Digital Workplace Transformation
What Is Digital Transformation?
We know that as a business, you’re always looking for ways to evolve and do things better. Whether it’s improving productivity or increasing employee engagement, you need solutions that deliver results. But when the way you work just isn’t working anymore, where do you go from there? Enter the digital workplace.
Effective Digital Transformation is the integration of digital technology into all areas of your business – a whole new age of employment that’s changing how we do business. A digital workplace allows for far better communication and collaboration across the workforce, it’s a progressive digital environment that can bring about a whole host of benefits for your organisation.
Microsoft Office 365
Too often, the tools needed for the digital workplace are implemented in silos, reducing their effectiveness. With Office 365 you’ve got the benefit of a truly holistic solution that’s able to support every aspect of your business. Some of the great features include:
- Microsoft Teams & Skype – These offer instant messaging and video meeting capabilities, so you’ll never have to wait long for a response while working remotely.
- Sharepoint – This collaboration tool encourages transparency across the projects, helping everyone to stay on the same page.
- Azure – A cloud platform that enables complete access to all of your tools away from the workplace.
Whatever you’re looking for, Office 365 has everything you and your employees need to communicate, collaborate and connect – whenever and wherever.
The challenges of the changing workplace
The truth is that the workplace of today is changing. Gone are the days of 9 to 5 in the office, restrained by company equipment and a need to all be in one place. Now the modern workplace is increasingly remote and more flexible than ever before, but with this comes its own unique challenges.
Employees need the right tools to enable them to do their jobs effectively wherever they are, and you need to be able to ensure you can support this virtual environment, keeping lines of communication open, productivity high and the employee experience positive. For that, you need to adopt some changes – and luckily, we can manage them all for you.
The Benefits of Digital Workplace Transformation
So why make the investment? The simple answer is that it’s crucial in helping you support this inevitable cultural change. It’s already happening in workplaces around the world, and you don’t want to be left in the dust of your competitors by failing to act now. But there’s so much more to it than that:
As many as 64% of employees would accept a lower paying job if it enabled them to work more flexibly. Embracing digital transformation really could be the key to winning the war on talent, and acquiring the best possible people for your business.
Increased employee satisfaction & engagement
Organisations with social media and newer communication tools are much more likely to see an increase in employee satisfaction. And with the modern workplace allowing for employees to take advantage of self-guided learning opportunities, it can easily lead to a workforce that cares more deeply about its organisation.
Another benefit of strong online social networks is a boost to productivity – a whole 7% more productive than organisations without them. And by streamlining operations and removing standard roadblocks, digital workplaces help teams operate at peak capacity.
With more remote working on the cards, you might think that your cyber security would be at greater risk, but with the right tools it can actually become more robust than ever. You can control access permissions, ensuring that only authorised users get onto your network, and a wide range of threat detection capabilities mean you can shoot them down before they even materialise.
