Work-life has changed significantly since the COVID-19 pandemic shook the world in early 2020. Remote workplaces have never experienced such a drastic increase. Yet, with more people getting vaccinated and cities beginning to open up some companies are planning to move back into their NYC offices. This requires not only implementing various safety procedures, but also looking for ways to perform activities that can’t be carried out online.
As a result of technological advancements, businesses today are able to create a healthier, hygienic, and more productive work environment. It’s no secret that new collaboration trends have rattled business operations, and it’s just the beginning.
Office Tech Trends to Keep in Mind Post-Pandemic
Having been affected by the pandemic in every aspect of our lives, a new way of working has become absolutely necessary. To that end, here are a few office tech trends designed to keep employees protected post-pandemic.
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
We shouldn’t necessarily fear robots. They are, in many ways, working for our benefit. Through technology, businesses can streamline their work processes and become more efficient. In the face of these challenges, digital workspaces infused with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are driving organizational performance, automating work, and facilitating employee focus and productivity.
A number of AI-enabled technologies will be available to businesses post-pandemic, including facial recognition, thermal imaging, virtual assistants, and speech recognition, among others. Possibly the biggest impact of the pandemic may be a speed up in the development of robots, automation, chatbots, virtual assistants, automatic cleaning services, surveillance systems, and other communications methods, both to fight the virus and to move our economy forward. The use of artificial intelligence is helping industries survive and humans getting back on track following one of the largest public health crises to date.
With the COVID-19 pandemic having increased our dependence on technology, many companies have adopted both remote and hybrid working operations. The rapid expansion of remote life arrangements has exposed massive vulnerabilities in cybersecurity and led to an increase in security incidents across business.
For decades, companies have battled information security, but with this transition, the issue has become even more pressing. However, it’s not the infrastructure or policies that need updating so much as the security vulnerabilities. Employees nowadays use their own electronic devices that aren’t protected by anti-viruses or firewalls provided by IT. Because company data isn’t secure within the company’s walls anymore, employers are unable to control who can access, locate, delete, or distribute sensitive and confidential company information.
As part of the broader initiative to improve cybersecurity, you can expect investments in high-speed network infrastructures, updated security and password protocols, and cybercrime training programs.
