When employers and employees are divided geographically, emerging software can bridge the gap and enable working together.
We’ve seen a significant increase in contingent workers since the Great Recession; technology is one of the reasons this growth is possible. Employees no longer have to be in the same location to feel connected. Technology can help us feel a part of a team even if we’re thousands of miles away.
There’s a specific technology that’s helping to pave the way — social collaboration software. This software market was a $600 million industry in 2010, but it’s estimated to reach $6.4 billion in 2016. If you’re looking for a way to stay connected, feel engaged and get stuff done, exploring social collaboration could be worthwhile.
