Office evolution: How businesses need to rethink workspaces to survive the current economic climate


Schiphol-Rijk, The Netherlands – 25 November 2020: Kyocera Document Solutions Europe B.V. encourages businesses to continue rethinking their workspaces in order to survive the current economic climate.

The current pace at which organisations have to shift, adapt and transform has presented a unique opportunity to embrace a new way of working: the hybrid workspace.  

Kyocera Document Solutions, specialists in IT solutions, devices and software says that while digital transformation was happening in many organisations pre-COVID-19, the pandemic has vastly accelerated the rate of transformation. And now, those agile, flexible organisations that transformed quickly to the first signs of change, and took advantage of emerging technologies to support their workforce, need to consider a long-term hybrid workspace strategy.

“Work is now being more recognised for ‘what we do,’ rather than a place where we go,” says Mr Scott Rankin, General Manager Sales & Operations EMEA at Kyocera Document Solutions Europe. “The evolution of the workplace has now accelerated and businesses are more receptive than ever to create new hybrid workspaces and digital-first models, which is creating substantial business efficiencies and a more productive workforce. It also meets with the expectations of many employees in the ‘New Normal’ working environments.” 

Mr Rankin acknowledges that in the past few months, many companies rapidly acquired new technologies and set up new infrastructure to support their remote workforce, which may have been right at the time, but now the challenge is to ensure these new tools and processes are effective for your teams, as well as secure.

“We’re in a new normal now and this evolution of the workforce has developed quicker than anyone expected—with organisations now looking to future-proof their hybrid workspace setup,” explains Mr Rankin.

Taking learnings from clients across the globe, Kyocera Document Solutions has developed a guide filled with information from IT specialists that help organisations ensure their hybrid workspace infrastructure is resilient, secure and will continue to benefit the organisation into the future. 

The strategic approach explains how organisations need to equip, manage and optimise their hybrid workspace. It highlights real scenarios organisations around the globe are facing and how they’re working toward better ways of working with disparate teams who split their time between home and the office.
