Today’s workforce is accustomed to going online to get everything, including a date and even groceries. As your organization gears up for the next decade, there will be an expectation that more information and services will be available to workers around the clock. Millennials, now the largest generation in the workforce expect their application to onboarding to checking benefits and paid time off to be available online. Once you move in this direction, you will begin to free up time to focus on the tasks at hand, as well as business strategy.
