With the advances in technology, end users are being offered easier and faster options to communicate and work efficiently. Mobile devices are playing a huge role in allowing today’s workforce to be at distant locations and yet be productive. Kiran Datar, vice president, Moxtra (A company into mobile applications) shares some of his thoughts as to how technology is increasingly changing workplace culture.
Communication is an essential part of life. The ability to communicate clearly and effectively is one of the skills that businesses look for in employees. More than 81 per cent of employees use their personal mobile devices and 91 per cent of recruiters use social media for recruiting. As technology keeps growing and helping in making communication easier than how it used to be few years back, companies expect their employees to engage actively on social media. The technological advances achieved during the past few decades, have brought about a revolution in the business world, affecting nearly all aspects of a working life. People all across the world, can reach others in a matter of seconds, with cost being increasingly negligible.
