Technology can have a profound impact on employee productivity. As companies grow and expand—they must be able to provide the professional accommodations needed to succeed in all workspaces regardless of location. Today’s changing office environments requires companies to cater to the needs of both in-office and remote employees. Implementing advanced technologies can help to establish a cohesive company culture for all employees.
Adaptation is required for sustained business growth and success. Failure to implement adequate technological innovations can make employees less productive while wasting valuable human resources.
Using Modern Innovation to Fuel Employee Productivity
Technology can be a tremendous tool for driving productivity and efficiency within organizations. As company cultures continue to shift towards remote operations—implementing technological advancements that cater to the needs of all employees is critical.
Many organizations suffer from outdated technologies and ineffective workplace infrastructures. As more employees now work from home—placing a heightened emphasis on a dedicated remote workforce is more important than ever.
The beauty of innovation lies in it’s distinct ability to create positive workplace culture with the help of modern technology. Let’s take a look at how one company used stylistic aesthetics and innovation to establish a collaborative office culture.
A Company’s Growing Pains Help Create Roadmap for the Future
Happy Money is a fintech company that has helped individuals improve their financial habits since 2009. The business recently underwent a massive physical expansion to accommodate the organization’s continued growth and development. As part of their strategic approach—they aimed to design an optimal workplace environment to improve employee creativity and morale.
Prior to expansion, existing equipment lacked the technical capabilities needed for organizational growth. Microphones and insufficient hardware caused employees to become frustrated with menial tasks. Lack of continuity amongst technologies created additional stresses for employees and leadership alike.
Remote employees also suffered from a lack of collaboration with in-office workers. Happy Money sought to develop innovative solutions that would encourage a communicative environment for all employees. They hoped that technology could help to establish a workplace environment suitable for continued growth and success.
Spinitar was able to use their years of AV integration experience to step in and create highly functional yet sophisticated and innovative technological solutions.
