In an increasingly connected world, smart working is quickly becoming the new normal.
It will not only help your organization to become an employer of choice – able to attract and retain the best talent – but also to optimize overall performance and costs, and to gain a competitive edge.
How to reshape the workplace to facilitate smart working?
Align bricks, bytes and behaviour
Smart working consists of 3 key dimensions: bricks, bytes, and behaviour. Each dimension influences the way people work and their productivity. For smart working to have a real impact, the 3 dimensions need to be aligned:
BEHAVIOUR FROM a change-averse, presence-oriented, top-down hierarchical culture TOWARD a result-driven culture that is open to change, and values choice, leadership, autonomy, responsibility, collaboration, team agreements and the role of the manager as a coach
BRICKS FROM a physical work environment that is not a good fit and where people have to go to TOWARD a flexible, activity-based office, where people want to go to:
– Office = meeting place
– Right-sized, with a balanced mix of private and shared areas
– Co-created with users
BYTES FROM a low-tech work environment lacking user-friendly collaboration and communication tools and providing limited data and information access TOWARD a digital workplace that provides the workforce:
– Consumer-grade collaboration, document-sharing and communication tools
– Full mobility support and quick access to data and information, anywhere, anytime
