Over the past 10 years, we’ve seen a seismic shift in the availability of technological tools available to facilitate the world of working 24/7. Wherever and whenever we are working, we are faced with a dizzying array of options. For example, according to a recent Siemen’s study people are frustrated and overwhelmed by the tools for collaboration and team working.
Our panel of experts will share their experiences and endeavour to answer questions like:
- What stuff is available out there to help us cope with the 24/7 working environment?
- How do we use this technology effectively?
- Should we be managing differently? If so, how?
- How do managers cope with the stress of 24/7 availability?
- Does the flexibility offered by technology based remote working enhance productivity?
- Can we afford to be ill in the 24/7 world?
Our panel will comprise those with experience of these diverse styles of working whose experience can help the rest of us cope.
To explore these aspects there will be 15-20 minute presentations from our two speakers Matt Mower and Jacqui Hogan.
