During the pandemic, much has changed. One way life has changed is how and where some people go to work. The purpose of this project is to explore how to design a virtual workspace to give remote workers the capabilities to manage their day, connect to people, and maintain the company culture.
The target audience includes small to medium size businesses that work partially or fully remote.
Current Challenges: Work-life balance, and Feeling of isolation, communication issues.
The solution I came up with to solve these problems is a digital product that is an extension of your team to bring people together while maintaining projects.
My approached to this project with a holistic view. Keeping in mind the overall well being of the main users. The goal of this project is to explore how to design a virtual workspace to provide remote workers the capabilities to manage their day, connect to people, and maintain the company culture.
Elevate was designed as a one-stop-shop for employees to manage their day, connect with their fellow team members, and discover current news/events in their company.
The first page the user lands on after login is the dashboard that acts as a transition period before going into work. This will make use of a CMS system to pull the newest event to the forefront.
To prevent burnout, the hourglass feature aims to identify when you have taken a break from your work or space to go to have an organic conversation. The user can change the amount of time before a reminder or turn off the feature completely if they prefer.
Users can create a profile for themselves to connect and collaborate with other employees through multiple social avenues. Here the user can also update their status and quickly find files that are shared through a chat.
