Business leaders continue to disappoint with the workplace report for the most industry and sector show the gap for digital skill. Lack of it for most of the existing employees or discovered during the new hire interview.
The very fundamental for what employers want is productivity, or in layman terms get what is supposed to do and get it done. It do not surprise to see if employee lack of digital skill and capable to perform what needed, some employer decide to replace existing and get the younger generation who is more native for digital ready or eliminate it by automated with modern technology.
The next normal or post COVID-19 pandemic world reality is all employers are to decide if they are yet to implement various hybrid workplace implementations that work for them uniquely business. Employees’ remote work productivity continues to be one area employers are concerned about. Awareness of bringing your own device (BYOD) and the various business risks it introduces as well as security awareness and how to handle various security issues that may breach the enterprise security be one of the areas for concern. This is why various secure workplaces or digital workplaces are introduced and attempt to provide answers for that.
Next normal workplace features a certain extent of remote/hybrid work to provide organisation flexibility that was accelerated by COVID-19 pandemic. Workplace perception is changing, the new reality is digital workplace, working anyplace anytime is part of the new global consent. Existing workplace physical building role is changing as the new modern workplace continues to shape as the new world challenges are introduced.
Nevertheless, despite the COVID-19 pandemic continuing with new variants, the countries enter a recovery and restart initiative. One thing for certain, the modern and future workplace is digital ready, flexible in offering at-home, hybrid, or in-office working to adapt to the changing condition and situation. It is a business requirement to make sure businesses are able to perform work regardless of the extent of working conditions to be, from border to partial lockdowns.
As more of the work is moving toward cloud and web based application workflow, the more flexible to be able to work anyplace anytime, with just an internet connected pc with web browser or even smartphone or tablet will allow you to do what is needed in your hand. That is the reason why employers require digital skills from their employees, for those who can not adapt to it, it will be very hard to get hired again. Modern workplace is project-centric, and not more day-to-day specific roles centric, as enterprises require to carry project initiative and change to have better business performance. Those who can and are capable of adapting to the modern project economy are needed, are you ready for that?
