The New World of Work is about being agile, productive and collaborative regardless of where you are and what device you are using. Companies which enable employees with the right technology, support and work environment are empowering them to be more productive and efficient at work.

Based on a Microsoft New World of Work Online Survey of 5,000 working professionals, we found that only 44 out of 100 in Asia truly feel well equipped for today’s fast-paced digital work-life.

As Microsoft continues to innovate with Office 365, new capabilities are not just about doing work faster, but also about reinventing how you get things done. After all, work should be a thing you do and not a place you go to.

Here are some tips and tricks on how you can leverage technology to be productive wherever you are:

#1: Work from any device with Office 365


Office 365 Devices

Review, edit, analyze, and present your Office documents across any of your devices with Office 365—from your PC or Mac to your Windows, iOS and Android™ devices.

And if you’re a Windows 10 user, you’ll be pleased to learn that Universal Office apps for Windows, which include Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and OneNote, enable a similar user experience across all PCs, tablets and phones running Windows. More importantly, the apps deliver a touch and mobile-first experience, so it makes productivity as easy as a simple touch.

#2 Bring it all together with OneDrive


OneDrive for Business

Get access to your files wherever you are with OneDrive for Business, a cloud storage that is trusted, reliable and secure. With 1TB of storage per user, you can easily save thousands of documents and photos and have them sync across devices, so that you can pick up where you left off.

With the powerful search feature in OneDrive for Business[1], you can find the files you need in just seconds!

#3 Pen and paper? Try Pen and PC!


OneNote with Surface

Sometimes you get your best ideas when you’re away from the desk. The great news is that Office apps such as OneNote are optimized for smartphones and tablets –jot down inspired ideas, draw maps, doodle, record videos and audios, and share your ‘notebook’ with your colleagues in real-time – all while you’re on the go!

#4 Don’t be bound by your DIDs


Skype for Business PSTN

With Skype for Business, you will no longer need to stay by your office phone to take business calls. The app also enables you to dial into meetings remotely with either via an Internet or mobile connection.

With the new PSTN Conferencing capability coming your way to Australia and Singapore[2] soon, you can also add others to a meeting by simply dialling out to additional attendees!


Agile, responsive and modern – Office 365 provides a breadth of tools for the modern workplace. Constantly updated and scalable, you can be sure that every employee always has the latest productivity features to get things done. And with Skype for Business and enhanced productivity features in Office apps, you can be sure to hack your way through the New World of Work.
