5 Methods for Creating a Flexible Workplace

Friday, April 1, 2022

An environment that prioritizes flexibility and accommodates all workers is one in which employers deploy the right technology solutions to appeal to in-person, remote, and hybrid employees.

1. Invest in training.


Prioritize training to ensure employees truly understand how digital workplace solutions can help them efficiently find critical information and manage their daily tasks.

2. Give workers a way to engage.

Modern intranets must move beyond old-style, top-down communications tools and give staff a means to respond, engage, and interact.

3. Bring information channels together.

To achieve widespread adoption and realize efficiency gains, use an interface where files, chat, and updates are all in one place.


4. Prioritize cultural connection.

An always-on modern intranet ensures employees feel like they are part of their company's culture and remain plugged into the people, processes, and information they need to do their jobs.

5. Keep the company brand front and center.

Use technology to ensure the company's brand remains at the forefront so employees can experience the same connectivity and collaboration regardless of location.
