Where COVID-19 challenges are leaving their mark is exactly where digital transformation and team collaboration are shining.
Data suggests that employee experience is incredibly low, with less than 15% of the world’s workers saying they are engaged at work, according to Microsoft.
This number should not come as a surprise when an average worker suffers an interruption every three minutes. Many workers feel that 47% of their time in meetings is unproductive, and they spend 20% of their working time searching for the information they need to complete their tasks.
To attract new and retain their current employees, today’s companies need to equip their workers with tools that will allow them to be more productive but also to transform their workplace culture. A modern workplace should inspire creative thinking instead of routines. It should enable employees to connect more to each other as well as the organization they work for. A modern workplace should also protect company and customer data and mitigate the risks posed by cyber threats.
Here are a few tips that can help any company foster a new culture of work.
Understand the True Meaning of Digital Transformation
Businesses tend to confuse digital transformation with just digitizing data. Modern workplace technologies provide tools designed to empower employees, foster seamless collaborative experiences, and increase productivity. The most significant benefit of ensuring digital transformation at the workplace, besides greater employee satisfaction, is that companies will be able to make changes and deliver solutions in a matter of weeks instead of years.
Embrace Smart Solutions
We live in an era marked by the rise of data, artificial intelligence, machine learning, the cloud, and numerous other technological advances. Technological innovation can undoubtedly fuel more agility and efficiency at the workplace and create a culture that empowers employees to achieve more. Embracing technology and smart solutions, even as simple as data management software, can shift behavior, inspire ideas, accelerate progress and truly transform a company.
Communication Is Key
Communication and collaboration are essential for company growth. Numerous companies decided to move to a modern working environment that promotes communication and employee satisfaction. Endress+Hauser made a significant change after implementing Office 365. The company reported that this service resulted in better performance, greater mobility, and better connectivity.
Support Creative Teamwork
Modern workplace technologies are designed to promote and support creative teamwork. Paypal, a worldwide online payments company, is one of the leaders in building workplaces of the future. “From programmers to engineers to marketers, the company is engaging and retaining employees through a comprehensive set of tools that are flexible enough to accommodate different workstyles,” said Ron Markezich, corporate vice president for Microsoft.
Making a switch to a modern workplace doesn’t take too much time or effort. It requires only implementing tools and software that make it easier for employees to communicate and complete daily tasks.
