The workplace is no longer a physical space where employees are located during regular office hours. The always online, instant access environment of the internet and other communication technologies has blurred the lines between the office and where work actually happens.
The distinction between a person’s professional and personal life has become blurred as the workplace becomes digital. Employees today communicate and collaborate in varied ways and at various locations. To enable work collaboration across the organization, employees forge productive business relationships beyond the standard work groups.
To reflect employees’ changing work experience, organizations have begun to implement a new working environment — the digital workplace. By integrating the technologies that employees use the digital workplace breaks down communication barriers and fosters efficiency, innovation and growth. The key to achieving this is in the implementation of an effective digital workplace strategy to reflect this cultural change.
