Do I need to invest heavily in expensive technology in order to let me staff work flexible hours?

No, you don’t need to invest in expensive technology to facilitate flexible working.

The growth of flexible and mobile working has been made possible by affordable technology such as smartphones and tablets. And Cloud technology has helped many start-ups cut their expenditure on hardware and software.

Yes, firms do need to ensure their staff can connect whenever and wherever they need to, and mobile/flexible workers must have access to touch-down professional workspaces, but this could cut traditional office bills, rather than increase expenditure.
