New workplace structures and conditions are now on the cards for IT bosses too. Collaboration within companies has been fundamentally transformed over the past few years. New strategies for communal working on site and online are currently being developed. And the IT needs to keep up. 2022 promises the following trends for companies.
Over the last few years, many organisations have made working from home an option for their staff. The question, though, is often whether the space should be expanded and what workplace concepts make sense—as not all employees will be present at the same time. The shared desk principle is a popular solution. And it’s IT that makes this possible, from logging in to booking desks.
What was previously a question of IT security is now one of health management. Conditions set out by authorities regarding current health regulations need to be taken into account. It can help here by providing digital management tools to facilitate simple implementation of these requirements. This includes inventory lists with a button for re-ordering masks and rapid tests, ensuring the maximum occupancy of each room/on-site meeting, test results or proof of vaccination in order to be able to trace infections chains as needed. In short: It’s all to make staff on site feel safe.
The new tasks and requirements need to be digitalised as much as possible and incorporated into the existing company environment. Whether that’s with apps or via existing systems and platforms, these new processes can then be used digitally. This could be an app that allows employees to book a desk (such as the AddOn workspace app). Larger platform solutions such as ServiceNow offer interface solutions and applications out of the box that enable seamless integration into existing IT processes.
