What Causes Chronic Busyness At Work?

What Causes Chronic Busyness At Work?

A deluge of emails and meetings, coupled with an ever-growing to-do list at work, are keeping working professionals constantly busy. Mobile technology, which lets workers do more even when working from home or on the go, also contributes to an overbearing workload. It’s almost as if there’s always too much to do; almost 1 in 2 employees in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Malaysia are dissatisfied with their work-life balance. However, this busyness doesn’t always translate to productivity. What’s more is that employees—your most valued resources—aren’t just paying the price of chronic busyness with their time; this impact the bottom line as well.

Digitisation, Digitalisation and Digital Transformation Aren’t The Same Thing

What is the new digital age, and how does it change the way we work? For some, this refers to the advent of disruptive forces—mobile, big data, analytics, cloud and social—that are impacting enterprise technology and altering consumer expectations. But simply steering ahead of rapid changes isn’t enough; instead, businesses should consider adopting these very technologies to better engage their customers and embrace this digital revolution. That’s why digital transformation is now the buzzword hanging on everyone’s lips. It’s gradually being adopted by both smaller, nimbler businesses and larger, more established enterprises. Smaller offices are tapping on digital transformation to stay agile, while bigger companies use it to sharpen their competitive edge. In …

But more than just ramping up their investments, businesses also need to make sure that the value of digital transformation is understood across the organisation.

Why it’s increasingly important to have a Growth Mindset

Why it’s increasingly important to have a Growth Mindset

Artificial Intelligence, robotics, quantum computing… the latest technology trends are enough to make your head spin, but the technology of tomorrow is not as scary as you think and much of it is already being used today.

Future of Work 2023: What it means to your school

The transition to the future of work The transition to this future work environment, as with all big changes, is …

In our series of posts on the future of work in 2023 we have discussed the future worker and future workplace. The last of the focus areas we have identified is future work processes. Changes in future work processes will have an impact on how the future worker works and on the composition of the future workplace.

Future of Work 2023: The Future Worker

What does the future of work in 2023 look like? To explore this question, Fuji Xerox has divided the future of work into three focus areas: the future worker, the future workplace and future work processes. We will dive deeper into each of these concepts through a series of blog posts. This post focuses on the future worker. What will the future worker do? This is the million-dollar question. There is a great deal of discussion about the Gig Economy, specialised contracts, evolving work models and artificial intelligence taking over the workplace (if not the world!). But is this picture of future workers as short-term, specialised humanoids accurate, and will it happen by …
