Today’s workforce is radically changing. In fact, it has already changed. Irrespective of what the future holds, the number of remote employees has grown exponentially. The world is more distributed than ever with multiple offices, more employees, and a plethora of devices that, coupled with consumer technology trends are necessitating a holistic and wide ranging approach to the digital workplace.
That said, the physical office probably isn’t going to go away for good. The future is more about working smarter, not longer or harder and as well as this physical work environment, people want to have the flexibility to work remotely if they want to. As a result, organisations really need to consider how real-time, natural collaboration can be fostered, irrespective of location and even more so when teams are congregating in the new physical realm.
Now more than ever, businesses need to enhance their capability to provide secure, remote access to a modern digital workspace—on any device. The right modern workspace solution unites the various elements that make up today’s distributed business environment—its workforce, devices, and technology.
There are multiple considerations to factor into your strategy: what does the property estate of the future look like? How many people will be home-based and how many office spaces can be re-configured for the most flexible working styles? The old offices of the past weren’t built for the agile world we now live in. Beanbags, big screens and poor wifi just won’t cut it anymore. The consumer demands better – and in this instance, the consumer is very much your workforce.
