In the past two years, most employees were forced to continue fulfilling their duties at home and work remotely. But, as the world transitions to post pandemic, the tables have turned because workers have difficulties reporting onsite fully. Some are even clamoring for a more versatile, resilient, and hybrid work framework.
With this reality, business leaders are adhering to their employees’ needs by implementing policies and rolling out digital transformations within their respective organizations to fit in with the current demands. Companies are embracing the new normal work environment – a hybrid workplace.
A hybrid workplace refers to a flexible work arrangement where employees have the freedom to choose where they want to work – may it be in the comforts of their own homes, in coffee shops, at their designated desks in the office, or practically anywhere they please – as long as they can deliver and finish their tasks.
Today, employee retention heavily depends on the ‘Work-Life Shift’ a company can offer.
For Fujitsu, the idea of the Work-Life Shift recognizes people and data as critical factors in creating and honing an up-to-date, flexible, and harmonious working environment with the power of technological advances that help workers to be more productive and collaborative and deliver better customer experiences.
Fujitsu’s Work Life Shift offers innovative digital solutions and improved workplace culture for more inclusive and agile working conditions.
Work is no longer synonymous with being onsite. Now, people are privileged to work and collaborate anywhere, anytime, and on their terms. The physical constraints of an office have paved the way for more productive and creative outputs since employees can work at their own pace, place, and comfort.
For instance, Fujitsu Modern Workspace can help ensure organizations can drive new, more effective ways of working, raise employee engagement and agility, and create a greater day-to-day experience for your people. It utilizes cloud technology to ensure that the employee’s preferred device, whether personally owned or company-issued, is secured and up to date. This hybrid IT approach is also embedded with analytics to measure its effectiveness and develop an agile and empowered hybrid work setup.
“Our Fujitsu Way principles guided us through our overnight transition to hybrid working across Fujitsu’s international businesses. Achieving this transition put our employees’ health, safety, and wellbeing first by embracing borderless offices and was critical in maintaining full operational support for our customers to exceed their expectations. Employee engagement results have also never been higher in Fujitsu, which would not have been achieved without utilizing Microsoft and Fujitsu tools to support our people,” said Raul “Cricket” Santiago III, the President and CEO of Fujitsu Philippines.
Fujitsu also developed Smart Working to maximize productivity, an approach that automizes mundane processes to allow employees to focus on more significant tasks and finish their duties faster, all of which is in line with Fujitsu’s human-centric approach.
One technology that is now being deployed to help employees become more efficient is Robotic Process Automation.
What defines a healthy, harmonious work environment? Fujitsu says it’s the company culture. Now that the line that divides people’s careers and homes is interconnected and intertwined, it’s not impossible for the workforce to feel fatigued and overwhelmed.
Fujitsu has developed the Culture Change approach. This end-to-end outlook prioritizes employees’ and clients’ health and wellness towards an emphatic, healthy, and agile Beyond New Normal workplace with anxiety monitoring, social distancing, and contact tracing solutions. This system also gears and upskills workers with vital technological knowledge in the digital age.
When companies lead with empathy, flexibility, and fairness, and employees are proficient, they become confident. Thus, the morale to continue to thrive, both in their personal and professional lives, is high, and better customer experiences are gifted to the business.
