Heading for hybrid work in organizations: Cisco supports this transformation

What is hybrid work like?

Hybrid work is built from an approach that designs the work experience from and for the employee, wherever they are. It enables people to work onsite, offsite, and move between locations, securely accessing required data and applications, in a fully secure environment, and with flexibility in access devices.

Journey to Hybrid Work: Cisco supports this new transformation.

A scheme of this nature promotes the inclusion, commitment and well-being of employees, although challenges associated with the adoption, measurement of success, evaluation and persistence of the work culture emerge.

Hybrid working supports a mix of in-office and remote collaborators who can work at all levels of the organization. They can interact on-site or off-site, and many employees switch between those environments on a regular basis, depending on their needs.

Additionally, synchronous and asynchronous workspaces are conceived. The former promote the generation of work sessions that occur at a given time, with specific attendees, with premeditated objectives and materials. Similar to the concept of a traditional “board”, but in hybrid environments. The asynchronous spaces promoted from technological platforms allow the collaboration of the members at different times, building medium or long-term objectives, where the information persists and progress is made towards adequately segmented common objectives.

According to 88% of information technology leaders surveyed by Cisco, it is necessary to have secure remote work tools, and to protect the data of employees, officials, citizens or users, in hybrid environments and distributed teams.

On the other hand, the flexibility to work off or on site, and how often, depends on the organization and the nature of the employee’s job and job responsibilities. The pace of adoption will obviously be different for different types and sectors of organizations.

In consideration of the above, Cisco solutions and technology focused on hybrid work contribute to the consolidation of organizational schemes that support the security and well-being of the collaborator in any type of virtual space, in addition to designing physical spaces that are intelligent and sustainable to improve management and efficiency. The most relevant technologies in the integration of paradigms of this nature are those of connectivity, collaboration and security.
