Japan faces a declining population and needs to improve labor force participation and raise productivity to remain competitive. This means making it easier for people to work remotely (including while on vacation). Employers, understanding that happy workers are better workers benefit from having a workforce that enjoys a better work-life balance, better retention, and higher productivity.
In this session learn how the NEC uses the Heroku IoT platform to flexibly manage access points. The IoT endpoints (mobile routers) enabled by Uhuru’s enebular IoT Orchestration Service, automatically connect to the network, and powerful visualization tools enable managers and employees to be productive while working remotely or while on vacation.
Regions which provide these remote work solutions can attract companies to establish satellite offices and enable people from the local community to join the workforce without requiring them to relocate to distant, expensive cities. Furthermore, there is a push to get people from more densely populated areas to relocate to the regions, to enable them to take advantage of more ample infrastructure, such as childcare and schools.
