Smarter Working – Technology

  Leveraging solutions that work seamlessly with employees’ needs. Technology with a single-minded purpose: A more human way to work Technology was meant to enable us, not hinder us. Unfortunately, the latter is often the case: a remote employee chasing a call, conversations dropping out and resurfacing, and high-pitched sounds coming out of nowhere. This can create inefficiencies, waste time, cause frustration, and add costs. With the Smarter Working approach, systems are integrated with the way people work to promote productivity. Today, technology is playing an increasingly purposeful, and more intuitive role in the way employees work—with flexible tools that serve people first. Moving with us comfortably and seamlessly, technology can act…

Smarter Working – Places

Designing and choosing flexible workspaces to inspire and help focus. Sometimes alone. Sometimes together. Always productive. Today, work is really more of a state of mind than a place you go to perform a task. More often, people need the flexibility to work anywhere—to be mobile and connected, to collaborate and be productive. It all comes down to preferred workspaces and work styles. In the office, an employee might choose to sit at an open desk area, or move to an enclosed team room, or a dedicated focus space. Or they might choose to work from home or a coffee shop. Whatever the choice, people are spending less time at a personal…

Smarter Working – People

  Keeping employees engaged strengthens the organization It’s never been more important, and more difficult, for people to be engaged in their work. Things move fast. People have more flexibility to work when they want. And they’re working everywhere: in the office (where it can be noisy and filled with distractions) and out of the office (where it’s often even harder to focus). But when people are engaged, it usually means they’re happier. Plus, engaged employees outperform their peers in terms of productivity, sales, energy levels, healthcare savings, and lower turnover rates. Smarter Working helps people be at their best The Smarter Working approach can help an organization enhance some of the…

New Work Styles, New Communication Needs

Say Goodbye to Unproductive Meetings!

Meetings are the corporate get-togethers we all love to hate. For every productive one, it seems there’s at least one or more that are a complete waste of time. Here’s how you can reduce the number of meetings you need to attend. We’ve all been there: You agree to attend a meeting, even though its description is somewhat fuzzy. The meeting begins, but it soon becomes clear that it has no agenda and even less focus. It quickly veers off into topics unrelated to the vague description provided earlier. We’re wasting too much time and money The management consulting firm Bain & Company found that 15% of an organization’s collective time is…
