The term “modern workplace” is no longer just a term used at a start-up tech company but rather used to describe organizations that have embraced the reality of digital collaboration, solutions, and integration as the way of the future. This new way of defining the workplace has paved the way for technologies supporting automation, digital workspaces, and hybrid work.
Establishing a successful modern workplace requires open communication. Significantly, open communication builds trust, prevents impending conflicts, and resolves issues faster. A great way to add a vehicle for regular open communications is to introduce a corporate networking platform into the workplace that can be used at multiple levels for a variety of employee activities including use by the company ERGs (Employee Resource Groups).
There is more focus on feeling comfortable in the workplace, with things such as standing desks, comfy seating and remote working having been introduced in recent years to keep staff happy and motivated. The modern workplace is all about social collaboration and rising tech trends.
A modern workplace culture should be a goal for every business. It’s a sign of a forward thinking, open minded organization that has engaged employees. This engagement filters through – and has a positive knock-on effect – with customers. Happy staff deliver better results to customers!
