IT leaders must shift their strategies around workforce technology in order to harness millennial employees’ full potential and make the enterprise more connected and productive.
Mobile devices and applications are central to this shift. Millennials are much more engaged with their mobile devices than previous generations, and also consistently report that they see greater productivity gains from smartphone usage.
