Today’s workplace is evolving at record speed. The workspace – always a hybrid – includes more people working in “non-traditional” spaces – more of the time. These changes were well under way before COVID-19, but the Global Pandemic simply supercharged the transition.
While the goal of business is to meet the needs of the customer, the goal of management is to implement the most effective tools and processes to increase productivity, reduce cost, increase employee retention, and provide shareholder and community value. Business best-practices and standards will change. It seems that for many organizations, what and when to change seems like a daunting task under normal circumstances – and these circumstances are NOT normal.
Captus Systems will help you make decisions that lead to smooth transitions.
As a leading Technology Engineering Company, Captus Systems has always reinvented the modern workspace, and today our focus includes the Remote Workspace/Remote Workforce (which is all of us). Our offerings now include products and services that enable our clients to meet the new expectations of their organizations – and we always take direction from our Clients’ evolving needs.
As we enter the various re-opening phases of our workplaces, some changes that were necessitated by the Pandemic will inevitably be kept in place. According to Gallup, 60% of all employees currently working from home because of current circumstances hope to continue to do so through 2021 & beyond, out of an abundance of caution for their health & safety. Allowing them to do so could be a prudent move by employers, in order to reduce the “desk-density” within the office. The beauty of the technology highlighted below is that it can be easily transitioned directly back to the traditional office when it is called-for.
Focusing on products that can be used to optimize the remote working experience related to logistics is paramount. Here are a few of the things that we’re hearing: The laptop camera is too close to my face; I can’t hear the voices of the people on the call; I was on the Zoom Call but everybody else was on the Teams Call.
