Benefits of Agile Working
The Coronavirus pandemic changed a lot of things about the way we work. Businesses had to be responsive and adapt to change quickly in order to survive the lockdown rules. Agile working has now become the new normal, with more people than ever dividing their week up between working from home and working from the office. Other than employees avoiding their morning commute, what are the other benefits of agile working?
Less Office Space Required – Save Costs
If your staff are working 2 days a week in the office and 3 days from home, for example, do you really need an individual desk for every employee? You could implement a cloud desk booking solution like GoBright, which provides employees the ability to book an available desk right from their phone before they arrive. Not only does hotdesking save costs by reducing office real estate, but it can also encourage employees to connect and collaborate with other members of staff that they normally would not coincide with.
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Following on from the last point, fewer employees in the office means less power is used, whether through plug sockets, lights, heating, or even the kitchen appliances. Not only that, but if employees are commuting into the office less frequently, they will be using their cars less and burning less fuel.
If you want your employees to be motivated and efficient, providing an optimal working environment and the right tools to perform the job effectively is essential. Studies show that employee morale increases in a newly refurbished office environment, and it is more enjoyable for them to come into work when the workplace is modern and fresh.
All Communication in a Single App
With all of the different communications platforms available, it’s easy to become overwhelmed and lose track. Communications tools like Microsoft Teams, allow employees to chat, voice and video call, share files and collaborate effortlessly whether they’re in the office or at home, boosting teamwork and communication throughout the business. When it comes to outbound communications with customers, you can provide employees with a single app to manage calls, emails, live chats and social media, so it’s easy to stay on top of customer queries.
