Today’s business culture no longer follows the traditional five days in the office that we were all accustomed to for a long time. The evolution of a hybrid working environment has altered how and where businesses of all sizes from all sectors work.
At Ericsson-LG Enterprise, we believe a connected world is a better world, which is why we create solutions to transform business communications and match the demand of businesses that want to create freedom, autonomy, and opportunity within their teams.
More now than ever, business communities work together from anywhere whilst still achieving outstanding productivity and communication.
Together with our global partner community we are helping organizations to achieve great things with hybrid working.
The rise of the hybrid work environment
Organizations around the globe are realizing the benefits that hybrid working offers. In this section, we will discuss the benefits, the challenges, and how iPECS solutions can create a successful hybrid environment.
The benefits of hybrid work
Hybrid work offers flexibility, both for your business and your team. Growing numbers of workers expect the option of hybrid work, because it offers greater work/life balance. This means that it improves team morale as well as expanding a business’s recruitment options.
Some employees will work better at home than in the office, at least for certain projects that require focus. With the right policies and technologies in place, hybrid working environments can be even more productive than strict, office-only workplaces.
The challenges of hybrid work
All businesses depend on good internal communication and workflow. Without careful planning, hybrid work can make this more difficult. For example, in some offices, important updates are shared informally and in person. If some people are working from home, they need to be included.
Deciding to follow a hybrid working model and implementing it successfully can be two very different things. To maximize the benefits of hybrid working it takes careful planning and execution. Businesses need to take deliberate and precise measures, investing in the right tools and support to achieve success.
Through our innovative iPECS solutions and knowledgeable community of partners, we are enabling businesses of all sizes to achieve successful hybrid working.
iPECS Cloud incorporates all the features users would expect from an on-premises phone system and delivers them through the cloud. With one-size-fits-all scalability, our cloud solution expands with any size of business and team, supporting hybrid working environments of all scales.
Our mobile app and WebRTC client, iPECS ONE, offers even more advanced tools to connect teams and enable effective collaboration.
