EXECUTIVE C-LEVEL ROUND TABLE
If 2020 was about survival amid the great remote-work pressure test, 2021 has been defined by probing, charting, and ultimately, creating, a new world of work. The inescapable idea in this new world is “hybrid work,” which will have staying power in 2022 and beyond.
But this past year has also demonstrated the challenges of hybrid work: securing a workforce that cycles in and out of the office; ensuring an even playing field for collaboration; and supporting employees through what remains a time of unprecedented upheaval, to name just a few.
The workplace of 2021 has equipped leaders with important insights to carry into the workplace of 2022. To be successful, organizations must implement solutions that help them balance what might appear to be competing priorities. But by adopting a “both/and” rather than an “either/or” outlook, organizations can be better equipped to meet the year’s challenges. After all, another major lesson of the past year has been the sheer speed at which change can — and most likely will — occur.
As hybrid work continues to be the norm, the demand on IT teams grows. Faced with issues of cybersecurity, employee enablement, talent retention and development, IT efficiency, and more.
Perhaps the greatest lesson is that leaders can no longer afford to make yesterday’s compromises — between distributed collaboration and security, IT flexibility and efficiency, employee needs and business needs. This is especially true as IT decisions strike more directly at employee experiences across the organization. After all, employees won’t adopt new security protocols that make their work more complex or tedious.
Join Citrix to understand how a streamlined and flexible technology strategy, supported by the right workplace policies and programs, organizations can rise above the compromises that defined the last two years — and win in the year ahead.
