The BSRIA report, Workplaces of the Future, examines the way digital technology is changing work practices, as well as taking into account the type of functions and features that millennials and Generation Z expect in their places of work. From having the flexibility to work anywhere, to wanting fast results to show for their hard work, Generation Z are shaping new workplaces, and businesses must now accommodate them and adapt accordingly.
The study emphasises that millennials and Generation Z have grown up in a technology-influenced world – and they expect their workplaces to be a continuation of that. Younger workers want the ability to experiment and have fun within tech-filled offices, leveraging innovative solutions to make their working lives easier and more productive.
IQTimecard is just one tool helping to drive this change and supporting certain companies adapt to the future. It is an electronic monitoring solution which can enable the change for businesses across the UK. With features in place to reduce costs, streamline communication, reduce office paperwork and ensure efficient workforce management, it’s a tool for companies trying to cater seamlessly to the next generation of employees.
David Lynes, Managing Director of UniqueIQ, the company behind IQTimecard, says: “We know that the next generation of employees, which includes millennials and Generation Z, have very different expectations of their workplaces than the staff that came before them. Millennials want flexibility from their working environments, including the ability to work from anywhere, if they so choose. They take pride in their workplaces and want them to look great, and according to the BSRIA report, millennials are more likely to want instant results from their work.
“This cloud-based solution does away with paper trails, and gives workers the flexibility they need to live balanced, healthy lives in the modern world.”
The technology provides a stable foundation to allow employees in a multitude of sectors to push the technological boundaries, giving workers the ability to perform their duties from anywhere without worrying about things like whether their hours are being tracked by payroll, or whether they can communicate with their line manager.
