Technology advances in the work place
The majority of work places around the world have been impacted by the advancement of technology. Work places that are not keeping up with the trends are usually the first to lose good people.
One of the ways technology has changed the workforce is by remote working becoming normal. Software systems such as Slack and Google Docs have made it very simple for employees to be able to communicate.
There is an improved work-life balance thanks to remote working. People are happier and this reflects in their work. Their stress levels are lower and traffic congestion is completely eliminated from the equation.
Technology also assists in creating diversity and inclusion in the work place. People from all different walks of life are able to collaborate together. New ideas and new ways of thinking ultimately lead to a company’s success.
The workplace as we used to know it is constantly adapting. Thanks to technology it is changing for the better. The change in technology has assisted big tech giants to recruit and retain some of the most skilled people in the world.
“Technology now allows people to connect anytime, anywhere, to anyone in the world, from almost any device. This is dramatically changing the way people work, facilitating 24/7 collaboration with colleagues who are dispersed across time zones, countries, and continents.” — Michael Dell, Chairman and CEO of Dell
