Digital adoption key to connected, cohesive and collaborative hybrid working communities

Offering the variety and flexibility that’s preferable to most employees, hybrid working is here to stay. Adopting the right technologies to offer services and tools as well as to drive a sense of community and culture in this new hybrid landscape will be key to success.

Lee Butz, CEO & Founder of District Technologies, said: “Hybrid working is here to stay. Covid has forced even the most traditional companies to adopt hybrid working, and hybrid working needs to be managed somehow. This is also where the problem arises. Managing office space is very complex, increasing in complexity with company size.” That’s where we come in. As a workplace experience provider, we pick out the flaws and offer a solution to aid this new way of working to create safe, supportive, accessible and easy to navigate workplaces through one integrated platform.

Workplace technology will facilitate a shift to distributed working. Arup tapped into this trend and proposed that employers may implement “a flexible toolkit of workplace offerings” which would allow employees to understand the facilities at their disposal, giving them the choice on when and where they work.

The report continued to explain how technology such as a workplace experience app could be utilised to create a cohesive workplace environment: “One way of making this possible is the concept of ‘digital concierges’.” The digital concierge is the interconnectivity of clusters of spaces spread over a portfolio of assets, which are governed and accessed through apps or other interactive platforms. This helps make an otherwise discrete group of spaces and environments part of a cohesive whole.”
