As tech savvy gen Y and Z take over from gen X, the workplace too has to change to embrace the power of digital platforms. One of the key benefits of migrating to a digital platform the positive impact it has on employee satisfaction, collaboration and creativity.
Collaborate and connect to deliver
India’s workplaces are moving towards flat structures, open communication and knowledge sharing. Empowering employees with wide access to real-time information and connecting them with an easy, powerful environment to collaborate helps create productive conversations beyond the immediate work group. It creates a platform for voicing opinions, testing new ideas and innovating.
That means better solutions, increased productivity and happier faces on Monday morning!
Flexibility is the X factor
A crucial factor for employees today is the integration of work and home environments. Digital tools that create virtual spaces, accessible from any location, help organisations offer flexi-time and work from home options. They are often the edge in retaining talent who have personal commitments. They also help organisations tap into a talent pool that is no longer limited to the city the office is located in.
The cost-efficiency angle
Digital tools turn the cost-efficiency equation in your favour. Through messaging, conferencing, cloud based tools and access to information, companies increase employee efficiency and reduce travel costs. Project co-ordination or collaboration between geographies is simplified and becomes less onerous.
Open channels, open culture
Digital communications tools aid a two way flow of communication especially among social-media savvy employees. Many companies who have adopted digital platforms report that these have been instrumental in creating a more informal, open culture. Employees across offices work more smoothly together, feeling part of one big team. Smaller companies have to compete harder for talent and a digital infrastructure helps attract and retain candidates with potential.
It is time to migrate to the digital workplace. Your employees might already have!
