Dan Arens

The hybrid work week is here to stay. In the largest study to date, Harvard Business School researchers concluded that the post-COVID hybrid work week is not only here to stay, it might indeed be an optimal solution for the employer and the employee.

Further, in a global survey of employees by tech giant Cisco, exact changes in the work environment indicated it will never be the same. Fully 57% of workers expected to be in the office 10 days or less every month. 77% of employees wanted to see a flexible work style. A whopping 97% wanted to see safer work places before they returned and a meager 9% thought they would return to the office full-time when things re-opened.

Determining the optimal work week is a significant challenge for employers. As part of the CISCO survey, fully 68% of knowledge workers (a person whose job involves handling or using information) were already working from home and going into the office, an accurate description and definition of the hybrid office environment. The primary differentiation between remote work and hybrid work is that remote work gives more freedom to the staff, while the hybrid work style allows the staff to interface with co-workers in the office.

Obviously, working from home and from the office has been around for a long time. But the pandemic resulted in the convergence of many factors that did not exist. The strengthening of cyber security has allowed most devices to transact and conduct business safely and efficiently from almost anyplace in the world. Until recently, larger band widths were not readily available. That is no longer the case. Advances in networking have provided faster speeds which have also enabled better video communications via platforms like WebEx, ZOOM, and Teams. The evolution and merging of all of these technologies has provided the perfect opportunity for remote communication to not just succeed, but to thrive.

Author Denise Lee, in a exact article for CISCO Systems, summarized the timeline of hybrid work. She wrote “Not too long ago, ‘hybrid work’ was seen as a luxury, a benefit for those who could manage their work from home every now and again. Forward thinking? Yes. Ubiquitous? No. But throw in a pandemic-induced, grand experiment of work-from-home, and suddenly hybrid work went from nice-to-have to must-have.” She went on to say, in order for a hybrid work place to be successful, an employer needs to be aware of three issues that are to be wrapped in a work environment or culture of  “accountability, trust, and discipline”.

Hybrid work is an opportunity for employees to work onsite or offsite, moving between various locations. It is a blend of being in the office or out of the office on a regular schedule, or rotating back and forth between those environments based upon the needs of the employee and/or the employer. Hybrid work conditions should promote employee inclusiveness, interaction, and stress well being. In other words, the employer and employee need to be able to establish their own meaning of hybrid work, so as to maximize the needs of the employer and the performance of the employee.

In the Harvard study, Professor Prithwiraj Chodbury concluded that hybrid work is not only here to stay, but it might indeed be an optimal solution for the employer and the employee. In citing the study Chodbury delineated the results of his study to a level of specificity that is intended to help employers deal with the nuances of hybrid work schedules.

In reviewing the Chodbury study, author Ben Rand of the Harvard Business Review, says the optimal solution is a “Hybrid schedule in which employees roughly split their workweeks between the home and office appear to work the best. These schedules allow for the right mix of flexibility and engagement that not only make the employee happier, but more productive and creative, resulting in higher-quality work……”. Overall, Chodbury sees the hybrid model as one that describes the split work week as “the best of both worlds.” According to Chodbury, employee productivity did not suffer. Actually, his results showed that hybrid workers were highly productive and happier than others.

Specifically, an employer needs to be flexible in how they establish and maintain a hybrid work schedule. The optimal work template will be based on the requirements of the job in question and the willingness of the employee to work within them.

BANGKOK -- U.S. network equipment maker Cisco Systems is looking to use Southeast Asia's digitalization push to expand its foothold in the region as demand in the U.S. and Europe cools.

Southeast Asia is on track this year to outpace China's growth for the first time, expanding by 3.2% compared to China's 2.8%. To keep that growth going, governments across the region are ramping up efforts to bring online connectivity and digital services to large areas still outside the digital fold, presenting an opportunity for companies like Cisco to cultivate new markets.

Killexams : Cisco, DICT link up to build tech infrastructure
Rainier Allan Ronda - The Philippine Star

October 14, 2022 | 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — Multinational tech giant Cisco is tying up with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) to build a harmonized, interoperable and integrated government ICT infrastructure.

The partnership will focus on enabling government agencies to implement hybrid work arrangements securely for their workers. Both sides would work to power DICT’s e-Government Masterplan under Cisco’s Country Digital Acceleration “collaboration pillar.”

Cisco will provide collaboration tools such as Webex boards, room kits and licenses as well as integrated security solutions to bolster DICT’s security posture.

ICT Secretary Ivan John Uy and Cisco ASEAN president Bee Kheng Tay signed the partnership Wednesday in ceremonies at the Edsa Shangri-La Hotel Manila.

Also signing the agreement were Cisco Philippines managing director Zaza Soriano-Nicart and ICT Undersecretary Paul Joseph Mercado.

“We are confident of this partnership. The initiative is set to enhance the government’s ability to collaborate more effectively and will greatly boost the government’s drive toward digital transformation,” Uy said.

The initiative is expected to Excellerate the efficiency and effectiveness of public service, enhance inter-agency collaboration through digitization and empower public servants to concentrate on their mandates by reducing stress levels on traffic congestion and complex platforms.

“We are delighted to further our long-standing relationship with DICT by providing them with the means to collaborate without compromising on security. We look forward to leveraging our rich ecosystem and expertise in working with government agencies globally to help build a future-ready ecosystem in the Philippines through the deployment of innovative technology and solutions, starting with our secure collaboration portfolio to power hybrid work,” Nicart said in her presentation for Country Digital Acceleration.

The partnership is set to secure a safe and comfortable experience for hybrid and remote work in the Philippines after Cisco studies reported that the majority of Filipino employees preferred hybrid work and have simultaneously learned more in this arrangement.

The studies have also shown that Filipino employees saved more earnings, fostered better work relationships with colleagues, and increased productivity through hybrid and remote work.

Killexams : BT and Cisco partner to help businesses responsibly dispose of unwanted IT equipment

BT has partnered with networking giant Cisco to launch a new programme aimed at helping businesses reduce their e-waste and achieve their circular economy targets.

The programme will see BT’s environmental specialists working with businesses to understand their goals and offer ways to responsibly repurpose old networking equipment.

Businesses are increasingly embracing digital transformation and pivoting to multi-cloud environments which often involves changing IT and networking equipment to support the move, BT said.

Businesses will have the opportunity to work with the UK telecoms leader to not only recycle their old equipment but also receive support to help them better understand their role in influencing tech sustainability.

Cisco will be leading the efforts to either reuse or recycle participating business’ decommissioned networking equipment.

The US-based networking firm will receive all shipments of unwanted equipment and promised to responsibly repurpose up to 99.9% of the equipment delivered to them. 

BT has Cisco-certified ‘environmental specialists’ working in the UK, US, Italy, Ireland, Switzerland and Singapore. They will be working with businesses in their respective regions to manage the programme.

There are more countries planned to be added to the list by the end of 2022, BT said, but the companies haven’t committed to an exact number. 

“E-waste is a growing concern and according to the World Economic Forum (WEF) now the fastest-growing waste stream in the world,” said Hriday Ravindranath, chief product and digital officer at BT’s Global unit. “Our customers and partners have made commitments to report on and Excellerate performance in this critical area.

“Creating a more sustainable, circular economy, where we prioritise dematerialisation and avoid equipment going to landfill, is vital. It builds on our leadership in sustainability and will help deliver on our BT Group Manifesto commitments and ambition to connect for good.”

In a 2021 report, the WEF said the worldwide contribution to e-waste would outweigh the Great Wall of China.

An estimated 57.4 tonnes of waste was to be discarded by the end of 2021, it said, blaming the growth of consumption and production of electronic products as the main reasons. 

There are numerous methods a business can use to tackle its own e-waste contribution such as choosing to invest in devices with software that’s known to be supported for a long period of time.

Apple has a troubled history with allegations of hardware-based planned obsolescence in the past, but the company is widely heralded for the long periods of software support.

Its mobile operating system iOS is often used as an example and compared to Android devices which often receive updates for a comparatively much shorter time, potentially reducing the device’s lifespan and increasing the likelihood they will be resigned to e-waste.

BT has been championing the fight against e-waste for some time. It launched a public appeal in August last year to encourage the general public to research recycling opportunities for unused or unwanted tech that may be lying around the house.

A survey commissioned by the company revealed almost a third of Britons (31%) didn’t know how to recycle unwanted devices, with printers proving to be the most confusing.

Killexams : Cisco partners with Microsoft to add Teams to its meeting devices

(Reuters) - Networking firm Cisco Systems Inc. will add Microsoft Corp.'s Teams messaging app to its meeting devices, the two firms said on Wednesday, offering users an alternative to its own Webex video conferencing app.

Cisco's Jeetu Patel, head of Security & Collaboration, said the company aims to be the hardware platform for a wide range of conferencing software platforms.

"The way this market is evolving is very similar to the way that the movie entertainment market evolved," Patel said, with consumers having multiple subscriptions to streaming services like Netflix, Disney, HBO and Hulu.

"There's going to be times that people want to jump on a Microsoft Teams call, they want to jump on a Zoom call, they want to jump on a Google call."

Asked whether the strategy could cannibalize market share for Cisco's Webex app, Patel said he believed the company will benefit if customers have a better experience using multiple platforms.

Webex, once a widely used conferencing platform, has lost out to several newcomers including Zoom Video Communications Inc, which was founded by an early Webex engineer and grabbed a large share of the market during the coronavirus pandemic.

Ilya Bukshteyn, vice president of Microsoft Teams Calling and Devices, told Reuters the Teams Room software already runs on several other hardware devices and will be available on Cisco devices from the first quarter of next year.

Microsoft made the announcement at its annual Ignite conference.

Patel conceded "many people have a misconception of Webex as their granddad's software" but said in the last two years Cisco has launched many new functions, including real-time translation and transcription of meetings, that would eventually allow a multi-language conversation through Webex's video platform.
