Does your work environment look anything like that of the popular TV sitcom The Office? Probably not. If your company is like most businesses, it’s highly unlikely you see coworkers regularly communicating face to face. And there’s a good chance those type of meetings will continue to decline, according to the latest statistics.
The mobility trend has been accelerating in just the past few years. By the end of 2015, 38 percent of the world’s workforce will be mobile. That’s up 65% since 2011, reports Forrester Research.
