Perspective series: Fluid Society
The world in which we’re living and working is constantly changing. All aspects of life, both at home and in the workplace, are being brought together by technology.
We’re calling this 'fluid society'. In this report we explore how the internet has put a wealth of information within easy reach, and how a unified communications strategy can enable your business to break through these blurring boundaries.
Tied into this is globalisation. Even those content with sticking to their domestic market will still need to think globally. In our survey of 300 senior managers in UK PLCs, 68% believe that it’s easier to trade internationally now than it ever has been. And advances in travel and technology mean even the smallest of businesses can expand beyond their home shores.
The public sector also has some new-found ways of working. Shared services sees local authorities collaborating for joint benefit, sharing services like finance, HR and procurement. Initially met with cynicism, 68% of Public Sector leaders we surveyed now view it positively.
