Dell and Intel Future Workforce Study Provides Key Insights into Technology Trends Shaping the Modern Global Workplace

“Advanced technology and collaboration has significantly grown in importance, especially as millennials are entering the workforce,” said Julie Coppernoll McGee, vice president, global marketing and communications, Intel. “As the research outlines, we’re seeing this generation play a vital role in the direction of employer decisions, and is leading the way to influence the adoption of emerging tech, strong communication tools and flexible work environments. A technologically modern workplace is necessary to create a productive, happy and capable workplace for everyone.”

Supporting Quotes:

  • "The Future Workforce Study underlines the significant cultural shift taking place right now in how individuals approach their professional lives and their desired office experience,” said Jon Slavet, General Manager, WeWork. “At WeWork, our members demand an experience that provides substance and meaning and the ability to collaborate in a thoughtful way, either commercially or for the greater good, with their neighbors. From start-ups and entrepreneurs to large companies like Dell, WeWork provides a beautiful space, thriving community, services and amenities that encourage collaboration, contributes to the community and allows our members to achieve their goals. This research points directly to the need for a fresh, more digitally focused approach to workplace collaboration.”
  • “The massive changes that are occurring in the workplace are like a tale of two cities; those companies that are modernizing, especially with mobility, will attract and retain top talent, those who don’t will create employee frustration, lower productivity and employee unhappiness,” said Bob Egan, Chief Analyst, Founder, Sepharim Research Group. “The Future Workforce Study discovered that millennials are driving massive changes in how and where work gets done, use multiple devices, and prefer to work up to 60 percent of the time away from a traditional office. The result is an important mandate for CIOs to modernize the infrastructure, redefine their security perimeter and device provision strategies.”
