The move to hybrid is a massive shift for all public service and government organizations. Hybrid working technology will take the center stage in this transformation.
Today's workforce is comprised of five generations - all with different motivations, communication styles, and relationships with technology. This can become a real challenge to some government & public sector organizations, especially if their workforce is not dominated by Millenials and Gen Z. To ensure smooth adoption of workplace management solutions, employers must evaluate how easy to use and intuitive they are.
Looking into the future, many foundational workforce changes are likely.
By 2035, predicts Deloitte, generations with improved technology and flexible employment demands will make up the government and public sector workforce. These employees might not be as invested in career longevity. They will expect to work on short-term projects where they can use their skills to achieve results with verifiable evidence of social impact. Leaders must be ready to respond to their interest in flexible work and high autonomy as well as to empower them with smart workplace technology.
Research shows that the higher the Employee:Desk ratio, the higher your downsizing and saving potential is. We did the math and put all the numbers down in our ROI calculator - download it to see how much office space (and costs associated with it) you can save annually.

One of the main reasons government and public sector institutions have always been reluctant to the idea of hybrid work is security. It's easy to see how many cybersecurity dangers lie in just giving someone a laptop and sending them off to work from home, right?
However, in this age of digital transformation, secure hybrid work is now more possible than ever. With the right tools and processes in place, you can safeguard your data and systems against any potential threats.
By focusing on trusted workplace technology that offers safety, ease of use, and interoperability with other well-known tools (such as Microsoft Teams), leaders can unlock the value of a hybrid workforce while maintaining compliance with industry standards.
In this webinar, YAROOMS invited Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust to discuss how to:
• Organize a flexible return to work
• Adopt the hybrid work model in phases
• Ensure workplace safety
• Gain control in times of uncertainty
• Gain a bird's eye perspective on spending and optimisations
• Scale with the right workplace technology
Before YAROOMS, the Focus C.I.C staff, half of them working from the office, and another half - in and out, followed open seating policies. The "first come - first served" principle often resulted in overcrowded workplace and people having to go home, or settle in alternative areas, such as the kitchen.
The coronavirus pandemic has aggravated these capacity challenges, bringing the new social distancing and occupancy management regulations. Jamming up in the office canteen was no longer an option.
