Unlock the Future of Work: The Context for Change

What are the hurdles that companies face in the modern world of work? A new Brivo report brings together what is happening with hybrid work, digital transformation, building security, data collection, and connected technology ecosystems to provide context for the changing workplace.  

In this report, Brivo shares research findings and trends that confirm hybrid working is going to be an expectation employees have in the future. Company leaders need to get on board with delivering a high-quality hybrid experience to attract and retain their staff. The hybrid work model is here to stay.  

Many organizations are undergoing a digital transformation to accommodate modern hybrid ways of working. During the pandemic, companies invested swiftly and, in some cases, heavily in technologies to allow employees to continue to collaborate and connect. But now the implications of this investment are becoming apparent as many of these disparate technologies are not aligned and do not integrate into the wider digital ecosystem of the office building.  

Security, both online and in-person, has become a more complex issue in recent years. Without the reliance on closed internal networks and physical security teams being present in a building, there are more concerns about how companies can reduce the risks that come with hybrid working. Building security requires integrating the digital systems that support hybrid working with building access control to create a safe and secure entrance, and an enhanced and seamless experience for the user. 

Physical security data collection helps organizations understand how systems function and enhances overall property security and operations. When security solutions integrate seamlessly with other technology systems the data collected in different arenas becomes incredibly useful. This leads to data-driven decisions that improve policies, identify threats, and reduce operational costs.  

What are the minimum requirements for a connected technology ecosystem that adapts to hybrid working? The landscape of digital transformation alongside hybrid working is complex. When people choose to go into the building, they must be able to do so efficiently and safely. With an inconsistent flow of people in and out of the office, organizations should establish access control firmly at the center of their plans for digital transformation. Access control for buildings needs to be seamless for the user, simple to manage for the facilities teams, and capable of providing critical insights into who is in the building through data collection.


The full report explores these five critical areas in detail and provides guidance to companies embarking on the hybrid workplace journey. Using a research-based framework, companies can identify where they are on their journey to digital transformation and hybrid working. Learn how access control is critical to unlocking the future of work and providing a better experience for employees.
