We all know that modern technology helps us operate more efficiently but how many of us know of a business or two that neglects to use it to their advantage?
If one of your technology themes is flexible working/mobility/virtual teams, then perhaps there is no better time to call your customers and clients to see what they are doing in terms of enabling their businesses. You may find that the person you are trying to reach didn’t make it into work and you’ve immediately got your opportunity to help them!
Despite what the media dramatically reports, this weather should not slow us down… we are more advanced in our technology than we sometimes choose to acknowledge. Perhaps, a lack of attendance in the workplace should be put down to how motivated they were in the first place instead?
That’s another topic all together…
