Technology is one of the main factors of the evolving workforce and in order to fully adopt and facilitate these changes, companies need to have a better understanding of the role it plays.
“When companies look for means to enhance efficiency and support workers, they would have to embrace and trust machines to take over their jobs,” said Vijayakumar Tangarasan, IWG Malaysia, Indonesia, and Brunei Country Head.
Tangarasan said that workplace automation is the most practical approach for companies, but to keep in mind that humans might be weary of these changes. This means that companies need to find the best ways to equip their workspaces for employees, which is why many firms have started taking the flexible workspace route.
Coworking firms, such as Regus, provides companies a cost-friendly, flexible work option as well as a community of like-minded professionals. Such spaces provide a seamless transition for firms to embrace Industry 4.0, the fourth industrial revolution involving automation, machine learning, and real-time data.
Overall, technology is making its mark in every industry so businesses need to work to embrace these advancements to remain competitive.
