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 organizations 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 optimize 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.

Organizations embrace new ways of working

Research by McKinsey* has explored the impact of digitalization 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.
