Future of Work – what tech to expect back in the office

For employees returning to the office (full time or occasionally), KCIT is committed to making your transition as stress-free as possible. The Future of Work may look a little different for each department, but KCIT is launching new technology to bridge the distance between colleagues and foster greater collaboration. Here are some innovations you can expect in the coming months:

  • Reserve your workspace in the office

For employees without a permanent desk, KCIT will offer a new drop-in desk reservation system. The new system, ESRI Indoors, will launch this fall for agencies in Chinook and King Street Station. If you’re part of the initial launch, you’ll receive detailed instructions soon.

  • Connect seamlessly in smart conference rooms
    More than 125 conference rooms in the Chinook building and King Street Center are scheduled to be fitted with standardized tech hubs that streamlines connectivity and provides a shared experience for employees in the office, in the field, and working from home. To get started, view these Microsoft Surface Hub training videos.

  • New KCWeb Intranet functionality
    King County’s KCWeb intranet homepage is getting a makeover. The new modern SharePoint design will bring timely and relevant information to the forefront, giving you access to your favorite apps, web pages and King County newsfeeds. This will reduce the need for browser bookmarks and email newsletters crowding your inbox.
