I'm the founder of FutureWork IQ where I spend my time assisting businesses to design digital workplaces or “offices in the cloud.” These environments enable companies to allow flexible and remote working for their teams. I also teach the digital literacy, fluency, communication and collaboration skills needed to work in these modern technology-rich workplaces.

This is the conclusion reached by research commissioned by Polycom.

Those companies who understand this reality and as a result aggressively evolve their businesses to enable their teams to work from anywhere are becoming industry leaders and talent attractors.

From the report:

“Most business leaders will agree that developments in technology have fundamentally changed both the way we do business and the way we work. So much so that the ‘future of work’ is no longer a conversation topic just for the collaboration technology industry. In fact, the technological innovations of the past decade have powered a digital transformation that all industries are now facing up to. ‘Innovate or die’ has never felt more real.”
