The government will publish a Digital Transformation Plan, which aims to help improve the 'poor' levels of productivity in the UK.
Set to be published this autumn, the plan will champion a widespread approach to allow easier adoption of emerging technology to cultivate a more connected workforce.
Couple this with the globalised economy placing increased demands on the daily operations of businesses, and it’s easy to see how digital connectivity is becoming more important for companies who are striving to compete against rivals and keep their competitive edge.
“The Digital Transformation Plan will be a huge boost to the economy but cutting edge businesses are going further and deploying workplace technology as a secret weapon to power growth, productivity and to attract the very best talent. Digital transformation is vital for businesses operating in all sectors,” commented Paul Statham, CEO and Founder of workplace technology expert Condeco Software.
“Companies with global operations are recognising the need to create a digital workplace which allows for seamless collaboration and gives staff members the ability to communicate with each other easily, no matter where they are in the world.
“World-class firms are now investing heavily in workplace technology as many realise it is the key to better collaboration. A smart office can be a powerful tool in this ultra-competitive market - it can help improve the output of a business and also impress potential clients, influential figures, and future employees who visit these smart offices.”
