The next generation of mobile is on the way—and sooner than we think. With lightning-fast mobile speeds, improved reliability, seamless connectivity and more, consumers and businesses alike can expect a dramatic transformation in the way people work.
As mobile networks of the future take shape, tomorrow’s workforce will increasingly leverage cutting-edge technologies to simplify and accelerate work—from meetings via hologram or virtual reality to AI-enabled tools that boost efficiency across a variety of tasks.
Many changes are already unfolding for today’s workforce, driven by employees who value engagement and productivity on mobile platforms, both in the office and at home. Organizations that fall short in redefining their workplaces and tools to meet employees’ evolving preferences will be left behind in the transformation.
According to a recent Deloitte report, businesses that promote a thriving digital workplace often reap significant benefits and positive business outcomes: increased productivity, a boost in employee satisfaction, improved workforce acquisition and retention, and more.
Paul Miller, CEO of Digital Workplace Group and co-author of The Digital Renaissance of Work, explained that the ability to be fully mobile—with or without Wi-Fi—makes work considerably simpler and more flexible. “Getting work done wherever we are is a game-changer,” he said. “We have aspired to this and 4G has certainly helped, but much richer and faster flows will make ‘Have you got a Wi-Fi password?’ less and less necessary.”
