18 Sep The Workplace Evolution: Adapting to the Digital Office
The workplace, as we know, is evolving with changing demographics and growing expectations of technology. This is transforming the workplace into a sophisticated modern environment. It has presented businesses with the challenge of both maintaining current systems and allowing for IT innovations. To stay competitive and support the needs of the business, adapting in the right way is essential.
Gone are the days of traditional workplace environments. Businesses have had to adapt tools and resources needed to service the needs of an increasingly mobile workforce that are expected to reach almost 2 billion workers by 2022. Today, at least 50% of employees work remotely for half of a workweek.
For IT, the trend of flexible working brings added challenges with the introduction of new outside devices and networks to corporate systems, which can leave organizations vulnerable. In addition, a large number of network devices used for work tasks, which is predicted to reach 38.6 billion by 2025, makes the task of keeping devices maintained, up-to-date, and secure extremely complicated and time-consuming.
A virtual working space is approaching reality and staying productive across different locations. Working hours, businesses rely on their IT departments to deliver capabilities that support effective collaboration and communication.
These changes have brought an influx of applications and communication tools to workplaces, which can negatively impact productivity. Networks with a mixture of apps and tools that are not compatible with each other, transferring data and knowledge from one program to another, or one person to another can be grueling for businesses to manage.
Plus, employees are becoming more and more frustrated with the lack of streamlined use that this type of communication sets up causes. That is why we recommend implementing one easy-to-use tool. Having a solution that unifies communication into one platform across the whole business makes it simpler for businesses to use and communicate. It will mean an increase in productivity for their employees and encourage growth for the business, not to mention the flexibility and mobility of a unified system will provide for remote workers.
