New Work – the journey into the 4.0 world of work

This is how to support your employees in tackling the challenges of digitalization

Fit for the future of work

Digitalization fundamentally changes the entire world of work. Working from anywhere, exchanging data and knowledge at any time, meeting in virtual rooms, while using cloud solutions and modern communication tools – this is how tomorrow's working world looks. In order to work in an agile and efficient way, transformation processes are required in the company. It's high time to tackle New Work. The aim is to promote the collaboration and communication of employees.

T-Systems supports company rebuilding

Several employees are standing or sitting in an office loft looking at something on their tablet or computer.

In the new world of work, it is necessary to establish agile workflows, communicate virtually and think digitally so as to establish new business models and to adapt to the changed requirements of customers. To do this, companies must transform their organizational structures: It is essential that data and knowledge can be retrieved at any time and in any place. Team members must react quickly and flexibly to new tasks and be able to interact with colleagues. This works best in well-orchestrated, lean teams. It therefore points towards the new, open working world of small, agile cells. It doesn't have to happen overnight for this to be achieved. However, it is necessary to have a step-by-step change in culture, working processes, hierarchies and the structures as well as the implementation of flexible workplaces. We have already successfully implemented the Company Rebuilding approach at T-Systems within Detecon and we are also supporting our customers in this endeavor.

New Work: my journey into the new world of work

New working concepts such as New Work mean stepping out of our comfort zone – and perhaps our much-loved private office. Exchange instead of silo, a culture of trust instead of presence, and the support of digital tools for virtual collaboration are the pillars of the working world of the future.
