New behaviors and technologies are entering our workplace and organizations are starting to adapt. In a few years, Millennials are going to make up the majority of the U.S. workforce. These are people who grew up using social and collaborative tools to collaborate, communicate, and engage with each other. Unfortunately our organizations still use legacy technologies, have employees working 9-5 in a cubicle, and we still get 150-200 emails a day! This way of work is dying and a new collaborative workplace is emerging. But what does this look like and what do employees need to do to adapt?
In this session Jacob Morgan, principal and co-founder of Chess Media Group and Forbes.com contributor, will explore these topics to help make sure you have the skills to adapt and succeed at work.
Following Jacob’s presentation, Kirk Trachy, business productivity consultant from Intuit, will show you how you can implement some of the ideas Jacob shared within a collaboration tool like QuickBase to improve the way you and your team get work done.
