Rob Ferris, CEO of Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd, discusses the need for flexibility and adaptability as we move into the next financial year.
How do we learn from the past two years?
As we reflect on the recent past, we must learn what we can from our disruptors, as it will make us stronger for the future. We must make sure we don’t head to the office just because it’s a Wednesday but rather, we consciously think about the outcomes we want/need to achieve individually and collectively. The value of getting together in person to innovate and collaborate is undeniable. This must be encouraged and embraced. However, travelling for hours to an office to just sit and work at a screen, or to feel it’s important to be visibly ‘physically present’ is not logical or in-keeping with what we have learnt from how we have worked.
I am so proud to be leading Konica Minolta in the UK, where we embrace and encourage true “choice” based working; empowering all colleagues to own the decision of where they work based on how they feel they can be most productive and deliver the desired outcomes.
