Together, millennials and Gen Zers are demanding the opportunity to collaborate using secure, interactive, flexible software that allows them to work from anywhere, anytime, on any device. Indeed, one in three millennials, and nearly half of all Gen Zers say they would prioritize a job offer that gives them this mobility, freedom, and flexibility.
A growing body of existing research—including this Economist Intelligence Unit report on mobility, performance, and engagement—demonstrates that employee engagement is critical to workplace satisfaction, productivity, and bottom line profits. Organizations indicating more than 7 in 10 employees are engaged saw a 4 percent increase in sales growth and shareholder return compared to companies showing average engagement. Even a relatively modest 5 percent increase in employee engagement saw, on average, a 3 percent increase in revenue growth the following year.
For millennials and the members of the emerging Generation Z, this data is particularly relevant. The enterprise is tasked with providing both generations the digital workspace technology that will improve employee experience to meet their differing expectations and preferences. “Those responsible for digital transformation should focus on people, process, and technology,” Iyer concludes. “Starting with people is key. Find the talent who can co-exist with your existing workforce while growing and bringing new ideas to the table."
Millennials and Generation Z: Shaping the Digital Workspace

"Apple changed everything in mobile, but in the chaotic years after its release, there was a massive opportunity to be the alternative that would ultimately dominate marketshare. It was Microsoft’s for the taking, but Google got there first.
I started reflecting on what happened to these smartphones as the 10th anniversary of the iPhone came and went. And the thought that kept occurring to me is how little everybody knew about what was about to happen to the smartphone industry before the iPhone came along. Nobody knew what they didn’t know.
That led to some hilarious quotes from competitors that are easy to mock now. BlackBerry CEO Jim Balsillie’s ‘in terms of a sort of a sea-change for BlackBerry, I would think that’s overstating it.' Palm CEO Ed Colligan’s ‘PC guys are not going to just figure this out. They’re not going to just walk in.’ Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer’s ‘It doesn’t appeal to business customers because it doesn’t have a keyboard.’
After they said those things, all of those CEOs tried (and failed) to adequately respond to the iPhone. BlackBerry duct-taped extra software on its aging platform and tried to make the whole screen a giant button. Palm made a go of it with webOS but couldn’t get carrier support, nor make products good enough for consumers to go out and buy their devices."

I totally agree. I did the same the day after Thanksgiving when it was on sale for $39.00 I tether it to my phone. It uses next to no data I old car feels like a car of the future.

"The Asus Chromebook Flip C302A is not the best-selling Asus Chromebook on Amazon. That distinction currently goes to its cousin, the Asus Chromebook C202A, which is actually the only low-cost Chromebook I’d recommend. When you’re ready to step up to advanced features, however, such as a nicer display, 360-degree hinge, and a real metal chassis, you can stay within the Asus family and graduate to the Chromebook Flip C302A. It’s a Chromebook that you can keep using for years (perhaps even the full five years that Google promises to support it) without feeling constrained by the hardware. And when Android support becomes official, I know you’ll like that tablet mode. "
