The merger of humanity and technology has been the highlight of the new normal on the work front. This merger had made the extended and unplanned work-from-home phase simpler to a great extent. But as society is rolling back to its pre-pandemic pace (of course, with certain health-related restrictions), we have started living in the ‘next normal’. And this next normal is all about workplace automation; the one that we call “Workplace Automation 2.0”.
Before delving deep into the technicalities of this automation-driven workplace, let us ponder over –
- The new values that our organizations should have
- The proper utilization of time and effort that automation would save
Doing so will help us reimagine and recreate the culture of our automation-driven workplaces. Workplace automation 2.0 is here to multiply our benefits and make work more undemanding, agile, and engaging.
Restating commitment for growth
Employees previously were often so overinvolved in work that there was hardly any time for personal growth. Automation is blowing velocity into work. Due to automation, the working professionals are freed from monotonous and low-value jobs and allowed time to reskill or upskill themselves. Automation is accelerating professional growth. It is here to prioritize strategic moves over the administrative ones and smart tasks over mundane data collection.
Workplace Automation 2.0 will eliminate the busywork, unmask the hidden employee skills and promote career advancement.
Advancing a learning culture
Automation has become the core of post-pandemic workplaces. The crisis has spurred the introduction of path-breaking technologies like never before. This new-age smart workplace demands quick and continuous learners for integrating those technologies into business.Besides, the ability to take up the agile way of working and innovating is here to prepare workforces for future crises too. All you need to do is create a supportive environment for your employees to keep learning.
Advancing a continuous learning culture in the era of Workplace Automation 2.0 will give birth to a valuable and knowledgeable workforce.
Every crisis comes up with possibilities and innovations, and this time it is “Workplace Automation”. It has enabled leaders worldwide to reconsider the pre-pandemic workplace culture and transform it for a smart present and dynamic future. So keep refining the various facets of workplace automation for the “smart future of work”!
