We understand that the old must be treasured, but with technology advancing so quickly, there is a need for specific areas to be upgraded to ensure enhanced productivity.
Just as the smartphone was designed, taken to market and has redefined how people consume media, the workplace is being redesigned to change the way people work – saving time, being more productive and more innovative each day.
Below are a few points to remember when creating a futuristic workplace:
Everyone works in the information technology sector
Yes, everyone is an IT expert in their own way and this will only inflate in the years to come. Why? Well, it’s quite simple. Become an IT person and you won’t fall behind your competitors. Technology can seem overwhelming, but we all use computers, software systems and tools on a daily basis. This allows us to work remotely and still be just as productive as when we’re in the office from 9 am – 5 pm. So, if your employees know how best to work these systems, it makes the workplace much more streamlined.
Artificial intelligence is here and it’s going to stay
We all hear this “AI” speak wherever we go. But it’s not just a buzz word. AI has been created to help companies better spend their budgets on the elements of business that matter.
We all use apps that are linked to AI, even when we don’t realise it. Artificial Intelligence was created for the ease of automation and data filtration. It is one of the most advanced technological elements of the 21stcentury and companies are using AI to help save time, collect data and spend budgets only where necessary – based on performance. This gives your employees more time to focus on innovating products and services.
Personalising services are effective
When you chat with consumers about the brands that they are affiliated with, the first thing that they generally say is “they don’t know me as an individual”. People say this about their banks, network providers, insurance companies, and so much more.
The essence of this insight is that people want to feel a personal experience with the brands that they use. So, in a futuristic workplace, it’s important to design according to what people want. They want to be greeted by their first names, have a personalised solution and create relationships with you. Let them. Remember that no matter how advanced technology gets, achieving brand loyalty and advocacy is the golden nugget of business.
Change is constant – it’s time to embrace it
The workplace is so dynamic, and things change all the time. There are always better tools, CRM systems, traffic systems and servers out there.
But as a futurist company, the key is to keep changing with the world. This allows for better creativity, better communication and better response from staff and clients.
The future workplace will look at the next level of technology. It is no longer about just automating admin. Technology now allows us to think beyond. Your employees will soon look at how to make the space more intelligent, more personalised and how to enhance “how” we want to work.
By making your workplace a space of the future, you will see happier employees, more productivity and innovation and all in all – happier clients. Embrace the change and move towards a smarter, more adaptable and intelligent workplace.
