Mobility = Opportunity
Watching a show on Cspan today reminds me that technology has allowed us a lot of opportunity. Having the ability ....for even a small firm.... to be a flexible employer means that you can be more responsive to keeping and retaining employees. The fact that with a relatively small dollar investment even small firms can have [and I would argue easier] remote connectivity than big firms means that we as small firms are tons more flexible and responsive.
When you set up remote connectivity, much of it is based on policy. It's cheap to ensure that you have a business machine to remote into the office as well as a "teenager" machine. Or how about upgrading the computers at the office and then 'handing down' the old computers from the office to the home workers.
When you think about it, ensuring that your customers and clients that are still using a peer network are aware of the flexibility that having a network that is built for mobility means that that client is now much more ready for keeping and maintaining employees.
