A new generation of workers is behind a massive push today for organisations to embrace digital workspaces. The convenience and ability of working from anywhere, at any time is the new focus of it.

Only recently has the development of technology reached a level of maturity that gives workers the ability to work remotely from any location. But in order for governments to provide this type of working environment, they must address some key challenges such as maintaining the trust that has been placed on them by protecting the data and privacy of its people and businesses.

There are also expectations for governments to provide satisfactory delivery of service to citizens. They have to be accurate, smart and timely, whilst ensuring that the needs of its employees are also being met.

Comparisons of the standard of government service delivery are made to that delivered by the best available from non-government providers. The bureaucratic structures within governments can present challenges for government bodies who want to change and are striving for agility.

IT platforms, governance processes and organisational culture do not easily support innovation and experimentation aimed at enhancing the employee work experience. Cumbersome and frequently stove piped and dated systems and processes are often unable to meet the employee’s needs and expectations.

Being an agile government requires the ability to rapidly transform. The culture within the government must enable calculated risk-taking. This creates an environment for government to be innovative.

Through experimentation and innovation, the workforce’s expectations of service delivery can be met more efficiently, and it will increase the reliability and dependability of government services too.
