2017’s predictions highlight how application leaders responsible for digital workplace strategy will be extending flexible work options. We look at where employees work, the applications they use and how they collaborate, in the pursuit of competitive advantage and a more engaged workforce.
- Employees are more engaged if they have autonomy in how, when and where they get their work done — one of the core tenets of the digital workplace.
- An expansive fabric of technologies is emerging to analyze relationships between people, information and “things.”
- The convergence of digital and physical work environments is making new experiences possible in the office space.
- Widespread adoption of cloud office is well underway, exposing employees to new capabilities at a much faster rate than ever before.
- Algorithms that influence behavior through individual contextualization are familiar to consumers through retailers such as Amazon; these types of algorithms are beginning to be deployed in workplaces to positively alter employee behavior.
