Why You Should Listen to this Talk on Workplace Transformation

Combine changing demographics, what-I-want, when-I-want-it technology trends, and new ways of thinking about work, and you have the forces that are shaping what is being talked about as “workplace transformation.”

The term carries a considerable weight — its two words implicitly promising something better than the cubicle farms that are a shorthand for the worst of office culture.

The good news is that with a little determination, unity of focus, and technology, we don’t have to settle for that kind of culture. And even a passing familiarity with business trends will confirm that plenty of businesses have evolved.

For our recent webinar on workplace transformation, representatives from Cisco and AMX by Harman offered their thoughts on why work is changing and talked about the technologies their companies specialize in and what they do to create environments where we can collaborate with those in and outside of the office.

In less than an hour, you’ll learn about the video collaboration and networked AV technology that is making it possible to create workplaces that are responsive to your needs, and to the needs of your colleagues. Some of the topics our speakers address include:

  • Importance of video collaboration
  • What is meant by a connected workplace
  • Technology that engages visitors
  • Advantages of networked AV
  • Solutions by Cisco and AMX that make improvements possible
