Together with WORKTECH Academy, Brivo has created a model that enables a company to plot where it is on its journey to digital transformation and hybrid working. In a new report — titled, “Integrating Control: Access and Security in Hybrid Working” — Brivo outlines how companies can learn about these four typologies and the key components to consider when setting up future hybrid work strategy.

According to the report, cloud-based access control is the gateway to enabling companies to meet employee expectations and business goals. This report shares Brivo’s research and how industry leaders Deloitte, Cumulus Media and KPMG are tackling the hybrid workplace.

The report sets out the context in which cloud-based access control systems will increasingly operate — at the intersection between technology systems integration and the adoption of hybrid working by organizations, which is a key feature of the current landscape. Brivo’s study moves past the theoretical and sets out the facts of what is actually happening on the ground with hybrid uptake, digital transformation, building security, connected technology ecosystems and decision-making with data before going on to identify and discuss four different organizational typologies in Brivo’s custom ‘Framework for Hybrid Integration’.

This model is based on the relationship between the level of system integration and the preparedness for adapting to the modern work environment. The four steps or stations along this journey are:

Bystanders: Companies that are defined by a low level of hybrid adoption and a low level of system integration.

Wanderers: Companies that have enthusiastically embarked on a journey to hybrid working, but in doing so, they have left themselves exposed.

Returners: Companies with low hybrid adoption but high systems integration.

Integrators: Companies that are leading the field when it comes to both hybrid adoption and system integration.
