Hybrid Workplace Solutions

Helping staff work smarter, at home and in the office

Because today’s workplace is everywhere

The post-pandemic world is a very different place. Many organisations and their employees have pivoted to a more flexible blend of home- and office-based working that suits today’s lifestyles. This shift to hybrid working presents new opportunities and challenges for businesses to optimise staff efficiency and productivity while helping employees’ maintain a healthy work-life balance. Our innovative, easy to use and highly scalable solutions for the hybrid workplace allow staff to communicate and collaborate more effectively, wherever they’re based.

Organisations embrace new ways of working

Research by McKinsey* has explored the impact of digitalisation and remote working on the post-pandemic workforce. Thanks to virtual meetings, up to a quarter of employees in advanced economies are now able to work remotely for three to five days a week without experiencing a loss in productivity.
