Two major trends are affecting the way that we work. On the one hand, there is a growing push for collaboration and team-based working. On the other is the desire to enable remote working, with both business leaders and employees keen to embrace the benefits that remote working enables. Employers and managers can leverage remote working to free their employees to be more mobile and globally dispersed. Employees appreciate the ability to work with increased efficiency, as well as the preservation of work/life balance. On the surface of things, it would seem that these two trends are at odds with one another – work is becoming less tied to centralizing staff in an office, and yet it's also demanding that staff work more closely together. The only way to address that apparent divide is by enabling collaboration, which can be achieved through robust collaboration technology, such as the new Microsoft Surface Hub 2S.
