Hybrid work requires more than simply collaborating and working together. It challenges technology to provide the same experience no matter where people are. Workplaces are now wherever people want them to be, but the expectations of their work doesn't change. People need to be seen and heard clearly and be productive and inspired.
"At HP, we have looked at these changes and formed a strategy to grow through our Gaming, Peripherals, Workforce Solutions, Consumer Subscriptions, and Industrial Graphics & 3D to emerging, evolving, and exciting opportunities for today and in the future", said Ng Tian Chong, Managing Director, Greater Asia at HP. "Our hardware, software, and solutions with cutting-edge technology innovations deliver the experiences needed to thrive in a hybrid world, providing the power to blend our most productive environments for work and creativity with our most inspired ideas."
The Work from Home (WFH) trend is still going strong in Thailand and hybrid working is now the new normal. With the shifts of people's working preferences in accordance with this new norm, more than 80% of Thai employees want more flexible work arrangements in a post-pandemic world. Businesses are urged to provide employees with the right tools to collectively move to a hybrid-operating model.
"The office is now 'everywhere' and the future of work is now here," said Mr. Lim Choon Teck, Managing Director, HP Thailand. "As we embrace the hybrid work and learn model, experiences will become more important than ever, and pre-pandemic technology needs to be updated to offer new ways to collaborate, create, and stay entertained. At HP, we will strive to empower individuals and businesses to be at their best and reach their full potential by providing solutions fit for the emerging hybrid model of work."
Joining the panel discussion, veteran tech expert Nui Pongsuk Hiranprueck emphasized that Thai businesses must adopt the new hybrid work model to be competitive. Talent workforces want the right and hassle-free solutions equipped in their devices such as PCs and printers to enhance their productivity and flexibility as well as security. Creator, actor, and young entrepreneur Kay Lertsittichai highlighted that it is vital to possess the right technology partner in managing his multiple career and lifestyle. To be able to connect seamlessly with people and collaborate with friends, family, and colleagues from home or anywhere anytime is the key to success in his work-life balance. Playing various games on a powerful PC, not only entertains but helps him create and develop innovative content.
HP Embraces the Future of Hybrid Work The hybrid work and learn model enables users to create, consume, and collaborate with more freedom and agility. On an organizational level, businesses also need to work with the right technology infrastructure and tools to collectively move to a hybrid-operating model. To that end, HP announced a series of PCs and printers aimed at empowering workers to thrive in a hybrid world.
