The New Workspace Episode 8
In the last year, the corporate world has seen a huge shift. Entire workforces were forced to adapt to remote working overnight, and we are still coming to terms with the extent of this shift now. But what does the world of work look like 12 months on, and what are the business implications of these changes?
The move to remote work has catapulted many organisations into digital transformation, and as businesses do become more digital, business agility improves. An estimated $44.4 billion has been saved in commuting costs, and leaders are prioritising employee wellness in a way we’ve never seen before. With immense change impacting the fabric of the working world, it is vital to consider the fundamental shifts and the business benefits they can bring to your organisation. For example, digital transformation and the move to the cloud.
Looking forward, the likelihood is that many organisations will embrace a hybrid model, with employees balancing their time between remote and office based work. So, how does this change the nature of the physical office; how do you facilitate collaboration and maintain engagement with employees that are both in the office and remote.
