HOW WILL YOUR OFFICE EVOLVE? Ricoh knows how..

Office evolve

Earlier this year Ricoh surveyed employees from a range of industries – including financial services, healthcare, education and the public sector – and discovered how they expect their workplaces to be dominated by highly sophisticated technologies that will drastically change the way they work. The study highlighted some interesting predictions from employees, with the majority anticipating the arrival of a tech evolved workplace that will make use of innovations such as augmented reality, desk-based robots and drones. Of course, it is difficult to predict with certainty how companies will embrace such technologies. Yet considering the number of emerging innovations, all of the following seem capable of transforming the way businesses operate.

Modern officeThe creation of an office that feels like home or a recreational space – as pioneered by tech-savvy start-ups – is becoming an increasingly popular concept. Organisations are building workplaces that employees want to spend more time in, where leisure activities are encouraged in a bid to increase productivity. However, as mobile networking and information sharing become even more sophisticated, the idea of working together may transition from physical to digital interaction. Here, time-intensive tasks would be carried out by virtual colleagues. Wearable technology, holograms and other advances would mean that instead of ‘living’ at work, people work as they live.

Ultimately, the workplace of the future might end up not being an office at all. Many millennial workers have already instigated a shift towards more flexible, mobile working habits, leading to a predicted reduction in office space. This demonstrates a heightened need for organisations to review and adapt their traditional ways of working, paving a more agile path to benefit from future digital innovations. A key part of this is the optimisation and on-going assessment of core business processes, along with the need to retire legacy systems while embracing newer and more advanced technology.
