ATEN International, the leading provider of AV/IT connectivity and management solutions, has introduced a series of hybrid workplace solutions, under the new normal brought about by the pandemic. They include collaboration, desktop, content creation, docking, and remote access solutions which support the highest resolutions and quality for applications at all locations in any hybrid workplace model. As people begin to return to work, and organizations look forward and decide on their hybrid working models, it’s not so much that the office has changed, but the way that we utilize it that is shifting. New working models are unlikely to be a clear binary choice, but rather something more flexible. With the right types of adaptive solutions in place, organizations and workers will be able to bridge the gap between variable working arrangements and make sure that productive hybrid work is here to stay.
In a 2021 global survey by Statista, 73% of employees surveyed said they want flexible remote work options to stay post-pandemic. Furthermore, 87% of UK workers have accelerated their digital transformation projects, and 86% are enjoying the benefits of these new technologies as these are adoptions that were already in place according to research from The Workforce Institute at UKG. It’s mostly a matter of re-imagining some key core technologies that are useful for the hybrid workplace – and they are largely already available.
