Today’s business leaders face the challenge of creating the future workplace. Because of the advent of new technologies as well as the emergence of Millennials as a major percentage of the workforce, the future workplace will look vastly different than the one we are used to. At the same time, a culture of sharing, transparency, and mobility is entering the business world, as technology barriers lower. This change is being driven by the consumerization of IT, which can be described as the introduction of the popular consumer-grade technologies and devices that are spreading into the workplace for business use.
To better understand the scope and nature of this changes, Chess Media Group conducted a global research study in May 2013, surveying 605 employees who currently use social and collaboration technology tools, and how these tools affect their ability to work efficiently and flexibly.
