The way we work transforms and changes daily and with it comes unforeseen challenges and opportunities. Many now have the ability and freedom to work wherever and sometimes whenever they want. But what does this mean for the actual work and working relationships of those now geographically distributed?

Mobility in today’s world of work means flexibility in where you work, the hours that you keep, where and how you consume information and how you access learning content. Mobility or flexible working may mean working remotely when you used to go into an office, it may mean hybrid remote/office schedules, or it may mean that you take time in your day to attend a virtual training without ever leaving your office.

But this mobility and flexibility may mean some organizational and technological changes:

  • Establishing communication channels and cadence.
  • Streamlining or completely revising workflows and processes.
  • Adjusting or realigning core business hours.
  • Creating opportunities for interaction and brainstorming.
  • Making time for upskilling and cross-skilling and learning from peers.
  • Digitizing previously in-person interactions, processes, or workflows.
  • Changing file sharing and meeting applications to ensure accessibility for those outside the physical walls of the organization.

With all this change brings opportunities for growth, development, and increased productivity. This new flexibility and accessibility creates more time and space to think differently, gain new skills, build new connections, and focus on the critical tasks at hand.

The first step in leveraging the benefits of the new mobile and flexible workforce is to consider your organization’s relationship with mobility and flexibility. Get to know what your organization needs and what technology and productivity barriers they are facing. This will create a foundation for what the future of work looks like to your organization and how this best serves your customers and clients.

Here at Evolve we considered what we aim to do for you and were curious about the ways that our solutions are affected by mobility. How does mobility effect learning, change, our security, and our processes?


Mobility is increasingly important in learning as technology develops and the way that we work changes. Mobility means that learners can and will engage anywhere. For this reason, learning must be dynamic, easily transferable between devices, be delivered in multiple formats, and maintain engagement no matter the medium. Learning must be accessible and mobile without bandwidth, technology, or time barriers.


When it comes to change, your people, processes, and technology all play a major role in your organization’s ability to enact change. Where this change is taking place, whether that’s virtually or in-person, and how that change is implemented matters more now than ever. Accessibility and flexibility in change means you must meet people where they are to move your organization forward. This means planning further in advance, acknowledging the rate of change your organization is facing, considering different or new approaches, ensuring the organization has the skills it needs to sustain the change, and being mindful of the mindset shifts that will sustain the change.


Technology that is mobile still needs to be accessible and secure. Security is the priority but be mindful that access from remote locations might be a barrier because of security measures. When business can take place anywhere, any where’s Wi-Fi stability or firewalls become major factors. Making sure that technology is accessible and secure makes technology an enabler.


Digital Transformation is all about optimizing your tools and staying connected. Digitizing backlogged files, streamlining operating models, and aligning your organization is crucial in a digital world where it’s easier than ever to connect. The “half-hearted” approaches to accommodate or work-around offline tools and processes are a thing of the past. In a post-pandemic world touchless and paperless are the new normal. The traditional brick and mortar that took initiative to significantly alter operations for safety now have a competitive advantage.

Evolve understands that every organization is unique and increasing mobility in your organization isn’t going to be easy – change never is. Being a virtual company, we have a strong team of workers who understand mobility first-hand. We’ll use our experience to help your organization learn, change, and improve your customer and employee experience. Schedule a consult today.
