Yesterday I had the pleasure of being a part of the first blogger event of TDS, one of my clients. TDS crew — including CEO Dave Wittwer — and six bloggers discussed the question: What’s the Future of the Digital Workplace?
Bloggers Thomas Clifford, Tommytrc.com; Don Stanley, 3rhinomedia.com; Catherine Morgan, A to B Transitions; Paul Gibler, ibmadison.com; Tom Snyder, Triveraguy.com; and Kris Cain, Little Tech Girl offered ideas, commentary and plenty of tweets about the topics.
Prompted by the new book, The Digital Workplace, How Technology is Liberating Work by Paul Miller, the group heard presentations and had discussions about:
- How you stay and feel connected in the digital workplace
- TDS’ managedIP demo as an example of how your workplace tools can help employees manage and keep customers happy
- What will be the most productive way to work in the future
- And how to get your corporate culture to shift to accept digital workplace changes
- By 2016, it’s estimated that 63 million people will work from home — or 43% of the workforce
- The belief that CEO’s are scared of the unknown (i.e., digital workplace, social media) and they are losing out on brand advocates
- Mobile device proliferation will increase from 64 million to 320 million by 2015
- Only 6% of the 3 billion emails daily are “real” v. spam
The key to it all? An attitude of embracing the possibilities of a digital workplace will get beyond issues of trust, security and more.
