The challenges facing the manufacturing industry have never been so profound. As the lockdowns associated with Covid-19 forced many manufacturers to confront the reality of a future in which remote working would represent the next normal, it became clear that few things are now as crucial to business resilience as the ability to access information and to collaborate without disruption and in real time. Many organisations were forced into quick fixes and drastic pivots in order to cope with scenarios in which their teams were suddenly dispersed.
Manufacturers face a constant trade-off between meeting productivity goals and investing in future growth. But never more so has there been a need to drive operational efficiency and cost optimization. By implementing digital capabilities, the sector could boost employee productivity and help their organisation to gain a competitive edge.
The Financial Times, in partnership with Citrix, were delighted to host this webinar which examined how leaders can create a future modern workplace which optimises productivity, underpinned by a culture that ensures people remain at the heart of the organisation. Gathering a panel of Chief Information Officers, Chief Operating Officers and business leaders, we discussed hybrid working models for the manufacturing sector and the role of technology to ensure businesses remain resilient, agile and adaptable.
