The era of an organisation existing in a single shared physical location is over. Going forward, hybrid spaces will dictate how we collaborate, connect and build social capital. Ensuring that everyone has the right tools, software and equipment whether they are in the office or not will be key to success in a hybrid working world. 

  

Top 3 take outs: 

  1. Design for people who aren’t in the room using Microsoft Teams Rooms with intelligent cameras and inclusive features to create the most seamless hybrid meetings possible. 
  2. Make the return to office as safe as possible for those who choose to come in, with tools such as Microsoft Vaccination Management, custom low/no-code apps built with Microsoft Power Platform and Microsoft’s ‘Return to the Workplace’ solution. 
  3. Transform your physical spaces into intelligent, cloud-powered services by embracing “facilities-as-a-service’ using Microsoft Workplace Analytics, Azure Digital Twins, and Azure IoT to begin to turn your physical spaces into the smart buildings of the future.
