Five Outcomes for the Office Workplace, When We Come Out of the Pandemic – Be Ready

 

  1. The Future is Hybrid: A majority of participants believe there will be an increase in hybrid work, wherein employees will spend part of the week working in the office and the other part working remotely, whether in their home or in a third location.
  2. 100% Remote will be Rare: While some companies are considering allowing employees to work completely remote for as long as they would like, this model will likely be an exception.
  3. Building Flexibility: Office tenants will want flexible office offerings to expand space on-demand. Additionally, tenants will value more flexible, communal space, as needed.
  4.  Layout Changes: The expectation is for expanded communal space such as conference rooms of various sizes, huddle rooms and social areas for people to congregate—cafés, hospitality-style sitting areas, village greens and more.
  5.  Fear of Missing Out (FOMO) Influencing Choice: Workers will potentially worry that their colleagues in the office are having a better experience and that they—remote workers— are “missing things and their career is suffering because of it.” (Source:C&W-Jan 2020)

Choose the services you want, only pay for what you need

In many ways, companies have found that when buying a new computer for their organisation, the device they have purchased will only fit their requirements for that moment in time. A reason for this is that the manufactures of our operating systems and the applications that we use on a day to day basis are continuously bringing out new features that either require more space, more memory or more processing power.

You then get caught in the cycle of your computer slowing down and becoming cumbersome to use. Productivity decreases, reports become slower to run… When we might have been waiting a few short moments for our computer to start so we can answer that urgent email our devices are now taking ten minutes just to get all the services to start in our operating system. Companies now have a depreciating asset that is no long fit for purpose and is expensive to maintain and support.

So what is the solution? The short response is: PC as a Service.

Time to Plan for a Pandemic Preventative Workspace (PPW)

It is becoming clear that until the pandemic has weakened its in presence in Western Europe, we have little hope of returning to our office. Our government has issued guidelines, which from levels 1 to 5 have some level of instruction, not to return to the office. In the meanwhile our economy will struggle and our mental health, challenged. In particular, younger employees, whose right of social passage has been denied and learning by osmosis deferred. 

There is no denying and the research proves that the office environment will return. But not in the guise of its old norm. The culture and values of an organisation will be exercised in the community of the new norm office. But it will be different.

Zoom vs. Microsoft Teams: which should you choose?

Zoom and Microsoft Teams have established themselves as the dominant players in the Video Conferencing market. Zoom as the once up-and-comer now giant and Microsoft entered the video conferencing space with the purchase of Skype in 2011.

The main difference between Zoom and Microsoft Teams is that Zoom is a stand-alone service with a primary focus on Video Conferencing, while Teams is packaged in Microsoft’s Office 365 suite and is designed for collaboration in general (chat, file-sharing, project planning, etc.) with audio and video conferencing ability included as well. In this blog, we will be giving you an overview of the two services with a focus on hardware integration as that is often a major deciding factor for which video conferencing platform an organization uses predominantly.

Office ‘Politics’ is not a bad word

As we enter the seventh month of this pandemic, I am picking up frustration with workers who cannot return to the office. Not because their productivity would be better. Not because they want the commute. But because they feel alone and socially deprived of the workplace. The politics of the office is often perceived as a cancer. But in our new world we must realise the beauty of social interaction in the workplace.

Remote working in a rapidly changing world

The current outbreak will pass. Sadly it will have an economic impact and people will lose their lives, prematurely. In an ever conscious world of populated clusters and global warming, we will remain challenged with changing our social and work habits, in order to give back to mother nature, what is hers.

Our professional contribution can only be to reduce carbon emissions and protect the human race. The Victorian concept of going to a central location in order to work will have to reduce drastically. Undoubtedly meeting face to face is the best way of networking. But familiarity should breathe the use of collaborative technology over the lifetime of that business relationship, rather than the constant need to travel.
