Employee health & well-being
Getting ready for ‘Office 2.0’ requires organisations to build humane relationships with their employees. They should determine the employees who are in more urgent need of their support for tackling emotional stress and burnout. Additionally, organisations should address the challenges of low engagement and lack of inclusivity that could potentially hurt the culture of their organisation.

By forming alliances with partners possessing domain expertise, organisations can interpret the intricacies and scalability for cognitive automation at work.

It provides employees the autonomy to work from anywhere without organisations interfering in or invading their personal space. Also, taking care of the employees' overall well-being should be on the top of the agenda.
