Future of Work – What will offices look like in the Metaverse ?


The
future of work is very different now than it was a few years ago. With the
emergence of new technologies, such as virtual reality (VR), augmented reality
(AR) and metaverse, the number of companies moving their activity into
cyberspace is increasing.

There
are many positives of working in the Metaverse, including improving
flexibility, efficiency, and productivity, as companies that have already moved
their work to the virtual world are seeing interesting results, but before we
go into the details of the positives of the Metaverse, we will learn about the
concept of the Metaverse.

What is metaverse?

It
is a virtual world on the Internet, featuring a number of virtual reality (VR)
and augmented reality (AR) environments that people can explore and interact
with. We can say that the Metaverse is a virtual version of the real world,
where you can meet new people, visit new places, and do anything you can
imagine.

One
of the most important advantages of working in the Metaverse is the ability to
work from anywhere in the world. You will not be restricted to one work
location when you use a virtual office, as you can live and work anywhere you
want, and you will be able to set your working hours at any time you want
according to your daily schedule.

How to access the
metaverse?

The
Metaverse can be accessed via various devices such as virtual reality headsets,
augmented reality glasses, and smartphones. There are many different metaverse
platforms, each with unique features and capabilities.

Let’s
take a look at the most popular platforms:

ü  Second
Live:
The oldest and most famous metaverse
platform and is usually used by many companies regardless of their size,
starting with small-sized youth companies and ending with well-known companies.

ü  Sansar:
It is a modern platform launched by the team responsible for the Second Life
platform. The design of this platform allows for greater ease of use and
access.

ü  High
Fidelity:
One of the well-known metaverse platforms
that allows its users to create their own virtual world.

ü  VR
Chat:
  A
social networking platform in the Metaverse that is popular among fans of
electronic games and has many users.

Is marketing in the
metaverse better than marketing in our real world?

The
impact of the metaverse on marketing and advertising is a topic that has
generated interest and many questions about it. Virtual reality is a new and
unique way to interact with customers and promote products. Companies will
share unique virtual products with their customers that they can try before
they buy, and this could change the concept of marketing products and services.

However,
there are some potential downsides to marketing in the metaverse. One of them
is the difficulty of controlling marketing campaign expenses because virtual
reality is a new technology in which companies cannot accurately measure the
return on investment. Clients may not be prepared enough to accept this change,
which is another potential downside because VR is a professional environment
that some people are not comfortable with the idea of ​​trying and delving
into.

Moreover,
there must be a large and sufficient number of Metaverse users for companies
and marketing campaigns to continue operating. Users must also be part of the
category the companies are targeting. This will require analyzing the metaverse
platform over a long period of time, in addition to sufficient capital to
operate a pilot platform.

Can Metaverse
improve communication in workspaces?

Improving
communication and enhancing collaboration between employees is one of the main
advantages of Metaverse, as virtual reality allows people to meet and work with
their colleagues in a shared virtual space, regardless of where they are in the
world. This can facilitate communication with colleagues and clients and build
relationships with professional people.

Metaverse
can improve communication between team members in the virtual office, as
employees can communicate directly with their colleagues and managers, which
contributes to keeping everyone fully informed of what is going on and thus
finding easier solutions to problems.

What are the
potential implications of working in the metaverse?

Virtual
reality is capable of radically changing our personal and professional lives.
For companies, moving to the metaverse could be a game-changer as employees can
work thanks to virtual offices from anywhere in the world and marketing
campaigns can reach a whole new level.

Servcorp’s
virtual offices allow companies to work from anywhere in the world, but
Metaverse technology has a different visual element.

Metaverse
can significantly affect our personal lives, and virtual reality may transport
us to different worlds and may give us the opportunity to have experiences that
cannot be achieved in our real world. As a result, the Metaverse may become a
second home for many people.

Despite
the development of Metaverse technology, moving to it will not be without many
challenges.

What are the
disadvantages of working in the metaverse?

There
are many positives to working in the metaverse, but there are some potential
negative aspects to consider. One of the biggest risks is people becoming
overly dependent on technology. This dependence may negatively affect
employees’ ability to communicate or cooperate with each other effectively in
the real world, and thus this will be reflected in the quality of their work.

Working
in the metaverse may be a reason for isolation and avoiding mixing with people.
Virtual reality can be a great way to connect with people from all over the
world, but feelings of isolation can easily creep in if you’re not used to
working alone.

A
form similar to this isolation has spread in the past period, as the term “Zoom
fatigue” has spread widely, meaning the feeling of isolation and exhaustion
during the quarantine period that forced us to work remotely and use the Zoom
application. This feeling reached its peak during the early stages of the
quarantine period, when face-to-face communication with co-workers was cut off.

Another
negative aspect is that companies are not prepared for the process of moving
their business to the Metaverse, which is still a new and developing technology
that not all companies will be able to keep up with. Although Metaverse
technology has developed enough to be used, it may not constitute the
appropriate work environment for different work sectors, and working in the
Metaverse in its entirety requires extensive research.

For
now, most companies will treat the metaverse as just an idea without giving it
much importance, but we cannot deny the competitive advantage that all forms of
technology bring to companies.
