Get Happy: Work-Life Integration
Tech. We all love it; we all use it. The excitement of waiting for the new iPhone to come out, the small pleasure you feel when one of your favourite apps gets a really cool update. How about annoying your cats from your desk at work, using an app-connected camera with laser?
If your workplace has the same or compatible devices as those you use at home, it makes it a much more attractive place to be. Nobody wants to work in a tech back-water – let’s be honest, that’s just plain embarrassing.
According to research by Kenan-Flagler Business School, “one in three Millennials said (they) would prioritize device flexibility, social media freedom and work mobility over salary in accepting a job offer.” And a Unify-led survey found that 68% of people who described their teams as “very successful” have more than half of their team members in different locations.
So, a brilliant recipe for work happiness looks a bit like this:
Good internet connection
Combine the above to produce a pretty good way of future-proofing your business. Attracting the right workforce, equipping them with familiar and favourite tools, and then giving them work mobility is a winner for all involved. A recent KPMG cloud survey report gives us this nugget; “the top 3 value drivers from mobile cloud workforce enablement are increased productivity, higher employee satisfaction and improved field service operations.”
An interesting article from Fortune.com suggests a big shift towards work/life integration – meaning that although you may not want to be on a business call at 10 pm, it’s fine if that then enables you to take a daytime yoga class you always wanted to try. It’s technology we need to thank for allowing us to have full control over both the work and home aspects of our lives.
