Future of Work

The percentage of workers around the world that is permanently working from home is expected to double in 2021 as productivity has increased during the coronavirus pandemic

A survey from US-based Enterprise Technology Research (ETR)

As the Covid-19 Pandemic hit in 2020, there were obvious challenges businesses had to contend with but some not so obvious. One such issue was how do you retool a company to survive in a pandemic. Our buildings, our products, services even our very way of life was never really designed for thriving in a pandemic. As such, many businesses faced a stark decision last year of either embracing digital transformation or potentially facing bankruptcy. Most if not all businesses can agree this was uncharted territory in terms of suddenly trying to work remotely and digitally, while still trying to be operational in terms of doing everything that needed to be done for the company to function.
This global “experiment” of sorts in 2020 to implement remote working has been an astonishing success. The businesses that could embrace digital transformation and meet the challenge of Covid, not only survived but started to thrive with a very strong outlook going further. They are now operating with far more productivity, happier employees, and significantly less overhead in building, utilities, infrastructure, insurance, and everything else that the old world entailed. However, there is a lot to consider as we look at the future of work. A Harvard business school survey suggests a dramatic statistic that every business owner should start to consider.

Process

Let’s face it, we just don’t things the same we did before Covid. Process maturity is a key factor for businesses to consider to not only be value-driven but to be agile. In a post-Covid era, dramatic shifts are likely and important for businesses to remain agile if they are to embrace opportunities. At MaximumBit, we have extensive experience helping to leverage the capability maturity model and other similar approaches to elevate organizational maturity. It is imperative that businesses have a set of well-defined processes that employees and cross-functional teams can follow in order to service customers and scale the operation. Remote working can become an credibly successful initiative if the right set of process framework is leveraged.

People

The number one asset your business has is its people. Since the beginning of the business, countless millions have gone into building team dynamics to help improve how people integrate together. Whether it’s CMMI, DISC, or any number of approaches to improving how teams operate, this isn’t all out-the-door with Covid. In fact, it’s more relevant than ever and an opportunity to further accelerate the successes people can have by working together. Yes, people interacting in person is always a good thing but to scale, we have to build approaches to drive similar experiences across geographically separated teams. Companies will have to change the way people are hired and trained, how relationships are built both with customers and co-workers, and how services are going to be delivered while keeping the ‘human touch. With over 20 years of experience helping with digital transformation, we can help take the guesswork out and help navigate your business through important stages, strategies, and considerations.

Technology

While it may seem like a new thing to consider, technology has been the most foundational ingredient for the evolution of businesses as a whole. Think about the days when there were no computers and mechanical typewriters were the technology of the era. We have come a long way since then. Technology has always been the backbone of business and it’s no different going forward. The right set of technologies used when, how, and where it’s most valuable can become a powerful tool for business success. At MaximumBit, we specialize in how to infuse the right combination of technology to achieve the exact solution for your business.

One of the most popular solutions even before Covid has been virtual desktops. Virtual desktops are like PCs without the hardware. They are far more resilient, faster, more secure, and scalable and the best part – you can access your virtual desktop literally from anywhere, any device over any network. This is the very core foundational ingredient for building a remote workforce. We can help you not only determine the right virtual desktop technology but how to make it cost-effective and integrated with everything else that is needed. Our team of technology experts has decades of experience in every major virtual desktop technology including Microsoft and Citrix.
