The way organizations conduct business is ever changing thanks to the rise of mobile technology and cloud computing. Where work was typically conducted within the office, it now increasingly takes place in homes, hotels, airports and while sipping a non-fat latte with no foam and an extra shot of espresso. No doubt, mobility offers great advantages, but it’s even more critical to make sure employees stay connected and on the same page.
