Managing Noise: While On the Go
Technology has transformed the workplace from the traditional office into just about any place where work can get done. Today, two-thirds of the North American and European workforce reported spending at least some time working outside a corporate office.1 Mobile collaboration accounts for that major shift, promising increased employee collaboration and productivity via simplified communication. But this exciting new business reality is not without its challenges, the biggest of which is background noise.
