By the year 2025 Gen-Y Millennials will dominate the workplace and they will expect to have technology on-hand to help them work smarter not harder…[View as PDF]

Gen-Y Millennials want much greater flexibility of working hours. They want to work outside the traditional workspace. And they expect the best tools for collaboration. Critically they are all comfortable working with a multitude of consumer devices. Smart and successful organisations will find a way to work with these tools and empower millennial expectations.

Intergen illustration #1Over 60 percent of companies know that consumer devices in the enterprise (CITE) are impacting positively on productivity, process efficiency and collaboration. Sixty-three percent believe this will have a positive impact on process efficiency and collaboration in the next 12-18 months.

Online consumer services like Skype and LinkedIn are also having a significant impact. How we adopt and use these tools to keep up with CITE and millennial trends, and ensure user-centred satisfaction will determine our capacity to attract and keep productive staff.

Everything revolves around empowering people. Giving them easy access to self-serve, transact and get the job done from anywhere at any time is key.

Your workplace isn’t working if people say yes to any of the following:

  • I can’t find relevant information quickly and easily.
  • I can’t access or take information with me when I’m away from my desk.
  • Information is out-dated, duplicated or just missing.
  • We have too many silos of information such as email, network drives, and various other systems.
  • There’s too much old, legacy information out there cluttering things up.
  • Our information is not as secure as it could be – I’m not sure who has access to what.

PGG WrightsonTypically we find business critical information (e.g. customer billing details, health and safety incidents) is well managed. But support areas of the business (i.e. the other 90 percent) are woefully neglected, with a heavy reliance on unstructured network drives, email and legacy technology.

It’s not productive, and it puts the organisation at risk.

This guide illustrates many of the lessons Intergen has learned from working with some of New Zealand’s most innovative and productive organisations.
