Citrix: The Workplace of the Future Could Be ‘Anywhere’

A couple of years ago, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, speaking at Future Decoded in London, claimed: “Work is no longer a place you go to. Work is about making things happen where you are.”

Today, his words couldn’t be more true, and there’s little doubt we are on the cusp of a huge workplace transformation. Thanks to the phenomenal uptake of cloud computing and the move towards a mobile-first work environment, we are no longer tied to our PCs in the way that we used to be. This year we will see a tipping point in the number of companies enabling mobile working practices, and this is expected to rise to 70% by 2020. Having the ability to work and be productive anytime, anywhere, and from any device has become the new raison d’être for many forward-thinking businesses.

But the truth is that business leaders have a completely new set of workplace expectations to meet, if they want to attract the most exciting talent. 2017 will be remembered as the first full year when Generation Z entered the workforce. This is the generation that wants to lean into their high-tech and hyper-connected lives to find answers to today’s business problems. They’re ‘always on’, and they see sharing as the norm and not an invasion of privacy. They expect things to ‘work’ the first time, and if they don’t, they’ve already moved on to the next thing. It’s easy to see why innovators such as Airbnb, Tesla, and Netflix — built without the legacy of old systems and processes — appear very attractive to the brightest graduates because there’s a perception that they offer something totally different.
