Three quarters of the total U.S. workforce will be mobile by the year 2020. The ability to work remotely or have the freedom of choice within the workplace optimizes staff performance, company efficiency, and work effectiveness. Companies are faced with the challenge of adapting to the idea of choice within their work strategy, policy, and employee training and engagement. The times are changing and the way we work is changing too.
