In the prevailing scenario, Technology has perpetually converted the way people across industries do their work.
From the past two decades digital evolution has improved working conditions immensely. It has augmented productivity and made working from anywhere accessible.
I am going to shed light to some of the upsides and downsides I have witnessed with the emerging technology trends.
Team Collaboration made easier:
Thanks to the virtual communication tools, it allows us to work more closely even as we work remotely. Team collaborations have been simplified. People don’t have to be present physically at the same place.
Video conferencing, meeting remotely and working on the same stuff at once with cloud based file sharing has made our life easier.
Automated follow-ups and customer service using AI messaging has outperformed the heavy lifting.
No longer need to stay at the Workplace:
Major impact of digital evolution in the workplace is the workplace itself. Majority of workplaces still ask you to work on-site, there are plenty of positions open to work remotely all over the country.
Advancements in global job hunts have given wings to our fulfillments and outlived the restrictions to our capabilities. We can freelance from anywhere. Organizations can hire potential candidates half a world away.
Efficiency and Incessant Speed:
Technology is the real boost. Employees have become systematically structured than ever before. What used to be a cumbersome tiring process is now done in seconds. Messages can be sent instantly to colleagues and clients across the world. Payments, billings and proposals can be taken care off immediately.
Some of the downsides include anxiety due to increased working hours. If you work from home it may feel like you are never out of the office. Flashing, pinging constantly draw Employees back to their jobs.
The learning curve to implement new methodologies separating employees by screens leads to miscommunication. Being glued to systems disrupts people and automated voicemails sometimes can make clients upset.
In a nutshell, technology in the office environment has encouraged productive habits. Organizations with advanced approaches may consider the gains in efficiency from technology as a reason to slow down as opposed to rushing the process.
I hope employees one day will get notified to take a break instead of handling more work related demands.
