Before 2020, the workforce could be segmented primarily in 3 ways.
Who is doing the work, where that work happens, and what tools, methods and style that work happened in.
Covid-19 has changed that and forced employers to rethink what their employees need.
The rapid transformation of the traditional, even the most progressive corporate environment, pulls not only technology but stretches people beyond their comfort zones; challenging their ability to maintain personal relationships while maintaining top productive efforts on the work front.
We’re developing a new way of working together.
It’s becoming important to consider people as they balance work and life, often in the same environment, from the same kitchen table they’re prioritising the business and personal.
Making homes the new workplace puts added strains on security with an increase of attacks on home Wi-Fi networks – and added emphasis on our workstyles being with remote teams.
Getting connected is one thing, but building a connection is another. The need for collaboration is at an all-time high, the crucible of business is engagement, and having a webcam that doesn’t fall short, with a mic and speakers built for collaboration first is a key.
Employers are finding that they have to pivot to address these new issues. The office is new again, so how can we enable people to be their best?
