Transcript of 2040 workplace
This isn't necessarily a bad thing. Businesses can capitalize on the evolving nature of the office by striking a balance that combines virtual and physical work and space. This could ultimately increase productivity and lower costs without sacrificing company culture or individual motivation.
Information technology has turned the assumptions of where work happens and the role of buildings inside out. Innovative corporate leaders have already recognized that technology allows their employees to be mobile, to work with colleagues remotely and across time zones, and to get work done in a variety of settings both inside and outside of the traditional office. These businesses have saved money, increased work flexibility, and made the best use of their real estate. And these new flexible workplaces are also providing gains in worker productivity.
Today, companies are increasingly focusing on the predicament of how to help employees concentrate and get work done -- which is traditionally thought to require an enclosed office space -- while also allowing for the significant benefits of open and flexible office environments, including creativity, knowledge, teamwork and coordination. We know that open environments can inhibit work; we also know that they can promote interaction and knowledge sharing.
So what is the solution? Enter the hybrid workplace.
Hybrid environments provide a mix of enclosed and open work spaces that are available for users to occupy on an as-needed basis.
The mobility we now have allows individuals to choose how and where they work best. A flexible work environment can balance the needs for individual work with the need for interaction. The advent of untethered technology and mobile ways of using space has all but eliminated the challenge of deciding between openness versus enclosure when designing a workplace.
Hybrid work spaces offer both open and closed environments that can be useful in a variety of ways. In a hybrid workplace, employees have the option of working individually in a quiet space or working with their colleagues in open, collaborative team areas or rooms. Furthermore, the hybrid workplace can take advantage of technology to combine face-to-face and virtual collaboration -- both within the office and remotely.
Cisco's (CSCO) McCarthy Ranch campus in Milpitas, Calif. has gone the way of the hybrid workplace. Hundreds of mobile workers who use the campus have access to eight different kinds of unassigned work spaces: workstations, touchdown spaces, privacy rooms, focus booths, open project spaces, team rooms, lounges and dens. The spaces support many different kinds of virtual collaboration using IP technology and audio and video conferencing. What will the future workplace look like?
-It will be different due to new environments and our age grouping is aging with more younger and technological groups.
-There will no longer be a 9-5 grind spent in an actual office, it will more of a home office and no computer office work it will be I phone/ blackberry 24/7 work, and no star bucks coffee network break it will be the star bucks take coffee home and do office task at home office.
-Business can make a balance scale of virtual and physical work and space, this will lead to increased productivity and lower and efficient costs without sacrificing the companies culture, pride or motivation for individuals.
-As years go on, innovative corporate leaders have recognized technologies will allow employees to be more tech and mobile, across time zones and with this work will get done both inside the office(if needed) or at home at your personal office.
-Employees will get flexible work office work environments, with creativity, knowledge, team work, and cooperative work setting.
-As well the add on of new technologies and new places with it, work spaces such as hybrid work places will, offer both open and closed environments for employees, can do virtual collaboration and face advantage.
-With the richness of face to face communication allows for faster decision making, information flow, to help present environments that have never occurred in the past.
