The workplace has changed: working at home is mainstream. No longer just for boutique consultancies or a perk for over-worked senior executives forced to “catch-up” on a Friday. The pandemic propelled organisations to enable Working At Home. And now that the genie is out of the bottle – many don’t want to go back.
In practice, employees have experienced the benefits and organisations have seen the potential for cost savings. And yet, there are challenges. Employees miss the social contact and business leaders are concerned about culture, knowledge transfer, innovation and the long term impact on productivity and staff retention rates.
The team at Digital Conversation is tackling those concerns. We integrate enterprise tools into customised spaces on the Gather platform; helping organisations provide virtual office space that mitigates the risks of home working.
