Could You Be More Productive?
Automation technologies will have a major impact on the workplace in the coming years and the result will likely be far more productive employees.
Research from Konica Minolta, in partnership with research firm Future Workplace, found that HR (Human Resource) decision makers expect a greater than 10 percent increase in productivity through automation technologies.
The study suggests that generational changes are driving an evolution of the workplace experience both in the physical space and in the tools and technologies that are being used (including visitor management systems, robotic video conferencing and conference room booking systems, IoT applications and virtual desktops.)
"New Workplace of the Future technologies will increase employees' productivity and will create new jobs that we can't even predict yet," said Rick Taylor, president and chief executive officer, Konica Minolta. "We know that Millennials and Generation Z want to work in a state-of-the-art office with the modern technologies that they are used to using in their personal lives. Companies that employ a Workplace of the Future strategy will be able to attract the best talent and gain the most productivity."
