As hybrid workforces continue to emerge and grow, organisations are establishing smarter ways of working that enable employees to be productive at any time and any place. By using the right expertise and technology, these hybrid workspaces provide organisations with the resilience and scalability they need to thrive in a rapidly changing world.
With many organisations now including a combination of on-site and remote workers, hybrid workspace solutions have evolved to cater to a workforce that can work at any time and any place. The benefits for businesses that implement long-term hybrid workspace strategies include:
An effective hybrid workspace strategy must identify the technology needed to foster long-term productivity, connectivity and security in the work environment. Without this, the risks of a decentralised workforce are high, including cybersecurity breaches, poor business agility in a changing world and low employee satisfaction.
An effective hybrid workspace strategy includes three stages: Equip your team, connect your people and optimise your processes.
Firstly, you need to equip your team with the hardware and infrastructure they need to work from any location. This includes items such as laptops and printers, as well as other tools that allow your employees to be mobile and agile.
The next stage is to connect your people with the right software to enable effective collaboration. Document management and communication tools are critical to this stage.
Finally, you must optimise your processes to use your new technology and services to their full potential. Optimisation enables your workforce to operate smoothly and efficiently by training staff, streamlining processes and automating tasks.
Throughout each of these phases, ICT service providers can offer support and expertise in establishing an effective environment that includes the right tools to ensure a secure and productive hybrid workspace.
