As enterprises put their hybrid work plans into effect, most are having to reconsider what the fundamental purpose of the office is– and the answer will be unique for each organization. To succeed, each work environment must align with that enterprise’s culture, which means that broad-brush edicts like, “everyone comes in 2 days a week”, or “all of marketing comes in on Monday” are unlikely to stick. That in turn makes your job of providing consistent and appropriate communications and collaboration tools and services in the office that much trickier. In this session, a leading industry analyst will share findings from his research into the top challenges for key stakeholders in your organization as they implement hybrid work; core tenets required to address these challenges; and where to focus your efforts when building out the technology to support your hybrid playbook.

Takeaways:

  • What technologies form the foundation of any strategy for supporting hybrid work in the office?
  • How do you build flexibility into your technology strategy for supporting hybrid work in the office, so that you can adjust as your enterprise goes through the inevitable trial-and-error in its plans and policies?
  • What key stakeholders must IT/communications decision-makers work with on an ongoing basis as the enterprise’s hybrid work strategy evolves?
  • What technology investments are the riskiest in terms of stranding costs with equipment and services that may wind up not being needed?
