As technology is changing the way we interact with our customers, so too is the way we collaborate with our colleagues. The way we communicate with our peers and co-workers today is radically different to the way we communicated with each other five years ago and is almost unrecognisable to the way we interacted ten, fifteen years ago. New advances have been made that consistently revolutionise the channels through which we go about our business, opening the door for more efficient communication and smoother collaboration.
The issue is that many businesses are updating their legacy systems without giving as much thought to their legacy workplaces. The workplace is often not afforded the same amount of time and budget despite being critical to the efficiency of any business; it’s all well and good to update back-end and front-end systems regularly, but if there’s an inadequate platform to facilitate communication between all parts of a large organisation the entire process is undermined. This gives rise to a number of crucial questions regarding how we need to adapt to the new business demands placed on our working environments such as:
- When is the right time to invest in an agile working environment?
- How will technology of the future reshape the workplaces of the past?
- Will the concept of “an office” become something abstract with the rise of devices that allow us to work any time, any place?
Join us on the 29th of September at the St James’s Hotel & Club where the IT Innovators Club will be making these questions the centre of its autumn dinner-discussion. The IT Innovators Club will be bringing together 16 CIOs and IT leaders for an evening of debate and casual networking. Meet peers, discuss relevant issues and enjoy a luxurious three-course meal in an evening with a chaired and confidential debate at its heart.
Some companies are making strides towards the future of the workplace, embracing change and implementing technology to enhance efficient communication across the workplace. Although this is a huge challenge for larger organisations, the benefits are clear; DWF is one of the fastest growing law firms in the UK and needed to change the way its various global offices and thousands of employees communicated. Adapting cutting-edge video services which allow the hosting of multiple video calls concurrently allows the company to simulate face-to-face meetings with colleagues and clients, cementing its reputation as an innovator in the sector. Faster communication, greater collaboration, faster growth; how could these changes streamline your business?
