Station Upgrades and the New Workplace Reality
This summer saw major platform upgrades at London Waterloo station as 10 platforms were out of action. Many workers dependent on the smooth running of transport links faced disrupted journeys and now with the works completed commuters are still facing long delays and train cancellations.
Work is an activity that we do, not a place where we go. Is it time to take a different look at the office worker? And push the boundaries of where, when and how employees can work? Gone are the days when the vast majority of employees make the daily commute to a corporate office, sharing a communal space with colleagues on a regular basis.
To be successful in this new, virtual environment, employees need access to:
- Business applications and data. A Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) will allow workers to access applications and data securely from any device from anywhere in the world.
- Advanced communications tools. As more employees look for ways to stay connected to customers and partners on a global scale. A hosted PBX system allows them to be as productive as possible, regardless of where they are working. Take calls, answer email, and participate in meetings outside of “traditional” business hours and typical business locations.
- Collaboration spaces on any device and any network. Instant messenger, virtual always-on meeting room spaces, voice and video conferencing, desktop and application sharing, and file sharing is now a cost effective reality.
