Organisations today have a profound opportunity to build modern working environments that make work smarter, so employees can be more productive and enjoy a happier work-life balance.

Creating engaging employee experiences takes a people-first approach that leverages familiar consumer-like technologies. Powerful portable tools must be supported by carefully integrated and automated back-end technologies; reliable and secure apps; effective workflows and processes; and support to help people achieve their best work wherever they are.

Organisations that transition to modern working practices are better placed to attract and retain skilled staff; enjoy empowered employees who can focus more easily on reducing costs and raising productivity; and can more effectively cut carbon emissions and waste.

“Around 55% of employees are high performers when provided flexibility over where, when and with whom they work, versus 36% of those working 9-5 in the office.”


Employers are re-evaluating their plans. And employees’ attitudes are changing about the way productivity should be measured. Three quarters of UK employees now think workplace focus should be more on outcomes achieved and less on the number of hours worked.1 That will require trust – and 85% believe trusting staff to get the job done will be the most important quality for managers to show.1

Employees would like more freedom. And they expect the same consumer-like experiences they receive from technology in their personal lives.



As more employees migrate to versatile devices, there will be more opportunities to reinvent existing spaces into multi-purpose sections within buildings. Almost every open plan office will eventually evolve into adaptable spaces that encourage more creativity and collaboration.

Computacenter is working with organisations to reimagine their workspaces, incorporating new breakout areas and collaboration tools that involve everyone in meetings – regardless of if they’re in the meeting room or calling in from home or another location.

A new generation of Microsoft Surface devices is delivering a consistent modern workplace experience, whether it’s in the office, factory or hospital, at home, or on the move.

Organisations should take a moment to consider the way they operate; and in this uncertain world it’s not just the business model that needs to be rethought. It’s the entire way they work – and that means rethinking the workplace.

Computacenter is encouraging organisations to ask: what do employees need now, and in the future? How can automation and AI remove manual, laborious activities from workloads, and focus people on more challenging, more rewarding projects? And how best to build a distinctive, engaging workplace culture, where everyone wants to work, and everyone wants to contribute.


Technological advances in voice, wearables, and predictive AI mean traditional barriers to work are being dismantled. Corporate initiatives on improving diversity and inclusion, plus the feasibility of remote work, are also opening up positions to more candidates.

There’s also widespread recognition that having people from different backgrounds improves decision-making while making organisations more representative of the communities they serve. With new tools for workplace wellbeing and learning being developed all the time, soon every organisation will be empowered to develop every individual to their full personal and professional potential.

Two-thirds (65%) of people are more likely to want to work for a company with strong environmental policies.1



Creative thinking. Problem solving. Relationship building. In an increasingly digital and automated world, people remain essential to every organisation.
