Word docs, PowerPoints and 9-to-5 work days are quickly joining typewriters and fax machines in the history of work. Stand-alone mobile apps and offline software will soon take their place in history as well.
The Future of Work is a seamless experience that happens across every device, platform and location. You determine where you work, how you work, who you connect with (one person or one thousand people and the tools you use—it’s everywhere you are. Collaboration is the new normal, and ReadyTalk wants to be the provider of collaborative technology.
Here is some real data about what’s happening in the workplace:
• By 2020, Millennials will comprise 50 percent of the global workforce. That means many of the existing procedures and tools will change.
• Global output is becoming increasingly dependent on digital technologies and methodologies.
• Currently, 34 million people “occasionally” telecommute, and this is expected to increase to 63 million by 2016.
• Inc. reported that people spend 5.6 hours each week in meetings, and over 70 percent of American employees reported that these meetings “aren’t very productive.”
Clearly, big changes will be happening in the workplace in the next couple of years. But one of the most important factors of business success will remain the same: the need for effective communication wherever you are and whenever you want.
Collaborative technology, such as audio and web conferencing, is going to play a huge role in the Future of Work.
