Office evolution: Why businesses need to rethink their workplaces to survive and thrive

SYDNEY, Nov. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The pace at which organisations had to shift, adapt and transform in the past year has presented a unique opportunity to embrace a new way of working: the hybrid workplace.

Hybrid workplaces enable and equip disparate teams to collaborate effectively, no matter if they are at home or at the office.

While many organisations had already started the process of digital transformation pre-COVID-19, the pandemic has accelerated the rate of transformation according to IT solutions, devices and software specialist, Kyocera Document Solutions. Organisations that took advantage of new technologies to support their workforce at the first signs of change, now need to consider a long-term hybrid workplace strategy. 

“Work is now a thing you do, rather than a place you go,” says Australasian Head of Marketing & Strategy, Mark Vella. “The evolution of the workplace has been accelerated and businesses must be receptive to new hybrid workplaces and digital-first models and those that see an increased efficiency and a more productive workforce. “

Mr Vella acknowledges that in the past few months many companies rapidly acquired new technologies and set up new infrastructure to support their remote workforce, which may have been right at the time, but now the challenge is to ensure these new tools and processes are effective for your teams, as well as secure.

“We’re in a new normal now and this evolution of the workforce was quicker than anyone expected–now organisations are looking to future-proof their hybrid workplace setup,” Mr Vella says.

Taking learnings from clients across the globe, Kyocera Document Solutions has developed a guide filled with insights from IT specialists that help organisations ensure their hybrid workplace infrastructure is resilient, secure and will continue to benefit the organisation into the future.

The strategic approach explains how organisations need to equip, manage and optimise their hybrid workplace. It highlights real scenarios organisations around the globe are facing and how they’re working toward better ways of working with disparate teams who split their time between home and the office.
