Your business is being transformed digitally. For a moment, focus on the service experience your customers expect and the collaborative environment your workforce demands. Because the future of work is not just about rethinking technology. It is, fundamentally, a cultural and organizational transformation with employees at its heart.
By 2021, 79% of jobs in Hong Kong will be transformed. 60% of the workforce will be redeployed to higher value roles, or re-skilled to meet the needs of the digital age.
The pace of digital transformation has accelerated across Asia, but many organizations have reached an impasse. They are stuck in their digital journeys because various challenges are holding them back: a lack of skills, the difficulty of adopting digital collaboration tools and integrating them with legacy solutions, siloes of innovation, reducing total cost of ownership while adopting a cloud first strategy, outdated KPIs etc.
A successful strategy for this new work future requires a holistic transformation.
