Mobile technology has indeed changed the way businesses communicate. It has also completely revolutionised how people work and improved the levels of productivity in a business where employees can work on the go with smartphones, tablets and laptops.
The global movement towards mobile technology is completely changing the way businesses work and what employers expect from employees.
Everything is now on-demand: Mobile technology is driving the on-demand marketplace which has opened up a new world of opportunities for the on-demand workforce. More on-demand service platforms are popping up and more mobile platforms are helping workers connect.
Flexible hours: The ability to work from anywhere with Internet access has given rise to the flexible workplace. Increasingly, the traditional working hours of 9 to 5 are fading away and are being replaced by staff integrating their work into their home lives by working from home or at night. Employers are now competing for talented workers by offering perks that include having a flexible schedule and the ability to work from home.
Small and agile teams: Mobile technology lets businesses run with smaller teams, especially when business owners or managers tap into the freelance workforce. Technology is also making workplace rituals much easier through cloud technology, automation and open platforms, which allows real-time data to flow through multiple systems, cutting out or limiting the time it takes to complete many admin tasks.
