increased productivity from certain classes of employees
No one is able to predict the consequence of this innovation, but we can anticipate significant changes in commercial real estate markets, the expansion of fiber as upload speeds become important, and the renewed need for home offices and that effect on apartment/condo/home design and sales. Cultural changes (females able to work in certain cultures, more children, less commuting reducing energy costs as well as road/rail congestion and wear) are harder to predict but are attractive to certain customers.
