Hybrid work is the new reality for businesses heading into 2022. According to a survey from HealthEquity, 77% of workers do not want to return to working onsite full-time with 43% of those surveyed wanting a hybrid work model moving forward. The number one reason for wanting continued remote work — the time and cost associated with commuting to the office.1
For employees, hybrid work gives them the perfect balance of time and flexibility while increasing productivity. Adapting employees to a hybrid work model is a daunting task for IT teams as they will need to enable access to a secure network, headsets, cameras, and video functionality that enhances the virtual collaboration experience for all employees.
For IT teams, equipping team members for hybrid work will be critical. From secure network access to headsets and cameras that make meeting experiences better, to video and chat collaboration for all teams that enhances the virtual collaboration experience for all employees.
But the forgotten angle is what to do with your current office spaces? Hybrid working spaces need to be outfitted with new technology that accommodates the needs of employees coming into the office as well as those working from home. The mix of employees includes the daily commuters who want to be in the office every day; the hybrid workers who come in once/twice a week; the mobile workers who travel from office to office; the traveling executives or the remote employees who come to the office for a few days per quarter.
Depending use case-driven approach you want to deploy, you might be trying to make safer spaces, environmentally friendly spaces, enable more collaboration, enable touchless meeting spaces, or improve communications within spaces.
The places and the spaces will all need upgrades to drive your business outcome. The list of places is long and includes the lobby, common spaces like break rooms, hot desking and hoteling spaces, call centers, network operations centers, conference and meeting spaces, huddle spaces, boardrooms and training rooms.
The list of technology and IoT devices can include: touch free room scheduling devices, room indicator lights, occupancy sensors, thermostats, shading solutions, touch screens and panels, video cameras, digital screens and signage, smart boards, projectors, microphones, sound masking, access control, smart furniture, smart appliances, environmental sensors and kiosks.
