“How do we encourage and equip employees to use technology professionally?” This is one of the most common questions we get from managers and leaders in today’s workplace.
Over the past 15 years, technology has completely revolutionized the ways in which we work. From video-conferencing that allows employees to meet from anywhere in the world to wearable watches that notify us of emails while we’re out for a run, almost every area of business has been impacted by technology in some way, shape, or form.
But, these advantages also create new challenges for business leaders. Some employees are burning out because they have a hard time disconnecting. Other employees are distracted from work because of the flexibility and freedom technology provides. Managers are being forced to learn how to lead employees who work remotely, and employees are often left guessing on the expectations their managers have when it comes to using technology in the workplace.
