With cloud-based services, employees get an identical experience from their business apps and communication tools whether they’re sitting at their desks, serving customers in the field, camping out in a coworking space, or working from home or in a remote office.
Since the new COVID-wave, everyone who has the opportunity to work from home. At S&E Cloud, we’ve all settled into our homes.
The lack of closeness has probably eroded your ability to work as one big team. Members of teams do not all have the same constraints, whether theses are about family obligations, geographical distances, health measures, flexible working hours or even access to a top-quality network. And like you, we want everyone to have the same opportunities to work in a simple and efficient way.
People want the freedom to work on their own terms, but that doesn’t mean they want to work in isolation. Increasingly, employees value collaboration just as much as flexibility, and they believe that teamwork leads to higher productivity and stronger results—and research backs them up. This is especially true for millennials, the post-1980 generation that will make up three-quarters of the global workforce in just six years. A study found that 74% of millennials prefer to collaborate in small groups.
Recognizing the growing importance of collaboration, leading organizations are taking steps to reward group efforts, encourage communication and coordination across departments, and transition away from hierarchical models of management toward networks of teams. Particularly important in this evolution is the concept of collaboration equity: the ability for employees to participate fully regardless of their location, role, experience level, language, or device preference.
Capabilities like multi-language captions in video meetings, or the ability to switch between devices without downgrading the experience, help to bolster collaboration equity.
