The technologies of flexibility

The watchword postpandemic is undoubtedly flexibility. It seems these days that Amazon is about to acquire MGM, the cineproduction giant that has the James Bond saga and many TV series like Fargo in its belly. Among the objectives? Offer films and contents that increase domestic use by reducing the impact of presence in the room. Content flexibility. Then Microsoft. After letting its employees work at home during the pandemic, like so many other companies large and small, the company is looking for a formula to recover without exactly returning to the origin. That is, study a hybrid solution with one part of the workers on site and another remotely. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella wrote in a LinkedIn post: “Hybrid work represents the biggest change in the way we work in our generation. And it will require a new operating model, which includes people, places and processes ”. The company has also released a hybrid work guide detailing the company’s operational changes. A guide that includes: asking employees to take time out for breaks: participating in consecutive video calls generates stress. The company encourages their teams to enable newly added features in the Outlook email and calendar application that can automatically add a break before or after each meeting; make bosses see the well-being of the people they work with as a priority; upgrade conference rooms to include devices that collect high quality audio and video for people not on site; focus on a cloud service; strengthen the security of home Internet networks; hire staff from different geographic areas; intelligently structuring meeting spaces by adapting meeting rooms to requests and occupations, for example; digitize sales using Teams as a virtual showroom to showcase products and provide personalized shopping experiences. Flexibility for Airbnb too. Postpandemic travel resumes but, as with airlines, you need to be able to book knowing you can also give up. Airbnb announced more than 100 new changes and updates to its platform with a focus on flexibility, a platform that recorded 64.4 million nights and experiences booked, up 39% from the previous quarter and 13% year on year. year. Flexibility in travel dates, first of all. New features allow users to search for a destination without a specific time constraint. This means that it is easier to search if you just want to travel and are flexible on the period of availability. And flexibility in destinations: if you are looking for something particular like a castle, the system offers you solutions that are not specifically present in the narrow search area set. Airbnb is also rolling out a faster checkout process, updated review systems, and clearer cancellation policies. Guests will receive a new guide upon arrival, providing information such as door codes, Wi-Fi instructions, and directions to the property.
