How to Plan, Build, and Run a Modern Workplace.

Blogs and insights

By 2024, over 300 million people worldwide will be working in a setting that combines virtual and on-site communication. But to excel in a hybrid world, you need the right technology, tools, processes, and strategy to make collaboration work for everyone, wherever they may be. 

A modern workplace will enable you to stay competitive, maximise productivity, improve efficiency, retain your people, and attract new talent.  

But creating a modern workplace doesn’t just mean implementing communication platforms; it means building an integrated digital working environment that brings together scalable cloud services with leading collaboration and productivity apps. 

It’s about collating the right technology, services, and processes to empower every person in your business to achieve more across locations and devices.

But, building a modern workplace can be complex to get right and costly/time-consuming if not designed, implemented, and managed correctly. 

Follow this guide and you’ll get it right the first time. 

Why do You Need a Modern Workplace? 

Your Technology Defines the Employee Experience. 

Employees are 230% more engaged and 85% more likely to stay beyond three years in their jobs if they feel they have the technology that supports them at work. 

In a hybrid world, technology is what keeps your people connected, productive, and engaged.

Therefore, your choice of technology and processes can mean the difference between isolated and unsatisfied staff and a team that is productive, engaged, and delivering results. 

Continuous Improvement and Innovation are Vital for Success and Growth. 

In today’s highly competitive and rapidly changing business environment, it is important for companies to continually evolve and improve in order to stay ahead of the competition. 

To achieve this, you need a modern workplace that’s agile and built on future-proof technology that can scale with you as you grow. 

The right digital working environment can provide you with the tools you need to continually improve and innovate, leading to increased productivity, profitability, and growth. 

So, How do You Create a Modern Workplace? 

Many people presume that to create a modern workplace you have to implement and adopt complex technologies and tools. 

But that’s not the case. 

Of course, technology plays a significant role in enabling digital change, but a modern workplace is more of a cultural shift.

It’s about creating a connected and empowering environment suited to your people and their work requirements. To achieve this, they need the right resources, tools, skills, and support. 

So, where do you start? 

Well, it’s all in the methodology… 

Plan – Establish your business needs, challenges, goals, and vision. 

Build – Building, configuring, and implementing your new environment. 

Run – Managing, adopting, and scaling your environment.
