The workplace implies collaboration. We are dependent on interacting with colleagues or external partners to solve problems and be productive. One of the main tasks for organizations is to provide employees with the opportunities to collaborate in multiple forms.
According to the Gartner Digital Worker Experience Survey, close to 80% of all workers use digital collaboration tools. The covid pandemic significantly boosted that number, and all signs point towards that such levels will not dwindle. Cloud-based collaboration tools and other technologies that facilitate collaboration, communication, and knowledge sharing set the stage for the new era of hybrid workplaces.
Gartner predicts from their findings that remote work and changing workforce demographics will lead to that in-person meetings will amount to around a quarter of all meetings, with the majority being conducted remotely. And this is a transformation that will take place over the next handful of years. These numbers tell us that how we work is changing fundamentally, and it is happening right now.
A top priority for organizations is to be in tune with societal trends regarding how we collaborate and interact at work. The importance relates to several dimensions, where remaining an attractive employer is one. To get there, it is essential to be aware of how the workplace in its current state enables digital collaboration. Perhaps some dimensions are already met, whereas others need actions to increase the likelihood of a productive collaborative climate.
