From a Presence Culture to a Culture of Trust – Seven Theses on Mobile and Hybrid Working
Many companies are facing the challenge of making sustainable use of the digitalisation push and retaining and strengthening the opportunities presented to employees and companies by mobile and hybrid forms of working even beyond the duration of the coronavirus pandemic. Experience has demonstrated which areas of potential for flexibility and resilience are useful here. However, this requires a transformation into an organisational and management culture which promotes autonomous and independent working. Moreover, designs for office premises and opportunities for (digital) collaboration have to be adapted and refined.
acatech’s Human Resources Working Group (HR Working Group) has addressed the issue of how good, creative and productive work can succeed on a mobile basis or in hybrid models. In this area, we can still see room for improvement if Germany also wishes to remain attractive as a location for innovation. This acatech IMPULSE publication presents
seven theses on the collaboration of the future, which we see as a proposal to the various stakeholders in the digital transformation. The theses are designed to facilitate future-oriented organisational development and to promote productivity, innovation and good working practice in Germany.
