What is Microsoft Modern Workplace?
Microsoft Modern Workplace solutions are the latest suite of Office 365 cloud solutions. Only this time, Microsoft has gone one step further to ensure that end-users can work from remote locations without posing a security risk to the sensitive data of your business.
The lead idea behind Microsoft Modern Workplace is to maintain the flexibility that modern employees need, but with layers of security that is currently lacking in most remote working setups.
Remote workers want to be able to access files on multiple devices – and sometimes that will mean their personal handsets. The latest generation of Office 365 tools enables you to securely manage business-owned devices together with employee devices.
With the rise in cybersecurity attacks on employees working from home – especially during the global pandemic – there is a renewed focus for businesses to provide cybersecurity support for virtual teams.
Eliminate the following problems with Microsoft Modern Workplace:
Say goodbye to poor communication
Communicating across disparate channels can lead to a lack of visibility, control, and misunderstandings. But Microsoft Modern Workplace will make sure communication is clear and focused.
No more awkward processes
No more need for two or more systems for one job. Re-keying data, increasing the potential for error. Low-level tasks are performed manually because of a lack of automation. You can say goodbye to all these inefficient processes. Microsoft Teams will save the day.
No more data in silos
With Microsoft Modern Workplace you don’t have to extract and reconcile information, it’s all in one place. Critical data spread across numerous programmes results in limited insights and a lack of trust in the data.
Constrained to certain devices
With Microsoft, you are not constrained to certain devices. For example, legacy systems can’t be accessed via mobiles as they’re incompatible or present security risks. With Microsoft, you are implementing modern workplace technology.
Wave goodbye to cramped office spaces
No more frustrated employees
Employees become frustrated when they are not equipped with the right tools to do their best job. Improve employee productivity and satisfaction with Microsoft Modern Workplace.
Make your IT department happy
Your IT team is spending too much time on trivial support issues, such as password resets rather than adding value. With Microsoft Modern Workplace there are fewer time-consuming glitches and hiccups which means they can spend time on the things that really matter. Improve productivity, collaboration and employee engagement.
How Microsoft workplace benefits remote workers
Microsoft’s modern workplace offers a better employee experience
Microsoft 365 includes new platforms, tools, and apps to nurture employee well-being, connectivity, and learning in the digital workplace. With the launch of Microsoft Viva, the company’s new employee experience platform, Microsoft is betting on the future of remote work and the importance of creating a virtual company culture built around flexible work models.
Microsoft’s modern workplace promotes more effective collaboration
At its core, Microsoft’s modern workplace is about enhancing employee productivity, enabling seamless collaboration and communication, and streamlining workflows across locations and platforms. The technology that enables all of that is within Microsoft 365. Through the seamless integration of Microsoft 365 apps and services, users can collaborate better together and embrace modern workplace strategy. Microsoft Teams is the perfect example of effective collaboration.
Microsoft’s modern workplace automates time-consuming tasks
Another top motivator to go modern is Microsoft 365’s Power Platform—a group of products that enable users to develop, build, analyze, and automate business processes. They are incredibly helpful in streamlining workflows and boosting efficiency. But you need to be using the modern SharePoint platform to leverage all their available capabilities.
Microsoft’s Power Platform includes Power Automate (a cloud-based service that helps users create automated workflows between their favourite apps and services), Power Apps (a custom app builder), Power BI (a data analysis tool), and Power Virtual Agents (a no-code chatbot builder).
Power Automate, previously called Microsoft Flow, is a popular tool for streamlining everyday tasks. And you don’t have to be an IT professional to use it. Employees can use Power Automate to create all sorts of time-saving flows, from automatically saving email attachments to managing SharePoint approvals.
Microsoft’s modern workplace is scalable for remote teams
Distributed work is here to stay, and organizations now face the challenge of finding a scalable way to maintain a well-managed and secure digital workplace. By leveraging self-service functionality in Microsoft 365, IT can empower employees to create the resources and tools they need while avoiding the time-consuming gatekeeping of a fully locked-down system.
