There are huge shifts in today’s business world as it adapts to the new Digital Workplace. In fact, todays digital workplace is not a place at all. Instead its defined by technology that converges with people, information and processes, a virtual space with functionality and information when, and where you need it…….It’s no longer about where you work, but how you work.
And the pace of digital transformation is getting faster and faster. Just think, it took the telephone 75 years to reach 100 million users. WhatsApp did it in just 3!
It’s this dramatic pace of change, driven by the new ways of communicating, that’s challenging organisations to find solutions that cater for the different generations of the workforce – from the Baby Boomers to the Millennials, Generation Z and the future Digital Natives.
The organisational challenge and goal, is to enable all of these generations to work and communicate in the ways they are most comfortable with, and in turn to ensure maximum productivity from your workforce irrespective of their age or generation.
It’s said that the best organisations are built by its people, and Digital Natives hold the key to your organisations future success for many years to come.
