As many parts of the world are reaching the end of the pandemic, and along with it, the beginning of the post-pandemic work models — fully remote, fully in-office, or hybrid — maintaining productivity remains a challenge for many organisations.
The increase in apps and systems rolled out to combat the distance between newly disparate teams in the wake of the pandemic led to more complex workspaces and a breakdown of the 9–5 work day. Time gained without the daily commute was converted into time spent toggling between tools, hopping on Zoom calls, and responding to Slack messages. Therefore, it has never been more important for businesses to establish strategies that will enable the entire organisation to work as one in a single digital workspace.
Organisations need to utilise modern technologies – such as communications tools and work management platforms – in order to ensure that their employees are doing their job effectively. By simplifying the way work gets done through sophisticated collaborative work management solutions, employees will have better visibility and alignment, make use of agile planning and execution, and realise OKRs and company objectives. It’s through this reimagination of ‘the future of work’ that companies will be able to achieve a happier workforce, no matter their location. And it’s well documented that happy employees demonstrate lower burnout and increased productivity levels.
