A more humane workspace. If it were necessary to define the fundamental contribution of a Digital Workplace, it is this characteristic that should be retained. Through it, digital technology does not only upset the temporal and spatial limits of the working environment, with company data becoming accessible from anywhere, anytime and from any terminal. Above all, it opens up a new channel of exchange, which multiplies the possibilities for employee interaction as never before.
The Digital Workplace makes the company's human organization visible and everyone, regardless of their status and function, acquires the power to speak out, to share information, an idea, a problem, a solution, interact in a business process... For the individual, the Digital Workplace is thus a vector of value, fulfilment and efficiency at work.
To bring this wealth of human interaction to life, the Digital Workplace must respond functionally to four major challenges: communication, knowledge sharing and capitalization, operational efficiency, and collaborative work. And it must do so by being able - from the employee to the organization level - to stage information and interactions, wherever they come from: productivity suites such as Office365, G Suite or Open Source, business applications, third-party tools... This is the vision that Jalios carries with its Jalios JPlatform solution.
This allows, for example, to build a Digital Workplace based on Office365, by overcoming the functional complexity of this suite thanks to the orchestration of its different tools, which it can also complete with its own functionalities. Above all, by bringing a true collaborative dimension, Jalios JPlatform moves from simple individual productivity, targeted by suites such as Office365, to collective efficiency. To the benefit of the entire organization, its capacity for innovation and its operational performance.
However, because it puts people and collaboration at the centre, the Digital Workplace induces a profound upheaval. It disrupts established operating modes and habits. It thus requires a real change management, some of whose ingredients are known: to become aware of the need to change, through the involvement of managers, a network of ambassadors, up to the final stage: anchoring new practices in the company's culture.
But how can we act on a notion as abstract as that of corporate culture? It is on this theme that Béatrice Rousset will come to discuss on November 12, during the Digital Workplace Summit organized by Jalios, around her book written with Philippe Silberzahn, "Stratégie modèle mental : cracker enfin le code des organisations pour les remettre en mouvement". The two authors propose to enter into the concrete aspects of corporate culture by identifying the mental models that structure and block it, in order to replace them with those specific to entrepreneurs.
An innovative avenue to explore in order to go further in the transformation opened by the Digital Workplace.
