What is the Modern Workspace?

A truly user-centric workplace model balances the requirements of the dominant working styles of the business with different individual preferences. It facilitates ‘activity-based working’ by providing a range of spaces and gives employees the option to move between them throughout the day, according to the task that needs to be performed. 

The design may be a combination of open floor plans, communal areas, and private ‘study’ hubs where employees can work. The Modern Workspace isn’t bound by physical constraints – with the right technology in place the modern workspace enables employees to work from anywhere, securely on any device in a collaborative environment. 

Embracing both the digital workspace and the physical office, the Modern Workspace is the key to increasing productivity and lifting employee satisfaction.

Creating a Modern Workspace requires collaboration and leadership from several key team members.

If you're going to create a Modern Workspace you must consider a wide range of factors, including processes, data and IT operations, physical workspaces, digital working processes, networks and more.

 Over the last decade, the workplace has transformed dramatically. Employee's expect flexible work styles and environments, with access to corporate data from any location.

The Modern Workspace isn’t bound by physical constraints – with the right technology in place, the Modern Workspace will deliver a consistent user experience, regardless of location or device.

 Today the Modern Workspace provides a flexible working environment with the potential to significantly reduce the costs of end user computing.
