Microsoft for the Modern Workplace
Would you describe your workplace as modern?
As organisations and technology evolves, tech and processes can very quickly go out of date, eventually costing more time, money and effort than they’re worth. This can affect employee productivity and wellbeing, and could also negatively affect the customer experience.
In the changing times, organisations are increasingly embracing modern technologies and the benefits it has on employees and the business as a whole. Partly due to the pandemic, technological advancements have skyrocketed owing to the fact that a huge amount of our workforce is now working remotely.
How has technology affected the modern workplace and the way we work?
Technology is reshaping the modern workplace and the way we think and work.
The arrival of smartphones and chat apps has allowed teams to communicate quickly and efficiently. Apps like Zoom and Microsoft Teams allow employees to communicate with each other from their homes and even across the world - people no longer need to be in the same office to collaborate, have meetings and work on projects together.
Task and Time Management
Project management software means that managers can build and delegate tasks, as well as keep up to date with progress. Staff can schedule their meetings, time and tasks with applications like Microsoft Project Online and Microsoft Planner.
New tech can also eliminate the need for manual handling - having automated processes in place using applications like Power Automate. This means that employees can focus their time and energy on other tasks, ultimately improving team efficiency and productivity.
What are the issues in the modern workplace now?
Having a variety of software to keep colleagues connected can be fantastic,but there are also some issues that come with technological advancements.
As technology advances, it’s important to make sure everyone in the team correctly understands how to use software and applications. Employees want to feel happy and confident in their everyday working life, in order to feel confident and work to their full potential.
The lack of face to face working and interaction can be detrimental to an organisation’s success, this is also important when bringing in new members of staff.
Managers can also find it difficult to monitor their team’s work and wellbeing when a workforce is working remotely.
