How do you keep a global workforce connected to the business, to each other, and to the bigger picture?
The class of 2015 is gearing up to join the enterprise. Born in the nineties, their memory of a world before the Internet, mobile technology and even social media is distant. Their classrooms were filled with technology-based learning and their expectations of the enterprise will be no different.
To attract the best talent from this new labour market, businesses need to offer the tools, technology and working practices that meet end user expectations – while continuing to provide Traditionalists and Baby Boomers with the tools they need to do their jobs. That means supporting employees who like to switch between emails, texts, messaging apps and social media tools as much as those who prefer to pick up the phone.
As a company with more than 90,000 employees spread out across demographics and continents, we have learnt through our own experience just how important it is to provide employees with the tools they need to work productively. By adopting a Total Communications strategy and consolidating our own wired, wireless, cloud and fixed line communications we enable our people to connect, collaborate and work together regardless of location, working style or technology preference.
Employees across our network can meet face-to-face with colleagues around the world through video and Unified Communications even when they’re away from their desks. We aim to digitally enable our employees to share information, resources and knowledge.
This collaborative environment, achieved through technology, ensures that all employees feel part of the bigger team, totally connected to each other and the business.
