Digital transformation is a topic noted mostly by how a business talks to its clients. However, an employee has to have the right tools to be able to make that interaction better. Transforming the workplace into an environment that makes an employee productive and upbeat creates a better customer interaction. That environment can be moved to a virtual workplace, or simply making changes to an existing office. Here are a few ways companies fail in creating efficiency within their workspaces.
- Underutilized assets - Oftentimes, companies have spaces that are underutlized or filled with poor equipment. Maybe it's a room filled with outdated items, an efficient layout or even bad heating and cooling. By upgrading your spaces to include the software, hardware and tools your employees use elevates the employee to work harder.
- Lack of available resources - In a traditional office conference rooms are oftentimes tied up. Being able to add a conference option with collaboration tools, gives an employee the tools they need when they need them to get the job done.
- Failure to leverage the BYOD trend - Employees like using their own tools like their cell phone or tablet. Companies that do not allow an employee to bring in their own device are creating an efficiency within the business.
