Workplaces whether public or private, are experiencing massive changes that are challenging nominal ways of working and workforce expectations. The economic realities of ongoing financial constraints and reduced headcounts and budgets; coupled with increasing stakeholder expectations are creating a demanding environment where employees are expected to deliver results regardless of the mounting challenges.
In addition, the working styles of a new generation and new technologies have created a plugged in and connected workforce that is engulfed in real time response requirements via instant messaging, email, phone calls, and mobile and social network access.
