Your 2021 Guide to the Modern Workplace in Australia
Make cubicle-bound working a thing of the past. Welcome the Modern Workplace: a physical and digital space designed for people to be productive, anywhere.
We are now entering the latest iteration of the Modern Workplace. People want to work where it suits them: work from the office, and their homes, and anywhere else that makes sense - rather than being bound by physical walls. We are seeing large offices shrink, and hubs for collaborative work grow. How you manage this transition period will dictate how you acquire and retain staff; how you innovate; how you compete; and ultimately, your long-term how you survive and thrive as a business. This is the Modern Workplace.

Simply put, a Modern Workplace is one where collaboration and communication technologies allow the modern office to work seamlessly, effectively and efficiently, at any time, from any place and on any device.
Even prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, workplace strategies were being reimagined due to the cusp of crucial technological changes. The legacy approach to working whereby the workforce commuted to a corporate real estate was under question for a long while. Companies were beginning to transition away from the ‘work is a place you go to’ notion to a hybrid work environment.
The pandemic merely fuelled the rate of change towards the modernisation of the workplace and the growth of the remote workforce.
Today, we are past the chasm. Work is no longer a place we go to but rather, what we do. A new era has been ushered in en masse. We are well and truly in the fourth industrial revolution. We not only live differently today, we also work differently and relate to one another differently. Underneath the surface of the apparent change, revolutionising the remote workplace and unleashing innovation is collaboration technology; the underpinnings of ‘The Modern Workplace’.
The Modern Workplace is composed of sophisticated collaboration tools and technology that better support employees to collaborate, communicate and connect with each other in a hybrid workplace.
Modern devices, powered by modern applications, are enabling new levels of workforce mobility and productivity, while enhancing the user workplace experience. The always on, always connected, always accessible workspace introduces many cybersecurity challenges and consequently superlative security measures are developing to protect organisational intellectual property.
