The evolution of digital workplace technology

Gone are the days when workplaces were just physical spaces that employees occupied from 9 to 5.

With today’s new technologies, we’re witnessing adaptations due to the evolution of digital workplaces and their requirements.

Since everyone is connected from everywhere, employees don’t bother meeting in the same places to work and collaborate. Instantaneity has blurred the lines between how things used to get done and how they are currently done.

With that in mind, every aspect of the workplace has been affected. The boundaries between employees and hierarchy are disappearing, knowledge is being openly shared and employees’ experiences are transforming into one of the main pillars of the business unit.

These new ways of getting work done are leading us to break with traditional, rigid structures and instead concentrate on innovation, efficiency and growth.

To embrace this digital revolution is to succeed with technology adoption. The problem is that some IT departments are still addressing the issue from a purely technological angle and with a tech-only mindset, from implementing digital strategies to measuring their effectiveness.

However, doing so will not only make your strategy rollout more difficult but also keep you from measuring the most important KPIs (i.e. the ones that actually matter), such as internal collaboration, employee engagement and added value.

In this infographic, we won’t talk about how to measure the success of your digital workplace or the KPIs you should pay attention to when rolling out your social intranet project.

We’ll talk more about how to maximize your chances of successfully implementing a new working environment and why you should do so.
