Identity Management Becoming Key to Modern Efficient Working

New white paper highlights demands of millennial workforce – shows how identity management technology can improve work/life balance and modernise working practices
A new White Paper from Identity Management specialists BioStore says that organisations can respond to the changing expectations of a modern, millennial-dominated, workforce for a more flexible working environment by embracing the identity management technology they use in personal life.
Called ‘How Identity Management Creates an Office that Capitalises on the Workforce of Today and the Future’, the free-to-download White Paper describes the changing patterns of a modern workforce and gives insights into the ways in which organisations can use Identity Management solutions to best serve the needs of both the employer and their employees.
This White Paper examines the changing makeup of the modern workforce, and how employees’ expectations have changed. Largely driven by a desire for a better work/life balance, the millennial generation is looking for a different approach from their employers. Those organisations that can be flexible, it finds, are best placed to attract and retain the best talent.
Millennials want to work more flexible hours, work from different locations and devices, and collaborate seamlessly with colleagues. If they don’t find that flexibility at their current place of work, they are liable to look for it elsewhere.
When the demands from millennials are all about decentralisation and not being tied down, one centralised identity management solution with multiple log-in options can provide the answer. With this approach, organisations can tailor their office environment to the demands of the workforce, enhancing productivity but maintaining strict levels of security in terms of access to vital company data and systems.
When employees can use the same unified authentication system – whether it be a biometric, a smartcard or a password – to sign in and out of the office, log on to devices, access the network, pick up their printing, or remotely use any service; it means their work throughout the day is tracked from whatever location they visit.
BioStore Managing Director, Nigel Walker said:
“This white paper addresses a key workplace trend. Advances in technology and the desire for a better work/life balance have led to a demand for a different approach. If organisations want to keep their best employees while also attracting new talent, they’ll need to meet these demands. At BioStore we firmly believe the best way to do this is with an integrated Identity Management system.”
