Technology Matters!

By Kate Sykes, CareerMums

Technology plays a big part in creating a more flexible workforce. Stop for a minute and think about technology as it was 10 years ago.

No YouTube. No facebook. No Twitter.
We had only just starting using email.
No iphones, Blackberries, or ipads.
We bought CDs to listen to music.
We had dial-up internet.
No webinars, skype or teleconferencing.
No kindles or ebooks.
No online banking.
No digital TVs where you can record shows and watch later or download shows from the internet.

You have to wonder how technology will challenge and influence our way of working in the next 10 years. It is so important to keep up to speed with changing technology in the workplace. if you are not confident with computers or technology, challenge yourself to go and learn. Or ask your children!

On another ( scary)note - Gen Z (1994-2004) are entering the workforce this year. And they only know technology!
