Thought leadership

Some interesting views on the post lockdown return to work from a leading data and analytics firm in this week’s newsletter, which suggest organisations will be redesigning offices and other workspaces with digital solutions centred around employee safety and wellbeing.

The Innovation Explorer database of GlobalData’s Disruptor Intelligence Center uncovers digital solutions for enterprises around workplace wellbeing and productive remote working that illustrate the ‘office of the future’
Kiran Raj, Principal Disruptive Tech Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “The WFH models in response to the COVID-19 crisis have seen success better than imagined. However, companies are uncertain if the success is because WFH is viewed as a temporary measure and hence are prepping for back-to-office with the promise of a safe work environment by employing digital technologies.”

These digital solution trends include Thermal Screening, Contact Tracing and Social Distancing, Smart Space Booking, Collaboration Tools, and Productivity Trackers – all with a major focus on wellness and mental health
Raj concludes: “Companies are keen to adopt digital technologies that can create a safe office environment for employees returning to work. Nevertheless, the office of the future is expected to be more flexible between work-from-office and WFH models compared to yestertimes. This kind of hybrid work culture may increase the appetite for enterprise-vendor collaboration to build a robust digital infrastructure that is persistently rewarding.”

Interesting stuff and an area that will be discussed at our upcoming 2020 Virtual Internal Communications Conference in the autumn. Look forward to welcoming you there.
