Welcome to the era where living life at lightning speed has become mandatory. Be it communication or collaboration, every business is taking a quantum leap and transforming. All thanks to the advent of the digital revolution, it has made businesses think beyond the usual, disrupt conventional methods and carve new pathways, with enhanced perspectives of performance and productivity.
People and culture are the most important part of the performance of the company and ultimately driving both success and failure of the business. It is a well-known fact that the organizational culture paves the way employees behave and work which means that the office work culture ultimately decides how and to what level employees can leverage the digital workplace to connect, communicate and collaborate. The motive is to understand how employees prefer to work. You can then align a change management plan and digital workplace strategy that fits your organization’s working culture. By fostering this type of cultural change, and unifying the right technology components, the digital workplace can help us improve magnificently.

From offering speed, structure, space, security, and reliability to business dynamics and communication tasks, Email has marked its presence through its worth and importance. Also, in today’s times of flexible working and work from anywhere, it has become all the more instrumental to unleash the power of email collaboration to the fullest.

It is one of the effective and efficient ways of increasing your productivity by 10%. Here are the 3Cs that can give a leading edge, channel your team ventures, resulting in maximum output.
- Connections: Being self-subsistent does not necessarily assure effectiveness. Employees need tools that allow them to connect across the organization, leverage intellectual property and gain insight from each other. The digital workplace delivers on these objectives by encouraging acumen for culture and community within the workplace. Connections or Networking is not only important for growing a customer base, but also plays an important role for small business owners to have a space to relate with other entrepreneurs and talk about different aspects of running a business. Networking can help you brainstorm new innovative ideas, work through challenges, conduct market research and more.
- Collaboration: to solve business issues and operate efficiently, organizations require the ability to leverage knowhow across the enterprise with seamless, integrated and online intuitive collaboration tools that have the ability to enhance employees’ ability to work together. Collaboration is a powerful tool for all small and medium business owners, regardless of the industry you are in or the type of business you have. It is the connections you form with others, and the different ways you collaborate with those people you formed connections with, that will help grow business to new heights.
- Communications: as information continues to grow at an unbelievable rate, more tools exist that enable people to create their own content, rather than simply using the existing matter. To ensure the right information reaches the right audience, employees need tools that support two-way communication and the substantiation of content. Communicating by email is very instantaneous which elevates communications by disseminating information very rapidly and providing quick responses to the customer queries. It helps in quicker problem-solving and more seamless business processes. As a consequence, small business owners can achieve more in less time.
Digital Workspaces empowers employees from different geographies or segments to connect through the medium and enables them to drive their efforts head-on, build communities of similar interest, share knowledge management and collaborate in ways that are unanimous while delivering measurable business value.
