As we enter a new era of IT, the nature of work is evolving, and employees’ needs are changing. As a result of this, businesses must adapt and equip workers with the tools and resources they need to successfully carry out their jobs.
According to HP, 72% of workers say outdated technology harms productivity, which can lead to a loss of employee engagement, collaboration, and communication. To drive organisational growth and innovation within the workplace, businesses must be right-sizing devices and enhancing end-user experiences.
At SXiQ, we’ve broken down the main benefits of keeping pace with technology advancements and equipping your employees with the right devices.
Employees within your organisation have different roles and responsibilities, so a one-device-fits-all approach isn’t going to cut it. From individual working styles to specific software needs, each device must support a unique workload.
Leveraging a device like HP’s Elite Dragonfly can help facilitate tailored experiences for employees. With four different working models – laptop, tablet, tent, and media – workers can use the device in various ways, from notetaking to presentations, it’s adaptable to various working styles and has an Intel® Core™ i7 vPro® processor. With a suite of HP security features, employees can also work in public with peace of mind knowing their device is secure and protected from common day threats.
Device selection will largely affect the productivity of your workers. With flexibility a key aspect of the modern office, businesses must be looking at devices that support mobility for employees.
Adopting a BYOD policy and embracing mobile tech is a great way to promote a flexible working environment. Empowering employees to work from anywhere at any time can improve productivity and allow them to work outside the confines of an office space. Utilising compact and light devices like HP’s Elite range can further facilitate work on the go.
Prioritising the integration of modern devices within your business allows you to maintain a competitive edge and increase growth. According to a report by Deloitte, workers prefer newer communication tools, particularly instant messaging, over more traditional forms like e-mail or team workspaces, with engagement increasing up to 87%. By developing communication platforms, your employees have a greater opportunity to work productively and collaborate, leading to long-term growth for your organisation.
Taking the time to understand your employees’ needs and giving them the tools to successfully manage their workload is key to supporting a modern office. Get in touch today and get the ball rolling on a device strategy that drives operational efficiencies, accelerates collaboration and innovation while all the time maintaining secure data.
