Business Transformation through Digital Workplace Management
Gone are the days when the workplace was merely a physical space employee occupied during regular office hours. Today’s world has blurred the lines between the physical office and the place where work actually happens. As the workplace is becoming truly digital, it is important for employees to communicate and collaborate in a new fashion. Organizations are gradually realising this and are integrating the technologies that employees use (from e-mail, instant messaging and enterprise social media tools to HR applications and virtual meeting tools), into the digital workplace where employee experience is breaking barriers and fostering efficiency, innovation and growth.
Even though this is the need of the hour, true success lies in the effective implementation of a digital workplace. The old saying, “Culture eats strategy for breakfast” cannot be truer in this sense. An effective implementation of the digital workplace strategy will truly take place when there is a cultural change.
According to Gartner, Traditional End user computing fails to elevate employee experience amid continuous endpoint updates. I&O leaders must prove the value of infrastructure-led disruption by adopting a continuous endpoint engineering approach and modern endpoint management to drive user enablement and operational efficiency.
According to a report from Deloitte, while the workplace has been constantly upgrading as technology is growing, it is essential to understand the key trends why this upgradation is happening in a rapid manner. Following are the three fundamental trends for this:
- Aging workforce: As the baby boomers continue to retire, they are taking key knowledge with them, increasing the need to capture their knowledge.
- Information overload: information is still growing at exponential rates and employees can’t find what they need, even with technology advances.
- The need for speed: with the rapid pace of today’s work environment, employees increasingly need to work faster and collaborate more effectively to get their jobs done.
The emerging digital workplace can address these concerns by helping organizations:
- In enabling employees to work more transparently and take advantage of social networks.
- Unify offline and online communications by connecting employees through their mobile devices to provide 24/7 access to tools and corporate information.
- Enhancing employee experience by providing choice, flexibility and personalization outside the firewall.
- Minimize spending and enhance productivity by providing employees with the right tools and right information at the right time.
- Win the war on talent by offering the progressive and innovative environments that top candidates now expect
Most organizations don’t realise that creating a digital workplace from square one is not required. Almost all employees use core business applications to e-mail, instant messaging and enterprise social media tools and virtual meeting tools. As employees find comfort and ease by evolving their working approach, it is essential for organizations to embrace the digital workplace otherwise they risk falling behind.
Why adopt a digital workplace strategy?
The benefits of adopting a digital workplace strategy far outweighs the risks of total inaction. The gains are huge to consider:
Organizations with strong online social networks are more productive than those without
Organizations that installed social media tools internally have higher employee satisfaction
As the employee engagement increases, there is a corresponding increase in employee retention
Information workers prefer newer communication tools, particularly instant messaging, over more traditional ones like e-mail or team workspaces.
