With the current work landscape brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, businesses are now called to empower both traditional in-office and remote working arrangements to continue their operations.
It has propelled industries to adapt, become more agile and digital, and exploring the possibilities of having physical and virtual workspaces.
Powering the next workplace transformation was a key pillar during one of the breakout sessions of PLDT Enterprise’s first all-virtual Philippine Digital Convention (PH Digicon 2020).
Speakers from the digital industry talked about best strategies and available solutions as they go about their workplace transformation and journey in the face of new realities brought about by the global health crisis.
“Most will have to be strategic modifications challenging traditional conventions, as we rethink current practices, enforce new protocols and leverage more on data connectivity and new technologies such as collaboration tools and workplace automation,” PLDT Enterprise Vice President and Fixed Core Business Solutions Head Gary Ignacio said.
A CEO PH Survey conducted showed that 73 percent said they will continue to have a WFH policy; 80 percent said they will increase technology and digital investments; and 40 percent believe there will be reduction in office space in the near term.
PLDT Enterprise Category Head Marc Roxas expounded on the concept of borderless workspace. This is where Beyond Fiber comes in – an all-in-one digital solution enabling businesses of any size with curated digital tools and Wifi fit for enterprise. The bandwidth of up to 50 MBPS promises a minimum of 90 percent of subscribed bandwidth at 90 percent service reliability.
Meanwhile, PLDT Senior Manager and Head for Transformative Enterprise Networking Solutions Orvin Reyes pointed out the importance of revisiting business continuity planning (BCP) for organizations.
