A workplace with heart
The pandemic has turned “normal” upside-down and inside-out. We’ve learned new behaviors, adopted new technologies, and adjusted to new ways of working remotely. How can we build on the lessons this period has taught us? We envision a Connected Work Experience in which space and technology are interwoven to deliver focused work and enhance collaboration.
Hi-touch engagement for a low-touch world.
We foresee a hybrid workplace in which hybrid is more than just a combinations of in-office and remote work. In a Connected Work Experience, hybrid is a creative mix of ways that people can meaningfully engage with work and their peers in different work modes and settings. The future workplace will give agency and equity to all work modes. It will provide the means by which people can personalize work environments while also syncing to a strong culture that binds distributed teams together. To support this inclusive vision, each employee will need the right access, tools, and unified interfaces to feel secure and connected. Digitally-enabled spaces will allow people to be heard and seen while working remotely, but they will also provide people with the camaraderie and serendipitous collisions that we all miss so much.
