NTT DATA has launched its Empowered Work initiative to modernize its employee experience through an ecosystem of tools aimed to create a more efficient, sustainable, collaborative and accessible workplace.
Empowered Work aims to leverage human-centered design, AI, automation and analytics technologies to guide the company’s clients and employees in the adoption and implementation of hybrid workplace strategies and best practices, the company said Monday.
The new initiative was created in response to a growing demand for improved customer and employee experiences, secure anytime/anywhere workspaces and increased collaboration capabilities as employers work to unify a workforce that is increasingly dispersed.
“We believe employers have an increasing responsibility to look out for the whole person. NTT DATA is on a mission to empower our workforce and clients as they go from the great resignation to the great transformation,” said NTT DATA’s Chief Digital and Strategy Officer, Eric Clark.
As part of the Empowered Work initiative, NTT DATA will take a holistic view of digital and consulting services to advance companies’ digital transformation objectives and create an innovative, modern work environment for their employees.
Additionally, NTT DATA plans to build “smart-space” hubs in major cities such as Boston, Washington D.C. and New York where employees and clients have access to multi-screen dynamic collaboration tools, a virtual receptionist and room scheduling services in support of both in-person and virtual collaborative work environments.
Recently, NTT DATA launched a Smart Back to Work Application designed to help federal agencies comply with new COVID-19 safety protocols and vaccination requirements.
