New Work Models
Open work models boost innovation through apps and collaboration.
Making the Most of New Work Models
How and where work gets accomplished has expanded to almost anywhere employees might find themselves. Today’s collaborative work scenarios foster community and creative idea-sharing among workers who are mobile, constantly on-line and often geographically dispersed.
These trends are being fueled by an open app culture in which workers increasingly use personal devices at work and make dynamic use of apps that enable new ways of working. According to research by the Economist Intelligence Unit*, three-fourths of respondents believe an app culture will enable a broader set of inputs to influence decisions. The app revolution is also increasing employee efficiency and providing superior customer service as demonstrated by field engineers using a satellite navigation app to reduce travel time to and from jobs. But with all this openness come new privacy, liability and security challenges. How can enterprises strike the important balance of empowering users through an open-app culture while successfully mitigating risk and liability?
Create New Rules for the ‘App Culture’
It’s important to design and enforce policies that clearly communicate to employees the privacy risks inherent in using their own devices at work or using company-owned devices in ways that aren’t allowed. Creating and enforcing new rules for the app culture is a soup-to-nuts planning job that’s not for the faint of heart. AT&T creates transformative solutions that help people and technology work together in new ways while helping protect the enterprise from intrusions and new liabilities.
