Historically, the phrase ‘office workers’ has been a shorthand not just for where people were working, but the type of work they were doing – information-based and, over the last two decades, performed on computers.
In recent years, the concept of office working has evolved again. Instead of being tied to one location, organisations are increasingly allowing employees to work anywhere, provided that they are still productive.
Many of our customers are moving towards this hybrid working model long-term, combining several types of workspace: from a central or satellite company hub, to employees’ homes, to shared co-working spaces, to the train carriage or departure lounge while travelling.
As hybrid work becomes increasingly common, the question on IT leaders’ lips is evolving from how to enable work outside the office, to how to optimise it to make it as productive as it can be.
Below, we explore four frequently asked questions from organisations looking to maintain and accelerate productivity in a hybrid working environment, and explain how Canon can help address them.
