Technology in the workplace: beyond the information age


The Information Age has seen us embrace technology and the resulting data – collecting it, analysing it and converting it (with greater or lesser success) into strategies and decisions that deliver real benefits. In part, this is why the era we are currently living in is defined as the ‘Information Age’.

In facilities management, for several years the discussion has been around the opportunities that the power of technology offers to change much of what we do for the better – more of the right information faster, more insight into problems and solutions, more efficient use of resources, better outcomes, better personal experiences.

Going beyond the Information Age, will lead us to an era when machines will ultimately be smarter than people, though it is hard to determine how far into the future that will be – especially for FM. This new era, already defined as the Imagination Age will see creativity become a primary creator of value. We all have the opportunity to collectively imagine, create and define the future we want to inhabit and work in, before it arrives and we lose much of the chance to shape it. We are already experiencing how the pandemic has fast-tracked how, where and when we wish to work, and how the workplace needs to respond, to be transformed and to provide an environment for collaboration and creativity, despite the notable resistance by some organisations to invest into the future.
