Not only in the area of People & Culture have things changed since the Corona pandemic at the latest - there has also been a great upsurge of changes from a technical point of view.
Here you can get a first impression of what to expect from the technology sector next year at the New Work Evolution, which will take place from 4 to 6 June 2024.
Uncomplicated collaboration even outside the office: Team, Slack & Co.
For many companies, the pandemic meant a rapid shift from mostly just working in the office to working from home. This change suddenly raised completely new questions and problems that companies had to deal with quickly. This resulted in a true revolution of technology in the office environment. New conferencing tools were introduced to facilitate collaboration, even across great distances, and these have become a permanent fixture in the working landscape in recent years. Teams and Slack have become as much a part of everyday work as employee education tools.
Improved ability to act and new digital business models
The home office trend, which was greatly accelerated by the pandemic, has shown how easy it can be to implement technical changes without elaborately planned change management. For companies, the crisis has shown that it is also quite possible to maintain their ability to act through new modern tools without any problems and even makes it possible to establish processes in a simpler as well as less complicated way and that there are hardly any limits to creativity.
The future of work: flexibility and self-realisation
The optimisation of modern working through home office has greatly accelerated the developments towards New Work, as it has been proven in practice that innovations can be successfully implemented in a timely manner. For employees, this means more flexibility and self-realisation in the professional environment. For companies, not only money is saved because business trips are no longer as important as they used to be, but also employees are much more satisfied and motivated in the long run. Co-working spaces, transparency and agile project management are no longer foreign words and will, in the long run, change a lot of things in the working world that has been dusty for a long time.
