Future ways of working
Technology is evolving rapidly, customer expectations are changing and by 2020, there’ll be five generations of Australians in the workforce.
Successful companies are significantly changing the way they work to adapt to this environment – and we want to be a leader in personal productivity, innovation and collaboration.
We’re constantly reviewing the way we work, whether it’s our tools, technology, workspaces or mindsets. Future Ways of Working (FWOW) is about unleashing the potential of our people. It gives us the opportunity to create, connect and collaborate in new ways.
Here are just some of the ways we’re incorporating FWOW:
- We’re leading the way in how we think about when, where and how work gets done. It’s important to us that flexible working and mobility mean choices for our people to live and work how and where they want to. Our people have access to a range of the tools they need to work flexibly – laptops, access to a smartphone, teleconferencing, video conferencing, cloud collaboration, remote network access, support services and apps. Flexible working is supported by our All Roles Flex initiative, which means it’s something we’re open to considering for all roles.
- We embrace internal social media to encourage honest and open community dialogue and rapid internal collaboration. Yammer is our enterprise social tool to help us connect, collaborate, find expertise and get things done in a faster and easier way.
- We’ve introduced activity based working in many locations. Our people can work and collaborate in innovative, shared spaces. Over time, our workplaces will look and feel different, accommodate different working styles, and create the atmosphere for different outcomes.
