20 Nov Cutting the chord: Why mobility is a must for millennials
The millennial generation is entering the job market in massive numbers. Some predictions say they will make up half of the entire workforce within the next two years. This generation was practically born online and now they expect connectivity and mobility, not just personally but professionally as well—yet another reason why businesses will need to look for solutions such as ERP cloud computing.
An article on nectoday.com explains why accommodating this generation with mobility capabilities is so important for a business to be successful in today’s world.
Millennials sleep with their smartphone at their bedside and in the morning they check their messages before they do anything else. They expect to be able to work anytime, from anywhere and on any device. A survey by Accenture Global Reseach shows that 77 percent of employees in the US said that technology makes their work life better, and you can expect that number to be even higher for millennials.
But it’s not just about making them happy. A mobile work environment provided by software such as hosted ERP is what this new workforce will need to be their most efficient.
