Companies are increasingly turning to technology to manage the complex needs of a hybrid workforce. This is corroborated by Lenovo’s recent global study of CIOs, which reveals that CIOs are managing areas beyond their traditional purview, like HR and talent acquisition (39%). Tasked with these additional responsibilities, CIOs need cohesive technology solutions and services that will free up their time from the maintenance and upkeep of IT. This enables them to focus on more strategic imperatives such as building an attractive workplace in view of an increasingly hybrid workforce, by provisioning innovative user-centric applications that employees want, fast across remote desktops.

The Lenovo Workspace Solutions portfolio helps organizations with deep data analytics which wil form the basis of the workspace resizing and/or redesigning to create a truly employee-centric, flexible office space and reduce costs at the same time.
