Employees are contemplating heading back to the workplace after working from home for a long time. The challenge of how our workplaces will adapt to innovative workplace conditions is becoming more pressing. The thought of what these new conditions will be is on the minds of people who have missed the office for so long. Sad to say, most corporations are still unable to help their workforce in efficiently encouraging collaboration due to outdated office technology. We can’t avoid the future no matter the circumstance. Returning to the office is a part of the future, is it going to be full time, is it going to be for everyone? For now, we are unsure, but it is a part of the future and we have to re-adapt to it. CIOs and other business executives must begin to revamp the future of work in tech as the borders between business and technology services blur, thus leading to the idea of a futuristic workplace.
By consequence, COVID-19 has resulted in more technological enablement than has ever been before. Personal mobile devices are definitely becoming highly intertwined into the day-to-day job activities as a result of this. Users will utilise them not just to share information, but also to link with smart workplace technologies. Speaking of physical spaces, although we can’t forecast the future, analytics and trends (along with a little intuition) imply that the physical workspace of the years ahead would become smarter as electronic devices and smarter systems get more prevalent.
And we’re already witnessing the progress of workspace-based intelligence that has an impact on just how much energy people use and how ecologically responsible our workspaces are. For example, R/GA London uses a beacon-based approach to help new staff get acquainted with their environment via a smartphone app. For a successful and dynamic onboarding experience, the app sends details such as floor plans and particular areas, as well as what art is on the walls.
Let us be reminded that one of the most important things that employers can do to attract and retain the finest millennial workers is to create an appealing and sustainable environment that looks more like the future than the yesteryear decor of the previous office.
