Hybrid working and the 

Office of the future

Hybrid working is about providing people with the flexibility to work from wherever they want.

Hybrid working models have become increasingly popular in recent years, as they offer employees the best of both worlds. Whether it's collaborating in person at the office or school, at a hospital or any other usual workplace, collaborating remotely from anywhere else, or travelling on the go, it doesn't matter. Wherever you choose to work you should have the tools to work efficiently and with flexibility.

Communicating is one area that has progressed significantly very recently, and more people are becoming familiar with and have access to video collaboration tools, such as Microsoft Teams.

These platforms allow for unified communications combining voice, data and video. This means people can communicate face-to-face even if they are in different location

The Right Tools for Hybrid Working

If you're thinking of implementing a hybrid working model in your organisation, here are a few things to keep in mind.

Firstly, you need to have the right tools in place to enable hybrid working. This includes both the hardware (headsets, webcams, speakerphones) and software (communication and collaboration platforms) that will allow your employees to work effectively from anywhere.

Secondly, you need to have clear policies and guidelines in place, regarding when and how employees can work remotely. It's important to strike the right balance between giving employees the flexibility they crave and ensuring they are still productive when working from home.

Thirdly, as well as providing the tools and equipment to work away from the office, there is a big change needed in the office too. Most offices are not equipped to accommodate hybrid working. Microsoft Teams Rooms effortlessly turns any meeting space into an easy-to-use collaboration space.

Finally, you need to provide training for your employees on how to use the new tools and platforms that have been introduced as part of the hybrid working model. This will ensure they are able to make the most of the new way of working and avoid any frustration or confusion.

Microsoft Teams Rooms

As workforces become more mobile and hybrid working continues to develop, businesses need to adapt office spaces and update technology to meet the needs of a hybrid workforce.  Employees come to the office to collaborate more, and they spend less time working alone at a desk whilst at the office.  This means offices are being reconfigured to move from predominantly working alone at a desk to collaborating in a variety of different meeting rooms and spaces.  There are different solutions for different meeting spaces and Microsoft Teams Rooms enable collaboration online anywhere, anytime using any device.
