As a global pandemic reshaped the way we work, many businesses had to quickly deploy creative solutions to enable their workforce to work from home.
Almost 90 percent of organisations have encouraged or required employees to work from home, and nearly all organisations (97 percent) have cancelled work-related travel. The demand to enable remote workers, at scale, is increasing exponentially and no industry or sector is immune.
As we collectively emerge back into our public spaces and workplaces, a new normal will evolve. A normal where our work and home lives will be more blended than ever before, where work is an output and not a place we go, and where flexibility of working arrangements will be talent magnets as our collective workforce reshapes around the new reality.
The workforce will evolve – and all workplaces need to adapt to this, no matter what industry.
Companies are moving towards one of four ‘Always on Business’ models, or combination of these models across different business functions.
There are four key enablers to supporting a fit-for-purpose digital workplace – the implications of every enabler are different in every ‘Always on Business’ model, and the implementation approach will depend on your business outcomes, your space and your workforce requirements.
