Modern workspaces that promote flexible working environments and collaboration are now seen as the epitome of successful enterprises. No longer exclusively the possession of the Googles and Facebooks of this world, organisations across all industries are looking to redesign their office spaces in order to manage the shifting trends in the workforce and technology.
These trends include the changing nature of work, the competition over top talent and the influx of millennials into the workforce. However these trends are proving hard for business leaders to manage, not least because of the mismatch between enterprise IT and employee expectations.
The new HP Elite X3 seeks to address this problem by reinventing the way employees commonly use their desktop, laptop and smartphone in parallel, by putting the power of a PC into a smartphone. Thanks to the revolutionary Windows 10 Mobile Continuum feature, and working in combination with the HP Desk Dock and Lap Dock devices (displayed below), the HP Elite X3 acts as the core device and allows employees to display their work on different screens depending on where they are, the type of work they need to do and their preferred working style.
This eliminates the need for multiple independent devices each with their own operating system and software, which has significant benefits in meeting the demands of the modern office environment. To find out more, we'll examine these demands and how the revolutionary features of the HP Elite X3 fit in to meet employee expectations, increase their productivity and more.
Matching Employee Expectations with Enterprise IT
Millennials currently make up 25% of the workforce in Asia Pacific, a figure that is expected to reach 40% by 2020. Aside from being characterised as having high expectations of their employers and have a higher rate of attrition than previous generations, a survey by CBRE Research found that:
- Millennials want the flexibility to work remotely and sit where they want in the office, yet this is not an option for 70-80% of respondents.
- 71% of respondents said they would be happy to make sacrifices such as moving to a less attractive location or travel further to work in exchange for a better office environment.
- 21% said they would move to a similar but less well known company if the office environment was better.
